Why not President Oprah? In Trump era, Democrats hail idea

08 January 2018 23:51:43 WN.com - America News

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Oprah Winfrey’s impassioned call for “a brighter morning even in our darkest nights” at the Golden Globes has Democratic Party activists buzzing about the media superstar and the 2020 presidential race — even if it’s only a fantasy. Even so, for Democrats in early voting states, and perhaps for a public that largely disapproves of President Donald Trump’s job performance, the notion of a popular media figure as a presidential candidate is not as strange as it once seemed, given the New York real estate mogul and reality TV star now in the White House. “Look, it’s ridiculous — and I get that,” said Brad Anderson, Barack...

New Oregon law says motorists can pump their gas _ sometimes

08 January 2018 23:51:43 WN.com - America News

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon law passed nearly seven decades ago banned drivers from pumping their own gas but now that’s changing — in some cases. The new year ushered in some modifications to an aging law that makes Oregon only one of two states in the U.S. that places restrictions on self-service gas. Self-serving motorists in other parts of the U.S. have poked fun at the idea of Oregonians struggling with gas pumps for the first time, but the reality is for many people in the state, not much has changed. Here’s a look at what the original law did, what’s changing and how Oregonians are reacting to this (kind of) brave...
