World News (May 6, 2018 Edition): “This Is As Bad As It Gets”: Magma Flowing From Hawaii’s Kilauea Forces Thousands To Flee – “To His Dying Breath”: McCain Regrets Picking Palin, Wants Pence But Not Trump At Funeral

“This Is As Bad As It Gets” – Magma Flowing From Hawaii’s Kilauea Forces Thousands To Flee:

After first erupting on Thursday, Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has continued to send molten magma up through the eight fissures that have now opened up in the ground in a part of Hawaii that is home to several ritzy neighborhoods, including the tony Leilani Estates, where residents have been forced to flee as the eruptions, as well as several powerful earthquakes, have destroyed power lines and disrupted and left parts of the surrounding area without water.

One area resident summed up the neighborhood’s plight in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

“This is as bad as it gets,” said John Bennett, 61, a resident of the Leilani Estates neighborhood forced to evacuate. “We can’t go back in yet. I feel lost. I don’t know what to think. I’ve never been in this situation before.”

The estimated 1,800 people who live in the affected area have sought temporary respite in government shelters. Others have moved in friends on other islands.

Japan Is So Broke That Its Prisons Are Full Of 80+ Year Old ‘Felons’

Japan Is So Broke That Its Prisons Are Full Of 80+ Year Old ‘Felons’:

‘Mrs. F.’ was 84 years old the first time she ever went to prison.

Her crime? Petty shoplifting. She stole rice, strawberries, and cold medicine.

She served her time. Got released. Then shoplifted again so that she’d go back to prison.

She’s now 89 years old serving out another 2 ½ year sentence, not too far away from where I am right now, at a women’s prison about 60 miles outside of Tokyo.

She’s not the only one.
