JOSH SHAPIRO. Pennsylvania attorney general says there is evidence the Vatican knew about the predator priest cover-up.
NEW YORK. Cynthia Nixon, Andrew Cuomo battle over room temperature for first and only debate: ‘Ms. Nixon’s team has publicly accused the debate host, WCBS-TV, of catering to all of the governor’s demands to land the debate, and they are concerned that the debate hall at Hofstra University on Long Island might feel like an ice rink when they arrive. (Mr. Cuomo is famous for preferring to make his public appearances in deeply chilled conditions.) So in a pre-emptive strike, Rebecca Katz, a top strategist for Ms. Nixon, asked WCBS-TV in an email last week that the debate hall be warmed to 76 degrees.’
SKETCHY INTERVIEW OF THE DAY. Demi Lovato’s alleged drug dealer. “She texted me at 4 o’clock in the morning, um, because she’s a girl and she wanted to kick it, I mean why else does any other girl text another guy at 4 o’clock in the morning to come over?”

Eight people were detained on Tuesday in connection with her death and five have now been charged with murder as well as robbery, a legal source said, adding that they had been remanded in custody.”
ILLINOIS. Woman who said she was harassed at nursing home for being gay wins in court: “Marsha Wetzel’s federal lawsuit, claiming Glen St. Andrew Living Community in Niles failed to address and prevent alleged acts of harassment and violence against her, was initially dismissed. But on Monday, an appeals court overturned that ruling, finding the operators could be liable for housing discrimination and returning the case to the trial court.”
MISSOURI. State bans meat substitute makers from using the word “meat” in their products: ‘This takes aim at manufacturers of what has been dubbed fake or non-traditional meat. Clean meat — also known as lab-grown meat — is made of cultured animal tissue cells, while plant-based meat is generally from ingredients such as soy, tempeh and seitan. The state law forbids “misrepresenting a product as meat that is not derived from harvested production livestock or poultry.” Violators may be fined $1,000 and imprisoned for a year.’

@sabri.ben.achour may not be fully looking at the camera, but I love this picture because: 1) he’s not scowling for once 2) he’s smirking/even smiling almost and that means he’s either actually tickled or truly happy in this moment standing next to me (probably cause he got to touch my 🍑) 3) he’s one of my all-time favorite weirdo, whack job, neurotic, passionate, crazy smart, worldly, kind, generous, loving, talented psychopaths/best friends who gets my own neuroses and crazy yet still tolerates me 4) he introduced me to the incredible place that is Ptown last year, and here we are a year later making more memories together! 5) it was the only duo pic we took all weekend 😁
