No one outside of San Quentin State Prison will be seeing Scott Peterson in person anytime soon as officials consider if he should face a new trial in the headline-grabbing slayings of his pregnant wife and unborn child, a California judge decided Friday. San Francisco Superior Court Judge Anne-Christine Massullo had been concerned that Peterson, 48, would have difficulty staying in touch with his defense attorneys from the prison, where he's been housed since he was sentenced to death in 2005, and was considering moving him to a jail about an hour's drive south. Massullo is weighing whether Peterson should get a new trial and whether he should again face execution after the state...

The Senate Republicans who have not conceded publicly that President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 election argue that President Trump has the right to challenge the results in court, or point out that the vote totals haven't been certified yet, or admit they need his voters to show up in Georgia's special Senate elections, or privately acknowledged that they would pay a political price for not humoring Trump's baseless fraud claims. Some say it's best to let the courts swat down the fraud allegations so people who voted for Trump will feel assured the system worked.But this reason for letting "process run its course" posted by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) on Thursday is new.>...

On Tuesday night, Fox News' No. 2 Trump bootlicker Laura Ingraham, whose own brother thinks she is "a monster," conducted an incredibly suspect interview with an anonymous woman claiming to be a poll worker in Clark County, Nevada.

"And as I got closer, the envelopes were being torn open. There were two men-two people dropping the envelopes, and two people ripping them open, and turning and facing the van,...

President Trump's critics were quick with the sarcasm after Ivanka Trump proudly tweeted about her father's electoral victory in Alaska, which was projected by news outlets, including The Associated Press, on Wednesday.> I'm deeply confused, since this is a projection by the AP and not a certified final count. It's almost as if "the media can't call elections" is a new standard invented in bad faith to prolong an election dispute by a few more days. https://t.co/RI6tWNtfir> > - Benjy Sarlin (@BenjySarlin) November 11, 2020> Uh oh - we've got another person relying on THE MEDIA, and not the vote certification, to decide who won an election. https://t.co/yEnfH3llJf>...
Republicans will have at least 50 seats in the Senate next year after a re-election victory by Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska).Sullivan was projected on Wednesday to win his re-election bid by NBC News and CNN. The victory by Sullivan over independent candidate Al Gross had been expected for days, but it took some additional time for races to be called in Alaska because the state didn't release absentee ballot results until Nov. 10, The Associated Press explains.As a result of Sullivan's win, Republicans will have 50 seats in the Senate, while Democrats have 48, The Washington Post notes. Control of the Senate will therefore come down to Georgia, where two Senate races are headed for runoffs...

When campaigners unveiled a sculpture in honour of Mary Wollstonecraft, they expressed hope that it would "start a conversation". Unfortunately, the conversation revolved around why the sculptor, Maggi Hambling, had chosen to represent the "mother of feminism" as what one critic described as looking "like someone stuck a Barbie doll on top of a kebab". To the horror of academics, Hambling produced a naked "Everywoman" with a model's physique, standing atop a silvery mass. It prompted many to ask why famous men are never commemorated without their clothes. "Who on earth saw the design for this and thought, 'Yes, the woman who wrote The Vindication of the Rights of Woman would love this'?"...

Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma is eligible to sign a rookie extension this summer. Kuzma's representatives, as they should, are looking for a sizable deal for their client, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

It wouldn't be in L.A.'s best interest to sign Kuz to a big-time extension. At least not this offseason
NBA teams believe the Rockets could make All-Star guard Russell Westbrook available in trades this offseason, per Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer. O'Connor went on to identify the Knicks and Clippers as teams who could have interest.

Phil Mickelson no longer comes to Augusta thinking about winning the Masters and would be happy just to be in contention for another Green Jacket, the three-times champion said on Tuesday. Splitting his time between the PGA and Champions Tours and a decade removed from his last Green Jacket, Mickelson spent as much time during his pre-Masters news conference reliving past glories and speculating about the future as discussing the present. Playing in his 28th Masters there is certainly plenty to reflect on for the 50-year-old fan favourite, who also took a moment to ponder the idea of one day taking over the ceremonial starter role with long time rival Tiger Woods from Jack Nicklaus and...

If Rory McIlroy is fairly confident of one day winning the Masters and completing the career grand slam, he has also been around the block often enough to know that nothing is guaranteed in golf or much else for that matter. McIlroy is all too aware that Greg Norman and Ernie Els, among others, never took the final step to a Green Jacket for all the times they contended at Augusta National. Nine long years have passed since McIlroy frittered away a four-shot final round lead at the tournament and he has competed in five Masters since first being afforded the chance to complete the career grand slam here.
