Volcanoes shaped New Zealand. This week’s eruption will not be the last.
"The Monday eruption of White Island, New Zealand’s most consistently active volcano, killed at least six and injured more than two dozen people. It was a painful reminder of the danger behind the country’s stunning, and sometimes surreal, landscapes: the ever-present possibility of another eruption."

So Much For the Deep State Plot Against Donald Trump
"It does nothing of the sort. On Monday, inspector general Michael Horowitz released the nearly 500-page "Review of Four FISA Applications and Other Aspects of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation," referring to the agency’s probe of potential links between Russia and the Trump campaign. The report summarizes an investigation that encompassed more than 170 interviews with more than 100 witnesses, as well as the review of a million documents."

In Congress and at the Justice Department, a Bad Day for Facts, Fairness, and the Future
"The proceedings that took place a few blocks away after lunch were more decorous but more alarming. The Justice Department Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, released a long-awaited report on whether the F.B.I. properly conducted its Trump-Russia investigation in 2016. The four-hundred-and-thirty-four-page document posits that major mistakes were made. F.B.I. officials repeatedly omitted facts that would have undermined their applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for a wiretap of the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. But Horowitz concluded that the over-all investigation was legally justified and not politically biased. That conclusion refutes years of President Trump’s claims that he and his campaign were the victims of a conspiracy."
