(Photo courtesy of Michelle Cruz) The noise startled Janelle Cruz and her friend enough to warrant a look out the window, but they didn’t see anything suspicious when they peered into the darkness. It was probably a cat, they thought. A few minutes later, they heard a noise from the garage, family members told The Washington Post. It sounded like a door closing or perhaps an outside … [Read more...] about The final hours of the Golden State Killer’s final victim

Since it was recently unveiled, a painting of Michelle Obama that hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., has provoked much discussion. Commentators have pointed out notable features of artist Amy Sherald's figure: the former first lady's dress, her skin color, and even her nails. But they missed the most remarkable detail of Obama's portrait: her uncovered arms. This is not the first portrait of Obama without sleeves. Her official photographic portrait, released in 2009 and set in the White House's oval-shaped Blue Room where she is framed by a window facing the South Portico, pictures her posed with her left hand resting on a lily-and-tulip-laden marble table.
