1,000 MILES IN THEIR SHOES "The WorldPost's Sophia Jones and Syrian-American journalist Hiba Dlewati traveled with refugees -- mostly Syrians -- for three weeks in August as they made their way from Turkey through Greece, Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, Austria and Germany. What they found was a modern-day underground railroad of sorts, made up of dedicated people defying the inaction of their governments by lending a helping hand to the men, women and children risking death for a better tomorrow. Here are the stories of a people in exodus -- and those who guide them to safety." And take a look at the story behind the story, as Sophia Jones shares what it was like to travel and report among the refugees. [Sophia Jones, HuffPost]

The docket listed hundreds of offenders who owed fines or fees for a wide variety of crimes -- hunting after dark, assault, drug possession and passing bad checks among them. 'Good morning, ladies and gentlemen,' began Judge Wiggins, a circuit judge here in rural Alabama since 1999. 'For your consideration, there’s a blood drive outside,' he continued, according to a recording of the hearing. 'If you don’t have any money, go out there and give blood and bring in a receipt indicating you gave blood.'” [NYT]
