When Gabrielle Stein opened her eyes on the morning of June 23, she was met face-to-face with a giant, tattooed, dead fetus. It was four feet tall, to be exact. And it was only a photo. But she awoke to the same image on the ceiling above her bed every […]

It was a gusty night on July 22, 2010 in Hartford, Conn. Winds reached 22 mph making trees flow like they were doing “the wave” at a football game, but Michael Gundlach was determined to land his 1981, 2-seat, single-engine Cessna 152 airplane. It was Gundlach’s first solo cross-country trip, […]
