In the past calendar year, six tourists from the United States have died under similar circumstances in the Dominican Republic. The island’s reputation took another hit recently when former Major League Baseball All Star David Ortiz was shot at a nightclub in his hometown of Santo Domingo. Should this be a cause for concern? Here’s what we know so far. What Incidents Have Occurred—and When? Last year, according to The New York Times, two tourists died (in June and July): Yvette Monique Sport, 51, and David Harrison, 45, both of whom died of a heart attack.

The Detroit News Published 11:55 PM EST Dec 31, 2018 Out with the old and in with the new doesn't quite fit Metro Detroit for 2019. The new year appears to be more of a transition period, as progress continues on major developments downtown. There isn't a glitzy arena opening or a skyscraper near completion. Motorists traveling over the Detroit River will still have to look to the Ambassador Bridge as the Gordie Howe International Bridge begins to take shape. For change, head west to Lansing, where a Democratic governor, attorney general and secretary of state take power. All eyes will be on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her work with the Republican-controlled Legislature. But many questions will likely be answered: Will Detroit finally show population gain?

We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes. You might ask, … [Read more...] about Dave Barry’s year in review: Good riddance to 2018!
