A Letter to Commissioner King and the New York State Education Department:

I have played your game for the past two years. As an educator, I have created my teaching portfolio with enough evidence so I can prove that I am doing my job over the course of the school year. I am testing my students on material that they haven't yet learned in September, and then re-testing them midway through the year, and then again at the end of the year to track and show their growth.

Starting in July, new mothers in Tennessee may be held criminally responsible for a baby's birth defects if the problems arise from drug use during pregnancy.

Specifically, the law says that a woman "may be prosecuted for assault for the illegal use of a narcotic drug while pregnant, if her child is born addicted to or harmed by the narcotic drug." Penalties include up to 15 years in prison. Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam (R) approved the law in April, calling it a "tool to address illicit drug use among pregnant women through treatment programs." The law does allow mothers to avoid criminal charges by signing up for and sticking with a state-run drug treatment program.

A small insurance company in California has a thing or two to learn about customer service. Adriana's Insurance Service settled a lawsuit over an employee assaulting an elderly man... and delivered his compensation in buckets full of coins.

Andres Carrasco filed a lawsuit against the company in 2012, claiming he was physically assaulted by an Adriana's Insurance Service employee. The business agreed to settle in June. When it came time for Adriana's to pay up the $21,000 they owed him, however, they didn't just cut a check. Employees ‒ eight of them ‒ arrived at Carrasco's lawyer's office in a van, and proceeded to deliver five-gallon bucket after five-gallon bucket filled with change before leaving. "There's over 16 buckets of quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies. It's going to take us at least, conservatively, one week to count that whole amount of money," attorney Antonio Gallo told KCBS. Carrasco, who is 73, just had a hernia operation, and is unable to lift any of the buckets, Gallo said to KNBC. "It's too heavy," the recipient said to KCBS.

13 illegal immigrants and two Americans were taken into custody by Border Patrol agents at the Campo Border Patrol Westbound I-8 checkpoint in California.

With the surge of law enforcement and National Guard troops to America's southern border, the Rio Grande Valley region is becoming increasingly difficult for Mexico's criminal cartels to penetrate. Immigrants who see men armed with automatic weapons and dressed in combat fatigues, like the Texas game wardens currently patrolling the border, may also suddenly become motivated to seek access to the United States elsewhere.

Leaders of two police unions had some strong words Tuesday over what they are calling anti-police rhetoric in the wake of the death of Eric Garner last month.

After watching this press conference one is left wondering, are these cops or is this central casting for the next mafioso blockbuster?

Sheer insanity. This isn't some raving drunk off the street. This is the president of one of the largest teachers unions in the United States - a nation which is slowly turning against the disastrous "Common Core" system of Federally-imposed standards.

Michael Mulgrew, president of New York's United Federation of Teachers, unloaded a hateful rant against critics of the Common Core Standards Initiative. "If someone takes something from me, I'm going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine!" Mulgrew bellowed clownishly. "You do not take what is mine!" The union boss also challenged opponents of Common Core and union control over education to a fist fight.

In some respects, the recent admission by CIA Director John Brennan that his agents and his lawyers have been spying on the senators whose job it is to monitor the agency should come as no surprise.

The agency's job is to steal and keep secrets, and implicit in those tasks, Brennan would no doubt argue, is lying. Yet in another respect, this may very well be a smoking gun in the now substantial case against President Barack Obama that alleges that much of his official behavior has manifested lawlessness and incompetence. It is hard to believe that the president did not know about this but not hard to believe he would look the other way.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged his government to come up with countermeasures to Western sanctions imposed against Russia over the Ukrainian conflict.

Putin stressed that Moscow's response should be "cautious." "Obviously we need to do it cautiously in order to support domestic manufacturers, but not hurt consumers," he said on Tuesday. The president expects the government to present a response to the sanctions as soon as possible. Putin said that the political tools of pressure being used against the Russian economy are unacceptable, stressing that they go against international rules and norms.

A government website intended to make federal spending more transparent was missing at least $619 billion from 302 federal programs, a government audit has found.

And the data that does exist is wildly inaccurate, according to the Government Accountability Office, which looked at 2012 spending data. Only 2% to 7% of spending data on USASpending.gov is "fully consistent with agencies' records," according to the report. Among the data missing from the 6-year-old federal website...

When you're trying to have a conversation with someone you just met, and the conversation is not getting off the ground, what's a good topic or question to bring up to try to get some momentum going? Sometimes I find myself talking to people and simply not knowing what to say next, after the usual small-talk topics have been exhausted.
