Indianapolis 500 Winner Dan Wheldon Dies After Massive Crash

Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after his car became ensnarled in a fiery 15-car pileup on Lap 13, flew over another vehicle and landed in a catch fence just outside turn 2.

The 33-year-old British racer was a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner, including this year’s race.

Three other drivers, including championship contender Will Power, were hurt in the pileup.

Weldon was airlifted from the track to University Medical Center; about two hours later, his colleagues were told of his death.

FILE – In this Sept. 27, 2011, file photo, Dan Wheldon talks about the 2012 IndyCar vehicle, at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indianapolis, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011.

“IndyCar is very sad to announce that Dan Wheldon has passed away from unsurvivable injuries,” IndyCar CEO Randy Bernard said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family today. IndyCar, its drivers and owners, have decided to end the race.”

In his honor, drivers took part in a five-lap salute around the oval.

IndyCar has not had a fatality since Paul Dana was killed at Homestead in 2006. He died after a crash in a morning warmup.

Sunday’s wreck left Townsend Bell upside down while smoldering cars and debris littered the track nearly halfway up the straightaway of the 1.5-mile oval.

The track was red-flagged following the accidents while crews worked on fences and removed smashed cars.

Wheldon started in the back of the pack but quickly worked his way through the 34-car field before the wreck.

“It was like a movie scene which they try to make as gnarly as possible,” said Danica Patrick, making her final IndyCar start. “It was debris everywhere across the whole track, you could smell the smoke, you could see the billowing smoke on the back straight from the car. There was a chunk of fire that we were driving around. You could see cars scattered.

Ground Zero Mega-Mosque Developers May Be Facing Eviction

Recently, the infamous Ground Zero mosque in lower Manhattan, New York City, opened its doors to the community. While it seemed as though the controversial house of worship was steadily beginning to work toward its lofty goal of creating a massive, 10-story community center, a major dispute over back rent may lead to eviction.

According to reports, the mosque’s developers purportedly owe a large sum of money in back rent. Con Edison, the primary company that provides electricity to New York City and its surrounding localities, is giving the developers an ultimatum: Either pay the $1.7 million they owe in back rent or their lease will be terminated and the property will be seized.

Bachmann, Trump to host ‘tele-townhall’

GOP presidential contender Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) will participate in a “tele-townhall” with New York businessman Donald Trump on Monday.

“This is an incredible opportunity for you and everyone from Team Bachmann to hear from a businessman who knows firsthand that Barack Obama’s failed policies are crippling our nation’s job creators,” said Bachmann in an email to supporters.

“Donald Trump and I will discuss the state of the race, along with the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead,” she added.

During the tele-townhall scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on Oct. 17, Bachmann and Trump will answer questions from the audience.

Trump considered entering the GOP race earlier in the year and has yet to close the door on a possible presidential bid.

GOP candidates have traveled to New York to meet with the business mogul to seek his advice and possible endorsement.

Wanted by U.S.: Bonafide heroes

Maybe the subject of heroism is on my mind because I watched the movie Captain America over the weekend, but more likely it is because of the case of Rayon McIntosh, Jr.

McIntosh is (make that was—he’s since been fired) a cashier at a McDonald’s in Greenwich Village, where two women handed him what looked like a phony $50 bill last Friday. An altercation that ensued quickly turned obscene, then violent.

A video of the incident shows one of the women slapping McIntosh. Seconds later the other woman jumped the counter while the first walked around to where the cash was kept.

McIntosh swung into action—literally. Grabbing hold of a metal rod he kept in the back of the store, he began whaling on the two women. One ended up with a fractured skull and a broken arm. The other was treated for a deep laceration.

All three combatants were arrested. The women were charged with menacing, disorderly conduct, and trespassing. McIntosh received two counts of felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. It may be irrelevant, but McIntosh did a “dime” at Sing Sing for shooting a high school classmate to death in 2000.

So who’s the hero in this tale of bunko bungling and urban unrest? That would be McIntosh, who according to the New York Post has become a “McHero” among the social network set. The Post reports that a Rayon McIntosh Defense Fund has been set up on Facebook and that other cyber-support pages have followed suit.

Herman Cain admits ‘some people will pay more’ under 9-9-9

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain admitted Sunday that “some people” would pay more in taxes every year under his “9-9-9” tax reform plan.

“That’s right. Some people will pay more,” Cain told David Gregory of NBC’s Meet the Press. “But most people will pay less, that’s my argument.”

Cain’s plan throws out the current tax system by establishing a 9 percent corporate tax, a 9 percent income tax and a new 9 percent national sales tax. During a lengthy discussion with Gregory, Cain defended his plan from critics who say the plan will make lower income earners pay more.

Asked by Gregory who will pay more, Cain said, “The people who spend more money on new goods. The sales tax only applies to people who buy new goods, not used goods. That’s a big difference that doesn’t come out.”

Cain took issue though with Gregory saying “the reality of this plan: the wealthiest Americans would pay less, the poorest Americans and middle class would pay more.”

“I do dispute that,” Cain said. “You and others are making assumptions about what wealthy Americans will do with their money and you’re making assumptions about…the middle class and the poor. You can’t predict their behavior.”

“More people will pay less in taxes,” he said.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Warns U.S. of ‘Resolute Response’ Over Assassination Claims

Iran’s supreme leader warned the United States on Sunday that any measures taken against Tehran over an alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington would elicit a “resolute” response.

Two men, including a member of Iran’s special foreign actions unit known as the Quds Force, have been charged in New York federal court with conspiring to kill the Saudi diplomat, Adel Al-Jubeir. U.S. officials have said no one was ever in any immediate danger from the plot.

“If U.S. officials have some delusions, (they must) know that any unsuitable act, whether political or security, will meet a resolute response from the Iranian nation,” state TV quoted Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as saying.
