"A man’s handgun went off while he was holding it as he got into his truck in the parking lot of a western Pennsylvania gun store Saturday, and the shot killed his 7-year-old son, authorities said.
Joseph V. Loughrey, 44, of Sharpsville,[in pic] was getting into the truck when the 9 mm handgun discharged, wounding Craig Allen Loughrey in the chest, according to state police. The boy died at the scene at Twigs Reloading Den in East Lackawannock Township, 60 miles north of Pittsburgh.
Investigators said Loughrey told them he didn’t realize there was a bullet still in the chamber. “This happens all too often where people think the gun was empty,” Lt. Eric Hermick told The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review." [Source]

Before the fight, Romney met Pacquiao in the fighter's dressing room at the MGM Grand, according to the New York Times, which described the "surreal" exchange:
In came Mitt Romney. Yes, that Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and the presidential runner-up, every hair on his head in place. Romney, in fact, came in twice. His introduction was at once awkward and hilarious.Pacquiao then followed suit.
"Hi, Manny," he said. "I'm Mitt Romney. I ran for president. I lost."
"I got hit by a punch I didn't see," he said." [Source]
Now the people of the Philippines know how the republicans in this country feel:
