The outpouring of support has been overwhelming from all corners of the world.

Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien -- but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most -- from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. - President Obama

The former estate of Michael Jackson, Neverland Ranch, is being prepared for sale according to this article.
 
Thomas Barrack Jr. of Colony Capital LLC discusses the estate.
 
“We’ve really just been custodians of an irreplaceable estate and are proud to say we’ve restored it to the original elegance Michael first envisioned,” Barrack said. “We are now considering putting it up for sale.”
 
They also interviewed a broker associate, Thomas LePley, to get an idea of value on the property. “I’d say it’s worth $35 million to $50 million, depending on what they do with it. Barrack has cleaned it up and returned it to perfect condition. It had been neglected.”

Scary moments for a passenger traveling down a highway in Massachusetts.

The photo above shows an ax that flew out of the back of a truck traveling on Rte. 95 in Topsfield, Massachusetts. The State police posted the photo to their Facebook page with this caption below.

"These motorists, whom we are not identifying, endured a very frightening moment shortly before 11 a.m. today as they were driving on Route 95 southbound in Topsfield. A landscaper driving a dump truck in front of them had failed to properly secure an axe, which flew off the truck and struck the windshield of the car behind it. Thankfully, the axe only went halfway through the windshield. The passenger who is partially seen in the photo was shaken up (who wouldn't be?) but not injured."

They also reminded motorists to secure all belongings safely.
