A chilling video showing the execution of journalist James Foley by Islamist militants marks the second time an American reporter has been beheaded by captors overseas, echoing the murder of Wall Street Journal correspondent Daniel Pearl in Pakistan in 2002. While Pearl worked for one of the largest news organizations in the world, Foley was on assignment for GlobalPost, an online news startup with about 28 full-time staffers that is trying to survive as a small, independent outlet. The contrast underscores the changes that have been buffeting the news business, which in recent years has seen big staff reductions and fewer journalistic resources devoted to international coverage, including wars. At least 20 U.S. newspapers that once maintained bureaus abroad, including The Baltimore Sun, Los Angeles Times and The Boston Globe, have closed bureaus and scaled back foreign coverage, according to Pew Research Center.

An osteopathic physician named Keith Ly took the stand at a federal court house in Seattle on Thursday claiming to know nothing. Dr. Ly, who was born in Vietnam and has no criminal history, stands accused of orchestrating what the US Attorney's Office describes as a “an intricate and sophisticated criminal scheme” in his three suburban rental properties.

Though he failed to respond to numerous interview requests, he has emerged from the documents he submitted in his defense as something of a goofy over-achiever. His five-page resume describes stints as a Disney Magic Senior Physician for the company's … [Read more...] about The saddest marijuana story in Washington state
