What's happening in California could happen across the U.S. if we're not careful with our water

fusion.net — There seems to be no end in sight to the current drought facing California.

‘They’re firing nonstop’: Chilling video of a Baltimore standoff

fusion.net — Baltimore descended into chaos Monday night, as people the city's mayor referred to as "thugs" looted stores and clashed with police in the streets.
