A pilot walked away after crash-landing his small airplane on the Seward-Meridian Parkway in Alaska.

Matanuska-Susitna Borough spokeswoman Patty Sullivan says in a statement there were no injuries. She identified the pilot as Jeff Burwell, and says his plane clipped a post.

Alaska State Troopers say there is a small airstrip near the highway in Wasilla. It appears the plane had trouble after taking off, and Burwell wound up making the emergency landing on the highway.

Wasilla is about 40 miles north of Anchorage.

Louisiana Abortion Law Upheld; Disaster for Texas Women?

Texas isn't the only state attempting to restrict women's access to reproductive health. Louisiana did too, and a recent federal court decision shows how the Louisiana law could have implications in Texas.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported earlier this month that the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stopped a challenge by doctors and abortion providers to a 1997 Louisiana law that treats physicians who provide abortions differently from those who do not.

According to the Times-Picayune article, the 1997 law, known as Act 825, created a ten-year statute of limitations for a woman to sue her abortion provider. It also bars abortion providers from a state-run medical malpractice review process and to a state fund designed to defray the costs of satisfying malpractice judgments against them that arise from abortion procedures.

The court ruled that the doctors and other providers did not have standing to challenge the law.

Sousaphones meet gravity, pileup ensues

Making the rounds on the internet recently is this six-sousaphone pileup during a performance of the Lake Travis High School marching band.

Marching bands start working out these routines during the summer and perfect them throughout the football season.

In an instant, all that work can come crashing down.

Accidents happen. They don't always happen while you have a sousaphone wrapped around your body.

Here's the part where gravity takes over.
