    Most of us know that California and many other western states are in a state of severe drought, but visualizing the crisis is a different story.

    Getty Images photographer Justin Sullivan captured these dramatic aerial shots of California’s reservoirs and placed them side-by-side with images taken several years ago.

  10. FERGUSON TAX DOLLARS AT WORK: STATE SENATOR DENIED ACCESS TO GOVERNMENT BUILDING

    Not sure how I missed this story from August 21.

Officials blocked Senator Nasheed’s delivery and told her that the building was closed. It clearly wasn’t.
