Several inflammatory emails by Jon Gruden were filed as exhibits in federal court by Washington Football Team owner Daniel Snyder's attorneys in mid-June, almost four months before they were leaked to two newspapers.

From @nathanfenno and @LATimesfarmer:…
The heavily redacted emails between Gruden and then-Redskins president Bruce Allen include offensive language, chummy conversations with journalists and a barrage of complaints about the state of the #NFL.
Gruden’s name is redacted in most of the emails filed in court, replaced with "ESPN Personality."

He was employed by the network as the "Monday Night Football" analyst before rejoining the Raiders in 2018.

In one of them from July 2011, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter sent Allen the draft of an unpublished story that was published later the same day.
The emails were filed as part of an effort by Snyder’s legal team to compel Allen to produce discovery in connection with a defamation lawsuit Snyder is pursuing in India against a media company called MEAWW for stories it published in July 2020.…

For nearly two weeks, an overpowering foul smell — likened to rotten eggs, a dead body and poop — has been wafting from the Dominguez Channel.

"It’s like we’re gonna be known as that stinky city now, and I don’t want that," says Otilia Marquez.…
The stink has been the butt of plenty of online jokes: "If you can’t smell the air in Carson you DEFINITELY have COVID," one Twitter user quipped.

Others have suggested filling the Goodyear Blimp, which has a base in the city, with Febreze. Image
Los Angeles County officials say the smell is caused by hydrogen sulfide — a flammable, colorless gas known as “sewer gas” — coming from decaying vegetation in the channel that has built up because of the drought. Image
