Hard Factor 11/12: California Bar Shooting and Wildfires, El Chapo Trial, and Uganda in the Soft Corner

US-FIRE-WEATHER

California had a terrible weekend with enormous wildfires raging in the north and south of the state, and a deadly shooting in a bar late last week. El Chapo’s trial is set to begin in New York, and he has “promised” not to kill any of the jurors. Uganda is cracking down on their zero tolerance policies for pornography, and that lands them smack dab in the middle of the SOFT CORNER; and other headlines, including Florida election recount, CNN vs. the White House over Jim Acosta, Babe Ruth and Elvis Presley get the Medal of Freedom, and Pete Davidson makes up with Dan Crenshaw.
