Mc Carthy column: Valley sisters’ good will reached all the way to Mexico. And Fiji. And Samoa. And Tahiti. And beyond…

This is a tale of two sisters who embarked on a service project in 2014 that was so grand in scope, so implausible that even their own parents thought it would be near impossible for them to succeed. But, they did. Taylor Jackson, then 10, and her younger sister, Jordyn, 5, wanted to deliver soccer balls to poor and orphaned children around world. Not collect the balls and have them shipped, or drop them off at local charities to be put in care packages with other items, and hope they got in the...

An Epstein tell-all, a vengeful Queen wannabe, and Harry & Meghan’s final insult, in this week’s dubious tabloids

Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell experiences that in the ‘National Enquirer,’ under the headline: “Epstein Lover Peddling Perv’s Kinky Secrets. Ghislaine Maxwell Could Score $4m!” That’s a high price to command, even if Maxwell was willing to reveal salacious details of Prince Andrew’s alleged liaisons with Epstein’s under-age sex slaves. But the story makes it clear that Maxwell is not trying to sell her story. There’s only a "London high-society pal”...

Lakers’ Frank Vogel says DeMarcus Cousins ‘not close’ to a return

EL SEGUNDO — The Lakers’ first practice after the All-Star break ended the way many often have lately. DeMarcus Cousins stood on the opposite end of the team’s practice facility from the media, shooting 3-pointers. Since August, when he tore the ACL in his left knee, this has been mostly a curiosity. On Thursday, it was a talking point. Cousins fanned some of this fire himself with his appearance on the “All The Smoke” podcast with former NBA players Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, his first su...

DOJ Attorney Walks Back Bill Barr’s Walk Back Of Stone Sentencing Memo

John Crabb  — the deputy chief of the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office criminal division who jumped into the case after the trial team abruptly resigned last week — essentially backed the original sentencing proposal filed by the tri...

How Martin Luther King Jr. and Motown Saved the Sound of the Civil Rights Movement

You know Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Or at least you think you know it—you’ve read about it in textbooks, or heard politicians quote from it, or seen clips in classrooms or museums. But chances are, you haven’t heard the full 17-minute address from the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, and what you have heard failed to capture what made it the one of the most famous speeches in history. Even if you wanted to, despite its renown, it’s surprisingly hard to find...
