Dri Darby , Neighbor Posted | Updated Reply Wednesday April 19th, 1995 began as another typical day in Oklahoma City. And then at 9:02 in the morning, a truck bomb, parked by Timothy McVeigh, detonated next to the north facade of the 9-story Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in Downtown Oklahoma City. The blast shattered the entire northern half of the building, causing it to collapse in a monstrous avalanche of glass, concrete, and steel rebar. The blast of the bomb and the collapse of the building crushed 168 people to death. Over 300 other buildings were also damaged by McVeigh's bomb, some of them beyond repair. A few were shifted from their foundations by the concussion of the blast. A daycare center, located on the second floor of … [Read more...] about The 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing as we remember it 28 years later.

California AG Points Finger at Ron DeSantis Over Latest Migrant Flights
A second flight of migrants touched down in Sacramento Monday, just days after a charter plane dropped more than a dozen South American migrants off there last week. This time, 20 people were on board, the California attorney general’s office confirmed to local news station KCRA 3. Monday’s flight path was the same as Friday’s flight—taking off from El Paso, Texas, with a pit stop in Deming, New Mexico, before landing in Sacramento. California officials are continuing to investigate the source of both flights, but California Attorney General Rob Bonta said he believes Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is behind them. “From what we can tell, it was all part of the same scheme, the same official policy of the state of Florida whereby the state of Florida used public tax dollars to fund this program, the so-called voluntary transportation program,” Bonta told KCRA 3 . The documents were the same documents identified in the migrants from Friday, as per a statement issued over the … [Read more...] about California AG Points Finger at Ron DeSantis Over Latest Migrant Flights
How James Van Der Beek Became Fox News’ New Hero
It looks like conservatives have found their latest Hollywood spokesperson in the star of Dawson’s Creek. (Or so they think.) On Tuesday, actor James Van Der Beek took to Instagram to call out the Democratic National Committee for their unified backing of President Joe Biden, who’s preparing to announce his bid for re-election in 2024. Currently, the DNC has no primary debates scheduled for Biden and his handful of Democratic opponents, which has led to some outcry from the party members, like former Ohio Senator Nina Turner , and Biden’s presidential challengers, Marianne Williamson and Robert F. Kennedy . “I cannot get over the fact that the Democratic National Committee is saying there will not be a debate to decide the nominee for president,” the 46-year-old actor said, while pushing his child in a stroller. “Are you fucking kidding me? There’s no debate?” “There’s no debate over an 80-year-old man who, if he lives, will be the oldest sitting president in the … [Read more...] about How James Van Der Beek Became Fox News’ New Hero

Judge Rejects Deal to Overhaul City’s Public Housing
[What you need to know to start your day: Get New York Today in your inbox .] A federal judge rejected a sweeping settlement on Wednesday that would have appointed a monitor to oversee the troubled New York City Housing Authority and required the city to pump at least $1.2 billion into repairs. The judge, William H. Pauley III, also strongly suggested that the federal government should take over the authority instead. In a scathing opinion, Judge Pauley deplored the “breathtaking scope” of the squalid living conditions in the city’s public housing complexes. He rebuked the city for its mismanagement of the agency, and said the federal government had abdicated its legal responsibility to overhaul the nation’s largest stock of public housing that is home to about 400,000 vulnerable New Yorkers. The unexpected ruling threw the future of the Housing Authority into doubt and unraveled a deal that Mayor Bill de Blasio had staked his reputation on as a champion of public … [Read more...] about Judge Rejects Deal to Overhaul City’s Public Housing
Wes Anderson’s ‘Asteroid City’: How Wessy Is It?
Wes Anderson’s directorial style is so distinctive and particular — so Wessy — that it’s spawned no end of recent A.I. parodies . But how do those imitations compare with the real thing? Many of Anderson’s signature obsessions are on display in his new movie, “ Asteroid City ,” a ’50s-set comedy about different sets of parents accompanying their space-obsessed kids to a convention in the desert, where they all must quarantine together after receiving an unexpected visitor from the skies. (Strained family dynamics, nerdy children and whimsical settings … check, check, check!) Critics appeared split on the movie after its Cannes Film Festival premiere on Tuesday: though “Asteroid City” got glowing notices in The Telegraph and IndieWire , Variety deemed it “for Anderson die-hards only.” That suggests this is his Wessiest movie yet, a case that could certainly be made when you consider the following: It’s filled with his favorite actors. The expansive cast includes … [Read more...] about Wes Anderson’s ‘Asteroid City’: How Wessy Is It?
