An Amtrak train abruptly overturned in Philadelphia, killing at least five people and injuring dozens of others, some of whom had to scramble through the windows of toppled cars to escape. The accident has closed the nation’s busiest rail corridor between New York and Washington as federal investigators begin sifting through the mangled remains to determine what went wrong.

John Hinckley Jr. is on the verge of doing what no one else ever has: Shooting an American president and eventually walking free. The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981 in a bizarre attempt to impress actress Jodie Foster is one step closer to being released from St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, D.C. Even prosecutors have given up hope of keeping the 59-year-old confined and are focused on beefing up his travel restrictions.

The NFL came down hard on its biggest star and its championship team, telling Tom Brady and the Patriots that no one is allowed to mess with the rules of the game. The league suspended the Super Bowl MVP Monday for the first four games of the season, fined the New England Patriots $1 million and took away two draft picks as punishment for deflating footballs used in the AFC title game. Brady’s agent called the NFL’s decision ludicrous, but when you figure agents get, what 10%… Brady set to make $7 million in 2015…. well, who can blame him to aggressively defending his client. There should be more reaction by morning. Still no word from Brady himself.
