Updated 11:28 am PDT, Friday, August 2, 2019 Mary and Roland Duty share a laugh near the front door of their pizza business in Waco, Texas, Thursday, Aug. 1, 2019. The Dutys are celebrating 50 years in business operating Poppa Rollo's Pizza, a rambling joint on Valley Mills Drive replete with "Laurel and Hardy" and "Three Stooges" clips on the big screen, laughter, casual chatter and memories.

Breana Noble The Detroit News Published 9:55 PM EST Jan 1, 2019 Detroit — The homicide tally in Michigan's largest city has dropped for the second consecutive year with 261 deaths in 2018, Detroit Police Chief James Craig confirmed Tuesday. If it holds up under review, the number would be the lowest on record in more than 50 years; in 1966, there were 214 homicides. That, however, was at a time when Detroit had a population of more than 1.5 million people — a rate of about 14 homicides per 100,000 residents. The 261 homicides in 2018, compared to Detroit's most recent estimated population of about 673,000 as of July, is a rate of about 39 per 100,000 residents. "I wish they were going down more," Craig said. "I'm not flying the flag of success yet." Craig, in an interview with The Detroit News on Tuesday, said he's happy that homicides have "continually trended down." "We still per capita have more incidents, but we're moving in the … [Read more...] about Detroit homicides fall for second consecutive year in 2018
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Dave Barry December 30, 2018 We can summarize 2018 in two words: It boofed. We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes. You might ask, … [Read more...] about Dave Barry’s year in review: Good riddance to 2018!
