The National Guard's arrival may bring order to Ferguson, Mo. It probably won't bring peace. It didn't in Newark and Detroit after race riots in 1967, nor in Los Angeles after the Rodney King verdict in 1992. However necessary, sending in the guard -- as Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon did for Ferguson early Monday -- is usually an admission of failure that becomes as much a part of a community's stigma as the rioting it's designed to stop.
Comedian Stephen Colbert went on a Twitter rant poking fun at Time magazine's somber cover image of himself. Stephen Colbert had some fun teasing himself on Twitter on Thursday and Friday as he joked about his somber photo gracing the new cover of Time magazine. The new Late Show host has spent 23 hours mocking himself, calling the cover "hilarious" and saying he thinks the full name of the magazine is "The Ravages of Time." He even suggested using the cover as a "scary drifter mask" for a Halloween costume.

Following the report Bruce Willis was forced to leave the production of Woody Allen’s next pic, Allen has moved quickly to find his replacement as sources tell Variety that Steve Carell will replace Willis in the pic. Carell joins Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Paul Schneider in the cast, with Allen writing and directing. The film is currently untitled and without distribution.

In a speech to its annual summer meeting, Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley laid into the Democratic National Committee. O'Malley accused the DNC of rigging the primary process in favor of Hillary Clinton. His presidential rival Bernie Sanders reportedly told journalists that he agreed with O’Malley that the primary process was rigged. Parts of his speech demanding debates among Democratic hopefuls received standing ovations from the crowd. After he spoke, there was frost in the air between O’Malley and DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz as the governor left the podium, which led many on Twitter to believe that she snubbed him. In fact, they did shake hands – but with visible enmity.
After six days of evidence heard from 16 witnesses in the St. Paul’s School rape trial, the jury has acquitted 19-year-old Owen Labrie of three felony charges of sexually assaulting a now 16-year-old fellow former student at the New Hampshire prep school. The jury, comprised of nine men and three women, deliberated for eight hours before arriving at a verdict, which found Labrie guilty on three misdemeanor counts of sexual assault. He was also convicted of endangering a child, a misdemeanor, and a felony charge of using a computer to entice a minor. The prosecution said Labrie would be forced to register as a Level II sex offender for life because of the computer charge, which also carries a prison sentence of up to seven years. He faces an additional four years behind bars for the misdemeanor charges.
