Joan Rivers jettisoned comedy for politics ... unleashing an impassioned defense of Israel that included an awesome New York/New Jersey analogy. 

Rivers was at LAX Thursday afternoon when our photog mentioned Israel and Palestine ... and that's all she wrote.  

You gotta see it. It comes from the heart and the gut.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo talks tough, but is very sensitive to criticism, fighting with critics on Twitter and elsewhere. In an interview with Rep. Mike Rogers from the scene of the wreckage in the Ukraine, Cuomo asked if Rogers could “shoot down” the notion that Ukrainian forces had shot down the Malaysian airliner. Even though Cuomo said “excuse the pun,” Jon Stewart of the “Daily Show” mocked it Monday night as a “Moment of Zen.”

It was only about ten seconds of video as the credits rolled -- no real comedic commentary -- but when Washington Post media blogger
Erik Wemple asked Cuomo about it, he unleashed on snarky Stewart (video below):

Some 60,000 IDF reservists have been called up to serve in Operation Protective Edge so far. Many are parents leaving families behind at home – but not all are fathers.

According to the IDF Spokesman who would not release exact figures, the thousands of women currently serving in reserves are a higher percentage than in any previous IDF operation. They serve in a variety of capacities, but especially in combat support in the Home Front Command, Intelligence, the Air Force and field operations.

While it is never easy for anyone to drop everything and leave home, receiving a “tzav 8,” an emergency call to service, poses unique challenges to the currently active female reservists, among them pregnant women and mothers.

A convicted murderer in Arizona gasped and snorted for more than 90 minutes after a lethal injection Wednesday, his attorneys and witnesses said, dying in a botched execution that prompted the governor to order an investigation and the state Supreme Court to mandate that the materials used in the procedure be preserved.

Joseph Rudolph Wood III's execution almost certainly will reinvigorate the national debate over the death penalty. He received an injection at 1:52 p.m. at the Arizona State Prison Complex in Florence. The execution became so prolonged that reporters witnessing the execution counted several hundred of his wheezes before he was finally declared dead at 3:49 p.m. — nearly two hours after the procedure began.

Two women were convicted Thursday afternoon of kicking a 23-year-old newlywed to death during a chaotic and violent brawl outside a trendy Santa Ana nightclub.

Vanese Zavala and Candace Brito were both convicted of felony manslaughter but acquitted on far more serious second-degree murder charges.

Several jurors cried openly as the verdicts were read.

Kids say the darndest things, but one local inquisitive 4-year-old boy asked a question that got him banned from a Monroe doughnut shop.

"We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘he's not allowed in here, he's rude'," said Rebecca Denham as she described her experience at the Doughnut Inn on Tuesday morning.

Denham said her son, Justin Otero, asked a woman at the doughnut shop if she had a baby in her belly.

When the woman said ‘No' Otero apologized, and his mother said she was mortified.

Long Beach man who shot and killed a woman who he said was pregnant also claims she and her accomplice had stolen from him before.

Tom Greer, 80, told KNBC in an interview that he acted in self-defense Tuesday night and that the pair were the same people who’d twice burglarized his home before.

“They’ve been here twice so they know the routine,” he told KNBC in an interview Wednesday.

President Obama's motorcade, never popular in traffic-choked L.A., is generating new attention after it appeared to delay a pregnant woman in labor from getting across the street to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon.

KNBC-TV captured the scene on video, including one clip that showed the woman sitting on a bus bench with the street in front of her closed.

KNBC interviewed a Los Angeles Police Department officer who said that as soon as the motorcade went through, an ambulance would be brought in for the woman.

Millennials like Hillary Clinton, according to the latest Reason-Rupe poll of millennials. Among likely millennial voters, 53 percent plan to vote for her if she runs for president in 2016.[1] Even though they see themselves as closer to Republican Gov. Chris Christie on economics, they perceive to be closer to Clinton on social issues. Ultimately they are planning to vote for Clinton. There is also reason to believe that social issues are largely driving the wedge between young people and Republicans.

Part of Clinton’s popularly is undoubtedly related to her heightened name recognition. But most of the Democratic candidates asked about in the survey receive more “yes” votes than votes against them. Vice President Joe Biden comes in second with 30 percent and Elizabeth Warren with 22 percent. (Survey respondents could select more than one candidate).
