Trudy Rubin: Putin is trying to wipe out Ukraine from the air, yet the West holds back air defense systems

Imagine if Philadelphia were totally blacked out for a dozen hours daily, with no water or heat and no electricity or cellphone coverage.

Imagine if surgeons at local hospitals had to operate by generator, and cars had to drive in total darkness while pedestrians navigated by flashlight.

Brother finds body Baltimore firefighters missed in building

A Baltimore family is demanding answers after firefighters responded to a warehouse fire Saturday night and failed to realize the building was occupied before leaving the scene. James Craig Jr., 45, was found dead the next morning after his brother went looking for him. Baltimore Police later launched a homicide investigation. Baltimore Fire officials said they had no reason to believe the building was occupied after finding signs of structural instability. Questions about their response come amid a time of turmoil for the department. The chief resigned last week after the release of an investigative report examining the department's response to a call that left three firefighters dead early this year.

Sen. Warnock hopes to repel challenge from Walker in runoff

Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock is hoping to push back a challenge from Republican football legend Herschel Walker in their runoff election that will decide the final U.S. Senate seat. With Democrats already assured a Senate majority, Tuesday's race will determine whether they have a 51-49 advantage or a 50-50 edge with Vice President Kamala Harris' tiebreaking vote. In the November election, Warnock led Walker by about 37,000 votes out of almost 4 million but fell shy of a majority. Warnock is seeking his first full term after winning a 2021 special election. Walker, a political novice, has nearly unmatched name recognition in the state from his long football career.
