One man was killed and another injured when the two fell out of a bathroom window of a tour bus in Massachusetts that was coming from a brewery in New Hampshire, Massachusetts State Police said Sunday.
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Jurors in the trial of a former police chief watched video Thursday of an 8-year-old boy accidentally shooting himself to death with an Uzi submachine gun at a 2008 gun fair, a sight that prompted a collective gasp in the courtroom.

Riding around Massachusetts in his pickup truck, Scott Brown hit a home run when he insisted: “This is not a Kennedy seat or a Democratic seat. It’s the people’s seat.” For a while, I thought Thomas Jefferson’s prophecy might be coming true:
“Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government. ... Whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, the people, if well informed, may be relied on to set them to rights.”

In his first comment following Scott Brown’s stunning victory in the Massachusetts special election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, President Barack Obama told the losing candidate, Martha Coakley, “you can’t win them all.” No, but President Obama hasn’t won any since his own election more than 15 months ago (not counting the Nobel Peace Prize, which was an unearned gift). Three candidates he campaigned for in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts lost, and his personal appeal for Chicago to host the Olympics in 2016 was rejected. That’s 0-4. If he were a quarterback, the coach would be eyeing the backup right about now.
