Happy for the Kings and especially Justin Williams, who sealed the deal for the Hurricanes in Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup final!
The Los Angeles Kings knocked off the New York Rangers in a second overtime Friday night, putting the Left Coast club at the top of the NHL heap. It’s a feat even Wayne Gretzky couldn’t pull off.

'Unaccompanied minors' detained at the border total 47,000 since October – up from 13,000 in all of fiscal 2012. They are swamping US ability to cope, so the FEMA director has been called in. But that's just a short-term solution.

Nice insights by my colleague Brad Knickerbocker.
Hillary Clinton is taking a break from her book tour and speaking schedule. But she’ll be back at it in the fall, very aware that her lead over all potential Republican presidential rivals may be slipping.

Will immigration system ultimately see border kids as refugees or gold-diggers My latest ...
An overwhelmed US immigration system is trying to figure out the exact legal status of thousands of immigrant children rushing the US border. In one of the most politicized asylum systems in the Western world, that won’t be easy.

No, the NRA hasn't gone soft on gun rights. But it views carrying assault-style rifles into restaurants, as practiced by Open Carry Texas, as doing more harm to the movement than good.
