LOS ANGELES (AP) — There's still no word on the condition of a gunman who staged an attack at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday, killing one Transportation Security Administration officer and wounding two others. The suspect, who was wounded in a shootout with airport police, carried a semi-automatic weapon and a note that said he wanted to "kill TSA." PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A Taliban commander says the replacement for the slain leader of the Pakistani Taliban won't be long in coming with the likelihood of a successor being chosen today. Hakimullah Mehsud was killed by a U.S. drone strike in a major blow to the group. Pakistani intelligence and other Taliban commanders confirm the death. BEIJING (AP) — A local official says at least 11 workers are dead and 17 other injured in the explosion of a fireworks factory in southern China. The official Xinhua (shin-wah) News Agency reports most of the victims were female workers who were assembling fuses for firecrackers. Xinhua reports the factory was destroyed. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco city gardener who was charged with vehicular manslaughter and felony hit and run after driving over a woman relaxing at a park has been fired. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that 58-year-old Thomas Burnoski, who was an employee at the Recreation and Park Department, received a notice of termination Thursday. UNDATED (AP) — The labor movement is getting a boost by going to college. Thousands of part-time college professors are joining labor unions, a growing trend in higher education that's also seen as giving voice to teachers who complain about low pay and a lack of job security at some of the nation's top universities. Unionization follows the increased reliance on adjunct professors, who often make far less than full professors.
