What can you learn from the brain of a genius?

    Who Stole Einstein's Brain?
    Einstein's brain has been on a bit of a journey, and most people aren't aware of it. There's a lot of debate as to whether or not the late, famed intellect had a unique brain structure, but few would argue that the story that began following his demise is anything other than a cloak-and-dagger thriller.

    A boost for Democrats, Pa. Supreme Court dramatically overhauls state's congressional map
    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has enacted a new congressional district map that onlookers say is much more favorable to Democrats, replacing one the court overturned and deemed an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander last month. Justices described the new map in their 48-page decision as "superior" to other proposals filed for their consideration.
