    Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has called off the curfew in Ferguson, Missouri (not that police waited to fire upon demonstrators last night anyway).

  • Hillary Clinton is heading to Iowa for the first time since 2008, which I'm sure means nothing at all.

  • Ukraine representatives claim dozens of civilians were killed in an attack by rebel forces on a convoy of refugees. A rebel chief says no such attack happened. Journalists aren't able to figure out what actually happened because of the danger.
  • An Ohio morgue attendant has admitted to having sex with the corpses of at least 100 women over the course of two decades.
  • Republican candidates are attempting to take control of the debate surrounding women's access to birth control by arguing for over-the-counter access without a prescription.
