[L.A. Times]Catalytic converter thefts continue to climb in Southern California, with one leading to the suspected thief’s death.
An employee at an Anaheim industrial building arrived to work Wednesday about 6:20 a.m. and discovered a man’s legs sticking out from underneath a company car, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Shane Carringer.
Based on the tools with him and his position under the car, first responders concluded he had been trying to detach the catalytic converter from the Toyota Prius, Carringer said.
“It appears he was attempting to steal a catalytic converter off the vehicle when the jack he used failed, and the jack failure caused the car to fall on top of him,” Carringer said.

Remembering Latasha Harlins, who was shot and killed 30 years ago by a store owner in South LAFormer LAPD Commander Michael Bostic talked about it then: “She had the money in her hand. You could see the money on the videotape. And the suspect grabbed the backpack, and there became a physical altercation over the backpack. And as our victim turned to walk away from the scene, the suspect raised a weapon and shot the victim in the back of the head.”
Latasha Harlins would have turned 45 this year on January 1. On that day, a mural featuring her portrait was unveiled. It’s on the front of the Sutton Recreation Center on Hoover Street where she used to hang out.

So, Gov. Ricketts of Neb., do you think the Xians & their Friday Fast, "a Christian practice of abstaining from animal meat, other than fish, as well as alcohol, on Fridays, or holding a fast on Fridays, found most frequently in the Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican and Methodist traditions", are a direct attack on your way of life there in Nebraska, per the AP above?Grant Schulte / Associated Press:Taegan Goddard / Political Wire: Nebraska Declares Pro-Meat Day to Counter Colorado

[Now.]MALDEN, Mo. (AP) — A southeastern Missouri preacher went on leave from his church and is seeking professional counseling after giving a sermon that chastised married women who “let themselves go” and held up former first lady Melania Trump as the pinnacle of feminine beauty.
A video widely circulated on social media shows Pastor Stewart-Allen Clark’s sermon before the 1st General Baptist Church in Malden in the state’s bootheel. The sermon was roundly panned as sexist and counter to Christian teachings.
In the video, Clark berated wives who gained weight after marriage and admonished that they should look good for their husbands, adding, “it’s important that he thinks you’re hot!
“I’m not saying every woman can be the epic — the epic – trophy wife of all time like Melania Trump,” Clark said, as a photo of the former first lady appeared behind him on a screen. “Most women can’t be trophy wives, but you know ... maybe you’re a participation trophy.”
The church’s website said Clark began his leave on March 2 and is seeking professional counseling.
A statement from the General Baptist Council of Associations, with which Clark’s church is affiliated, also condemned Clark’s sermon.
“General Baptists believe that every woman was created in the image of God, and they should be valued for that reason,” the statement said.
