      I haven’t forgotten. I wasn’t a Hillary fan prior to 2008, but her “explicitly racist” campaign against PBO kind of sealed the deal. I like Bill even less.

    Preview: How Will It All End?

    What’s the best way to get ready for Downton Abbey’s last-ever episode? Fans should have a handkerchief on hand during the series finale, writer/creator Julian Fellowes tells the MASTERPIECE Studio podcast. “But on the whole, I would open a bottle of champagne and just sit back and enjoy it.”

    So, which is it to be: tears or triumph? The answer, we suspect, depends on the resolution to the questions below. Will any or all of our Downton Abbey wishes come true? Check out the various end-of-Downton scenarios, then share your own questions and hopes for Downton’s ending.

    Iran election: Reformists win all 30 Tehran seats.

    Allies of Iran’s reformist President Hassan Rouhani have won a landslide victory in Tehran, in the first parliamentary vote since Iran signed a nuclear deal with world powers.

    With 90% of the votes counted, the pro-Rouhani List of Hope is set to take all 30 parliamentary seats in the capital.

    The leading conservative candidate Gholamali Haddad-Adel is in 31st place.

    ///

    The results are a huge setback for hardliners. Two of the most prominent amongst them have lost their seats, and a third is hovering right at the bottom, in danger of being eliminated.

    The biggest shock is the poor showing for Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi, the current chairman of the Assembly. He replaced former President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani when he was forced to relinquish the role. The irony is that Mr Rafsanjani is now leading the polls in Tehran.

    The top ideologue of the hardliners, Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi has also lost his seat. He is the spiritual guide of a group that includes former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    The parliamentary result in Tehran is significant because lawmakers from the capital usually determine the political direction of the house, analysts say.

    However, reformists look to have done less well in constituencies outside the capital.

    Mr Rouhani said on Saturday that the election gave the government more credibility and clout.

    “The competition is over. It’s time to open a new chapter in Iran’s economic development based on domestic abilities and international opportunities,” the official Irna news agency quoted him as saying.

    “The people showed their power once again and gave more credibility and strength to their elected government.”

    Melissa Harris-Perry: Public Intellectual
    February 28, 2016 • Jessie Daniels • journalism

    I’m more than a little heartbroken at the news today about Melissa Harris-Perry’s departure from MSNBC. Her show is set to record on my DVR each weekend. Mostly on weekends, I’m running errands or sometimes at church or just somewhere else when her show airs but I always – always – watch it later (skipping the commercials, thank you DVR). Harris-Perry’s has become for me a kind of touchstone for Where We Are Now in the nation in terms of race, gender and a range of social justice issues. Melissa Harris-Perry is also a the North Star for what it means to a scholar-activist-journalist in the digital era.

    Victims found in Fort Wayne home killed ‘execution style’

    ORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — The three victims whose bodies were found in a Fort Wayne home this week all died of gunshot wounds, the Allen County Coroner’s Office said early Friday.

    The bodies of Mohamedtaha Omar, 23, Adam K. Mekki, 20, and Muhannad A. Tairab, 17, all of Fort Wayne, were found by police inside a home in the 800 block on East Lewis Street on Wednesday. The coroner’s office said each died of gunshot wounds and ruled their deaths homicides, the second, third and fourth of the year.

    The coroner’s office would not say how many times the victims were shot but Police Chief Garry Hamilton said later Friday that each was shot “multiple” times. Public Safety Director Rusty York said they were shot “execution style.”

    Fort Wayne police were called just after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday to the the white, two-story home between Francis and Harmar streets and found the three dead inside a single ground-level room of the home.

    Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris overwhelmingly wins state Democratic Party endorsement
    Phil Willon\| ontact Reporter
    February 27, 2016

    — Significant: Kamala Harris won the California Democratic Party endorsement for Senate at a state convention last night. It allows the attorney general to solidify her status as the front-runner over rival Loretta Sanchez in the race to succeed the retiring Barbara Boxer. “Harris captured 78.1% of the votes to earn the state Democrats’ official seal of approval,” the Los Angeles Times reports. “It’s a prize that provides her with a clear edge in the June 7 primary and, most likely, financial support from the party.”
