JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — The recent discovery of the USS Juneau in the depths of the South Pacific has provided some closure to people with connections to the ship, which was blown apart during World War II. Hundreds died, including the five Sullivan brothers from Waterloo, Iowa, whose story was chronicled in a 1944 movie.

|Two wounded in Maryland school shooting; student gunman dies|
|Tue, 20 Mar 2018 17:42:00 -0400|
A 17-year-old student opened fire at a Maryland high school on Tuesday, in an attack that left two fellow students wounded, then died after a gunfight with an officer stationed there, amid a renewed debate over gun violence in schools. The shooting in St. Mary's County followed last month's Florida high school massacre and came just days ahead of a national march backing stronger gun laws. The gunfire erupted shortly before 8 a.m. (1200 GMT) at Great Mills High School, about 70 miles (110 km) south of Washington, county Sheriff Timothy Cameron said.

|Grown man Ben Carson blames his wife for the $31,000 dining room set|
|Tue, 20 Mar 2018 15:01:42 -0400|
One of the most powerful men in government, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, is terrified of desks. Carson disclosed his highly un-understandable anxiety in a House Appropriations Committee hearing on Tuesday. The Secretary was asked to speak about the $31,000 dining set he recently tried to purchase for his office. Carson then used the opportunity to pass the buck. First, he blamed formidable desks. Then, he blamed his wife, who... does not serve in government. SEE ALSO: Donald Trump's 'pee tape' controversy, explained Here's Carson's version of events: "People were being stuck by nails, a chair had collapsed with somebody sitting in it," Carson told the committee. I'm not sure why Carson's HUD Secretary office sounds like it was firebombed in Afghanistan, but either way, Carson decided to go along with a renovation. He allegedly put his wife Candy in charge: "I left it with my wife," Carson said. "The next thing that I, quite frankly, heard about it was that this $31,000 table had been bought." I also drew Ben Carson pic.twitter.com/StpNZji7b1 — Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) March 19, 2018 How do we know Ben Carson is not only incompetent but a bad person? Because he just publicly threw his wife under the bus. Have some spine @SecretaryCarson and take responsibility. You are the head of a major federal agency. Act like it. https://t.co/RuW0WFjGi4 — Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) March 20, 2018 Carson says he immediately rescinded the order for the table only after he heard about it from news headlines. He said it was on the grounds that he couldn't justify such a lavish purchase as he prepared massive budget cutbacks to his agency. HUD spokespeople initially denied that Carson and his wife had anything to do with the table's purchase, though later internal emails revealed that Candy was actively involved in the purchase. Whoops. The story has eerie parallels to Candy's account of her son's birth. In her book, A Doctor in the House, Candy details how Ben, hands full of placenta, forced her to go downstairs to find something to cut off her own umbilical cord. HUD Secretary Ben Carson, always throwing his wife under the bus. It should be noted that Ben could've found a perfectly adequate dining room set from West Elm, or even CB2. We're not asking him to go all the way down to IKEA. The Price is Not Right, Ben. Neither is blaming your wife for your department's decisions.

A white man suspected of carrying out a series of deadly parcel bombings in the Texas state capital Austin blew himself up early Wednesday as police closed in -- easing tensions in a city that has been on edge for weeks. Police surrounded the man -- identified by US media as Mark Anthony Conditt -- outside a hotel in the suburbs of Austin, where two people were killed and several others injured in the bombings that began on March 2. The suspect detonated a device in his car and later died, Austin police chief Brian Manley told an early morning news conference after the dramatic end to the massive manhunt involving hundreds of federal agents and local police.

|300,000 Troops Will Soon Train for War With North Korea (But There's A Big Catch)|

Washington and Seoul have announced that their annual joint military drills will commence from April 1, while a massive diplomat effort is underway to lay the foundations for two summits designed to resolve issues on the troubled peninsula. The military drills, involving over 300,000 troops, were delayed because of the 2018 Winter Olympiad, which finished when the Paralympics concluded on March 18. An intensive inter-Korean dialog on the sidelines of the Games resulted in plans for an inter-Korean summit and – according to a South Korean delegation which went to Pyongyang – a promise from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to suspend nuclear and missile tests and to convene a summit with US President Donald Trump.
