  • A group of NJ Transit train workers are suing the transit agency for negligence, saying it didn't do enough to protect them from assaults, spitting and gun threats from unruly passengers.
  • Amazon has backed out of building a major cargo center at Newark Airport after pushback from unions and workers rights groups.
  • Former Red Sox player Manny Ramirez stirred up trouble by recently saying that Derek Jeter would've been "just a regular player" had he not played for the Yankees.
  • An Upper East Side restaurant that serves French fries cooked with Dom Perignon, French duck fat and a lot of truffles is bring back the $200 order — which makes it the world's most expensive fries — ahead of National French Fry Day, which is next week.
  • Here's a tidy rundown of Boris Johnson's history of being a liar.
  • Former Theranos executive Sunny Balwani was convicted yesterday on 12 counts of fraud and now faces up to 20 years in prison.
  • The pizza situation in Iowa looks horrible.
