    This file photo combo shows from left to right serial killers the Boston Strangler Albert DeSalvo, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz. Several studies show that most serial killers start their lives as sociopaths by torturing or killing pets. For years, the FBI has filed animal cruelty crimes with a variety of others under the heading of “other,” making them hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. That’s changing. The FBI announced this month it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category, the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed in the agency’s Uniform Crime Report Program.

    FILE - In this July 31, 2014 file photo, Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is seen in her chambers in at the Supreme Court in Washington. The fastest and surest path to marriage for same-sex couples in some parts of the United States would be for the Supreme Court to surprise everyone and decline to get involved in the issue right now. A decision by the justices to reject calls from all quarters to take up same-sex marriage would allow gay and lesbian couples in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin to begin getting married almost immediately. Rulings in their favor have been put on hold while the Supreme Court considers their cases. Ginsburg appeared to be addressing that concern when she said in July that the court would not duck the issue as it did for years with bans on interracial marriage.

Incumbent Dilma Rousseff, a former Marxist guerrilla who was imprisoned and tortured during Brazil’s military dictatorship, rarely spoke of religion before this campaign, but she has been making the rounds of Pentecostal churches and invoking God’s name of late. By contrast, the deeply religious challenger Marina Silva has made no campaign stops in churches and has kept Pentecostal leaders at arm’s length in public, hoping to combat suspicions among non-religious voters that conservative pastors could shape the stance a Silva government would have on social issues.
