|Official: Colorado gunman made 'no more baby parts' comment||Mayfield leads No. 5 Oklahoma past No. 9 Oklahoma St., 58-23 (Yahoo Sports)|
Suspect Robert Lewis Dear apparently referred to Planned Parenthood's health services, which include abortion, and its role in delivering fetal tissue to researchers.
Oklahoma took the Big 12 title and likely a spot in the College Football Playoff - and did at the expense of rival Oklahoma State in a Bedlam blowout. Baker Mayfield threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score and the No. 5 Sooners beat the No. 9 Cowboys 58-23 on Saturday night. ''There's a lot of tension in the air,'' Oklahoma cornerback Jordan Thomas, who intercepted two passes and returned one for a touchdown, said.

The motive for a shooting that took place outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado on Friday still isn’t clear, but all three of the top Democratic presidential candidates quickly rushed to express their support for the organization.
Hogan threw four touchdown passes and drove the 13th-ranked Cardinal to the winning 45-yard field goal by Conrad Ukropina on the last play of a 38-36 victory over No. 4 Notre Dame in a playoff elimination game Saturday night. ''This was the best,'' Hogan said. Stanford did just that.
|Earth is a wilder, warmer place since last climate deal made||Warriors run NBA-record start to 18-0, beat Kings 120-101 (Yahoo Sports)|
PARIS (AP) — This time, it's a hotter, waterier, wilder Earth that world leaders are trying to save.
Stephen Curry scored 19 points in Golden State's NBA-record 18th straight win at the start of a season, but what he didn't do against the Sacramento Kings was just as important to the defending champion Warriors. ''I'm sure Steph doesn't like it,'' Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said. Curry, who scored 17 pf his points in the first quarter, said he understood it made sense for him to sit out the entire fourth period of the blowout with the Warriors about to embark on a two-week, seven-game road trip.
|Colorado governor urges toned-down abortion debate after clinic rampage||LSU says Les Miles to stay; Tigers beat Texas A&M 19-7 (Yahoo Sports)|
By Keith Coffman COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - The attack at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic that killed a police officer and two other people suggests that both sides of the abortion debate in the United States need to "tone down the rhetoric," the state's governor said on Sunday. The governor, John Hickenlooper, spoke the morning after unnamed law enforcement authorities told NBC News and other media that the suspected gunman had muttered "no more baby parts" when he was arrested after an hours-long standoff at the Colorado Springs clinic. Planned Parenthood provides a range of health services for men and women, including abortion.
Les Miles rode across the Tiger Stadium field on the shoulders of his players while fans chanted his name. It would have been quite a send-off, except LSU's administration doesn't want him going anywhere after all. Minutes after LSU closed the regular season with a 19-7 victory over Texas A&M, athletic director Joe Alleva said Miles will remain the coach.
|Police capture suspect in shooting of Pennsylvania officer||Buckeyes beat Michigan 42-13, but lose spot in title game (Yahoo Sports)|
|Police searched six hours for Ray Shetler Jr., 31, who is suspected of shooting St. Clair Township Officer Lloyd Reed at a residence in New Florence, Pennsylvania, on Saturday night, state police said in a statement. Pennsylvania State Police captured Shetler without incident, police said. Reed, who had more than 20 years experience as an officer including five years with the St. Clair Police Department, died from gunshot wounds, police said.|
Ohio State crushed its rival and cruised home, crossing the border and hoping for the best. The eighth-ranked Buckeyes had beaten No. 12 Michigan 42-13. Michigan State may have ended the national champions' quest to repeat by beating the Nittany Lions 55-16 and earning a spot in next week's title game against Iowa.

Why U.S. Engagement Policy Is The Correct One
Invariably, when one thinks of the efficacy of a nation’s military, the mind’s eye is drawn to the ability of that country to deliver a \"warhead onto the forehead\" of their enemies. Indeed, owing to the Pentagon’s slick packaging of the First Gulf War, modern conflict, in the American mind, became synonymous with high-tech toys, grainy videos of successful missile shots, and a quick resolution of hostilities.
Living Wages Are A Global Problem
The recent protests for an increased minimum wage are part of a larger global protest. The purpose is the same for low wage earners all over the world; increase wages to match the cost of living, and allow workers to form unions if desired and needed. The global protest has gained media attention all over the world, but critics claim that is the only accomplishment the movement will have.
Ukraine: Not What It Seems
After tense days of fighting this week, people in Ukraine are mourning the dead and celebrating the removal of President Victor Yanukovych from power. The final struggle that began on February 18, was the bloodiest endured by the protesters of Euromaidan. By February 22 the fighting was over.
In a Five to Four Decision, Voting Just Got Harder
In a five to four decision along party lines, the Supreme Court ruled on the controversial Shelby County v. Holder case. The ruling, believed by many sets the nation back decades in Civil Rights, while others see it as the fault of Congress dropping the ball on updating the act when it should have years ago.
Coup Or Civil War In Egypt
The day after new protests erupted in Egypt the military in a show of support presented an ultimatum to Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood-led government. Morsi was to step down from power and meet all of the demands of the Egyptian people, or face being removed by the military on Wednesday. As the ultimatum deadline draws closer in Egypt, Morsi refuses to leave, insisting that parliamentary elections are needed before he should be removed, and that he doesn't have permission from the United States to remove himself from power. Most recently he stated he will pay with his life to preserve the sanctity of the ballot box.
