Should Drug Dealers Be Charged With Murder After Overdoses?

Ty Hernandez was mending a broken heart when he felt a cold coming on. His mom, Peggy, did the mom thing. “You’ve got to rest and drink fluids.” she said. “The next morning, I left a note on the counter with some chicken noodle soup and said, ‘I hope you feel better. Call me if you need anything.’ And I went to work.”

High above the Miami sky, two pigeons are falling in love.

And on the ground, Mario “Mayito” Lopez is beaming.

This is what he has trained his prized pigeon, El Bastardo, to do: elegantly seduce lady birds and bring them back to roost.

With a plump neck and iridescent green and purple feathers, El Bastardo is a champion in the local world of pigeon breeding. It’s a world Lopez has been infatuated with since he was a boy in Cuba, where raising, breeding and training birds to woo one another is a way of life.

In some Florida schools, it’s called SCSI.

Marcus Pryor, a junior at Miami Northwestern Senior High, thinks it stands for School Criminal Scene Investigation.
