Sadly, the main news of the weekend is the death of Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, as well as the seven other people on the helicopter. Our sincere condolences go out to Vanessa Bryant and her daughters for their devastating loss.

The Grammys were held tonight in the Los Angeles Staples Center, which is home to the LA Lakers — Kobe’s team for 20 years. Alicia Keys and Boyz II Men paid tribute to the Bryants with an a cappella rendition of their song, “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday.” - (TV)

Did you know that Billy Jensen, who helped finish Michelle McNamara’s I’ll Be Gone in The Dark, has written his own book? As she read it, badkittyuno found herself rooting for the author to crack the cases the police couldn’t. "Jensen outlines a lot of the cases that he worked on, along with the obstacles (police officers who may or may not have appreciated his help, and may or may not have the time and resources to run down his leads), the families (the families are heart-breaking) and the results."
