North Korean Leader Removed From Power, Citizen-Led Coup Installed

Pak Pong Ju, the newly-installed leader of North Korea, has reportedly been captured and forcefully removed from power by a citizen-led coup. A statement issued by the group, which has been protesting the Atlasian-backed government since its installation several weeks ago, stated that "it is time for leadership that cares about the people of Korea. The recent treaty signed by the former Korean leaders shows a spineless surrender. The new Korean government will not sacrifice dedication to its people to appease the Atlasian government." There has not been a single leader named for the new Korean government as of this morning. South Korean leaders report that it is "highly unlikely" the Atlasian-Korean treaty that was signed to end the 2nd Korean War will remain in place.

Spain, Catalonia Agree To Binding Referendum to Decide Catalan Independence

Spain and Catalonia have reportedly agreed to set a binding referendum in January 2018 to decide whether Catalonia may declare its independence. The agreement states that voting for the referendum will be compulsory, and that 2/3 of citizens must approve the referendum in order to give Catalonia independence. The BBC reports that Catalan officials are "concerned" that Spain may tamper the voting in order to stifle their attempts at independence, and have asked Atlasian President fhtagn to ensure that such a thing will not happen.

A special commission will be created to investigate the allegations within the next 24-48 hours, adding that "we will not contribute to a genocide."

Former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick Shot in Illinois

Former San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who divided football fans and became a national figure after his protests of the playing of the National Anthem while he was still with the 49ers, was shot twice during an event in Chicago, Illinois, Lincoln on Thursday. The event revolved around a town-hall style discussion about police and community relations. Roughly 30 minutes into the event, a man stood up and shouted "You're a terrorist! You hate the military!" and brandished a pistol, firing 5 rounds at Kaepernick, striking him twice. The man was subdued instantly and taken into police custody. He has been identified as 40-year old Roger Porter of Kenosha, WI, Lincoln. Kaepernick's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, but he remains hospitalized as a precaution. Another man injured at the scene was treated and released from a local hospital yesterday. Police have charged him with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of possessing a firearm in a space where firearms are banned, and other similar charges. More details should become available within the coming days.

To be fair, I would not be surprised if DW Perry attempted to pursue teen girls. It's just that he probably failed.

He may be the first person who is too ugly to diddle kids.

Saudi Government Believed to Have Executed 100,000 Homosexuals

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has allegedly executed approximately 100,000 people who were believed to be homosexuals. This news coming from Middle Eastern bloggers, some of whom say their own lives are in danger, was picked up by the BBC this weekend. According to one blog post, there are "mass graves [openly visible] in some public places. [...] the Government has made it clear that anyone caught partaking in homosexual behavior [...] shall be publicly executed." There is no concrete verification of the true number of executed Saudis at this time.

Canada Condemns Illegal Immigrant Attack in Atlasia

In a speech this weekend, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denounced the attack by a Canadian citizen on a crowd of Atlasians in Minnesota as "sickening", adding that "Canada offers its fullest condolences and support to the families of those killed and injured, and we hope that the man responsible is brought to justice." The attacker was identified as Paul David Blackburn, 52, of London, Ontario. Authorities say that Blackburn told them he planned to kill "many more Atlasians" because he planned to "die a martyr." He confirmed that his wife's death sent him into a depressive, suicidal rage. He will stand trial sometime next year in Atlasian court.

It depends. I'm inclined to believe that Bernie's window has closed and that the general electorate is not ready to support an avowed Democratic Socialist...even if they don't like Trump. Biden is inoffensive enough to win over disaffected moderates and perhaps even anti-Trump Republicans.

I could envision myself voting for a Republican under some extremely specific circumstances.

If he was in a metal band I wouldn't be shocked at all since tons of metal bands write songs glorifying rape and sexual assault all the time are full of Nazi creeps who burn down churches and commit murder.

You are quite literally the dumbest human being who has ever lived.

Do you see yourself as taking a different view of the job compared to your predecessors?

I definitely am less statistically oriented than my predecessors, but I believe I am more interested in keeping the status quo as far as managing the game. I want to write more interesting storylines, but not at the expense of what makes the game operate fluently.

RIP...I do hear that great players get very good sympathy votes for the Hall of Fame if they had several dominating years and their numbers don't quite get there, and Halladay fits that category.

Maybe this gets him in.

He threw a perfect game and a no-hitter in the same season, led the league in complete games 7 different times, won the Cy Young in both leagues, threw 20 shutouts, had 200 career wins, a career era of 3.38, 2117 strikeouts, a career WAR of 65.6, and was an 8-time all star. How the hell are those not HoF numbers?

Muh 300 wins hot take

Technically it's 250.

He had 2 bad seasons in Philadelphia and played on some really, really bad Blue Jay teams. He could've easily won 250 or 300 games if he pitched for, say, the Yankees or Red Sox instead of the Blue Jays.

Senator, if confirmed do you intend to keep your Senate seat until December?

Yes.



Could you give us a run down of some of the things you plan/expect to be doing as deputy gm?

Helping AZ write storylines, mainly. I'm godawful with numbers, but writing is my forte. I will also work in conjunction with AZ, Kyc, and Enduro to create as efficient a department as we can.



Do you intend to leave your private views aside when making game decisions? For example, if draconian gun control isnt passed, do you intend to orchestrate 50 in-game mass shootings a day until we adopt policies you personally support?

Good question. My personal views will have no influence into my decisions. I cannot imagine a scenario in which doing such a thing would have a positive outcome on the game.
