  • Charles Manson, one of the most notorious killers of the 20th century, died Sunday in a California hospital. He was 83, and spent much of his life behind bars following the 1969 murders of actress Sharon Tate and six others. The Washington Post reports that Manson had been serving a life sentence at the California State Prison in Corcoran and was hospitalized last January for gastrointestinal bleeding.

  • The woman who accused Alabama GOP senate candidate Roy Moore of sexually abusing her when she was 14-years-old appeared on NBC's Today Show this morning, saying she "didn't deserve to have a 32-year-old man prey upon me." Leigh Corfman, now 53, said she was  simply a "14-year-old child playing in an adult's world" when Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her.


  • Boise Police are investigating a fatal crash near Ustick and Five Mile roads Sunday afternoon. Investigators say a female driver was traveling northbound on Five Mile when she crashed her vehicle into a traffic light pole and a block retailing wall near Ustick. Police said the driver was dead at the scene. No word yet on her identity and the investigation is ongoing.
  • Batman, Wonder Woman and their super friends had a not-so-super weekend. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Justice League posted the lowest domestic opening of any DC superhero movie since the 2011 flop Green Lantern. THR said Justice League opened domestically "to a sobering $94 million over the weekend." Considering that the film cost more than $400 million to produce and market, it will be a tough slog to recoup the costs.

  • The Food Network is out with its traditional first aid kit for what it calls "Thanksgiving fails." For example, if you encounter dry turkey meat, have some warmed turkey or chicken stock handy to spritz on the platter. Dry stuffing? Combine melted butter and turkey or chicken broth in a bowl and baste over the dressing. Soggy stuffing? Spread it out on a baking sheet and stick it in the oven. Gluey mashed potatoes? Mix the potatoes with some grated cheddar and a egg and serve up cheesy mashed potato cups. Lumpy mashed potatoes? Add a bit of milk or cream and cook over a low heat.
