It translates quickly into “never.” The families, of course, need support; but TV interviews indicate that the majority of them want gun control action by the government to stop the massacres. 

Columnist James Brooke writes: "Many people know about the Holodomor, or death by hunger. From 1932-33, the Kremlin carried out an artificial famine that killed about four million Ukrainians. Now, with the first snows falling, Ukrainians face a new threat — 'Kholodomor,' or death by cold."

Officers originally responded to the building Nov. 17 and found what appeared to be human remains. The next day they found more. The Suffolk district attorney’s office previously confirmed that some of the remains were found in a freezer. They were removed by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and were determined to be the remains of four infants. Autopsy results are pending. No arrests have been announced and an investigation is ongoing.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta says the ads ran more than 23,000 times across 10 media markets. Google will pay $9 million. iHeartMedia, the largest owner of radio stations in the country, will pay $400,000. Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and Texas are also involved in the case.
