Rumours spread on WhatsApp have stoked violence and even lynchings in India.
I have an inordinate fondness for trucks. I learned to drive in a 1978 Chevy Suburban and drove an '88 Ford Ranger for years. However, in recent years, my selection of vehicles has been restrained by my wife's insistence on this thing called "practicality"—we are city dwellers, and despite the sometimes post-apocalyptic terrain of Baltimore streets, Paula has resisted the wisdom of driving something huge with a cargo capacity suitable for evacuating survivors.
I wanted a pickup, and she wanted a Subaru. So we compromised. We got a Subaru.
But when the 2019 RAM 1500 Laramie Crew Cab 4x4 arrived for my test drive—$60,190, as tested—I gained an ally in my pickup-truck cause. "This is my dream car... I mean, truck," my 17-year old daughter said as she climbed up into the expansive cab and sat in one of the vented, leather-trimmed front seats.
The FusionHome was expected to be cheaper than its rivals.

Attorneys from 19 states and the District of Columbia will ask a judge to continue an order forbidding the release of 3D-printed gun files on Tuesday morning at 9:00am Pacific Time, in federal court in Seattle.
Strangely, the lawsuit, State of Washington et al. v. United States Department of State et al, seems to ignore the fact that the files are already available on numerous sites, including Github, The Pirate Bay, and more. These files have circulated online since their original publication back in 2013. (Recently, new mirrors of the files have begun to pop up: here's one, and here's another.)
Lawyers representing both the Department of State and Defense Distributed argue that their already-approved legal settlement should go forward, and that DEFCAD should be allowed to re-publish its 10 firearms CAD files.
