CNN: Exclusive: Juror pushes for new laws following Zimmerman trial
The woman known as Juror B37 in the George Zimmerman trial released a statement exclusively to CNN Wednesday pushing for new laws. "My prayers are with all those who have the influence and power to modify the laws that left me with no verdict option other than 'not guilty' in order to remain within the instructions. No other family should be forced to endure what the Martin family has endured," she wrote. The juror, who was interviewed by CNN, said she will not grant other interviews and wants to get back to a normal life. "For reasons of my own, I needed to speak alone," she said.
CNN: That gooey heat? It's gets worse Thursday
Like many things in life, it's going to get worse before it gets better. That lardy layer of humid, sticky heat oozing over the Northeast and Midwest is getting hotter and spreading out Thursday. But cooling rain will wash it away in some places in the evening. The worst of it started out on the National Weather Service map as bright orange spots over parts of New England and Michigan earlier this week. The spots have grown nearly together like a bad rash, forming a seething blotch from Massachusetts to South Dakota. Heat above 90 degrees will combine with roughly 100% humidity to make it feel like it's in the 100s.
