WASHINGTON — In a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled by a 5-to-4 vote on Friday that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.
“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the historic decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.” NYT Read More>>>>> Actual White Rainbow House

A Montana man shot and killed his wife and three children, set a fire in the family's remote cabin and then killed himself, officials in Anaconda-Deer Lodge County said.
The shootings happened Sunday morning at a cabin in the forest about 15 miles southeast of the town of Deer Lodge, Police Chief Tim Barkell said.
Barkell was withholding the names of the victims and the shooter until other relatives could be notified.
Coroner Jerry Thomas said on Monday that the children's ages were 5, 4 and 1. The mother was 37, and the father was 59.
The shooter called a friend in Deer Lodge at about 10 a.m. Sunday to say he was going to kill his family and himself, Barkell said. The friend called 911.
'It appears he (the shooter) set the house on fire before killing himself,' Barkell told The Montana Standard. 'We could not enter because of the smoke and the heat inside. We had to wait for the fire departments.'
The fire was contained within the cabin, he said. Daily M…

Rose May, 15, and Triston Kindle, 16, jumped into the river in Tyler County on Saturday but were forced to turn back when they realized the would not make it.

FLINT, MI (WNEM) -
It was a peaceful afternoon, and then residents said it seemingly turned hostile.
"I was standing there, and all of a sudden, boom!" Jean Glenn said.
"I mean it was loud, it blew up the whole sky or whatever, it was like four or five big bangs," Annette Humphrey said.
Explosions you'd expect in a war zone echoed through Flint. People's homes shook and those inside were caught off-guard. It all went down Tuesday at the shuttered Lowell Junior High on the city's east side.
The blasts were part of an Army exercise.
"There's older people, it probably gave them a heart attack or something," Glenn said.
Flint's spokesman Jason Lorenz said the city has been in talks with the Army for six months now about using parts of the city. This is part of a joint exercise being carried out across the United States.Read More>>>>
