Former President Warren G. Harding, the 29th man to hold America's highest office, would have made rapper Warren G proud with these racy love letters.

The latter cruised L.A. hollering at girls, bound for the East Side Motel. The former was dreaming of Carrie Fulton Phillips while in the East Room of the White House!

Harding (1865-1923) apparently carried on a salacious correspondence with his mistress in a selection of letters just released by the New York Times.

Warren G. Harding, Carrie Fulton Phillips

The letters, which detail Warren G. Harding's years-long affair with his Phillips, were originally discovered by historian Francis Russell during the 1960s,

Harding's descendants delayed the posthumous embarrassment by donating the letters to the Library of Congress, which kept them sealed for 50 years.

That half-century has just elapsed, and here we are.

The U.S. President, long regarded as one of the worst to ever hold that esteemed position, was married to Florence Harding from 1891 until his death.

He and Phillips began their affair in 1905, when the future Commander-in-Chief was editing a newspaper in Ohio, and she was the wife of his good friend.

He had a way with words. In 1912, he wrote her:

The pilot of a diverted Frontier Airlines plane is officially The Man.

According to a Fox affiliate in Denver, the unnamed captain called a Domino’s in Cheyenne, Wyoming after a flight from Washington to Denver had to make an unplanned stop due to bad weather at its destination.

He then ordered pizzas for his crew and all 160 passengers on board.

We took them up to the front desk at the airport and they escorted our driver to the back and they handed the pizzas directly to the flight attendants," says Domino's manager Andy Ritchie.

The plane had been on the runway for two hours when the pilot made his purchase.

Nash Grier, a 16-year-old who is somehow the most followed person on Vine, is seen in this video yelling a gay slur. And we mean full-on yelling, angrily.

It's pretty shocking. The video, which he posted in April and quickly deleted, surfaced only after Tyler Oakley, another social media star, posted it online.

The Vine clip features a TV commercial about HIV, in which several men seek to debunk the notion that the disease that leads to AIDS is "a gay thing."

Grier clearly does not agree with the message of the PSA:

Play it yourself if you want to see exactly what he says.

It's not clear how Oakley got his hands on Nash Grier's stunning Vine reaction to the HIV ad - whether he was kidding or not - and was appalled, blasting it out.

TMZ then shared the clip as well.

Grier, owner of some of the most-viewed snippets in the history of Vine as well as the most followers, has yet to address the controversy on his account.

One day in October 1839, Robert Cornelius made history.

He took what is believed to be the first selfie, a self-portrait he snapped (or whatever you'd call it with 1839 technology) in the yard behind his family's store.

Like the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania played host to the inaugural selfie, another defining moment in history:

The First Selfie

Exposures were long in those days. Really long.

The Library of Congress estimates that Cornelius had to hold this position for somewhere between three and 15 minutes, depending on the amount of light.

While many details are obviously unclear, Robert knew he was onto something. A note on back of the photo reads, "The first light picture ever taken."

In April, Andrew Robert Rector fell asleep while attending a baseball game between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox.

Fast forward a few months, and the uninterested fan has filed a $10 million lawsuit against ESPN because he believes announcers Dan Shulman and John Kruk directed an “avalanche of disparaging words" in his direction after he zonked out in the fourth inning.

In his filing, Rector accuses the pair of painting an inaccurate portrait of him, specifically one of a "fatty cow that need two seats at all time and represent symbol of failure."

Rector also says Shulman and Kruk depict him as a "confused individual that neither understands nor knows anything about history and the meaning of rivalry between Red Sox and New York Yankes," while indirectly labeling him as a "socially bankrupt individual."

Does Rector have a case*? Watch the exchange between the announcers in reference to his ballgame nap and decide for yourself:

*(No. Not even a small one.)

Here is a way to make plane crash selfies seem like the most regular and harmless thing in the world:

Take photos of yourself making funny poses at the most notorious concentration camp in human history and post them online.

Indeed, an Israeli Facebook group (whose name translates to "With My Besties in Auschwitz”) rose to viral infamy last week after it started publishing selfies of its members at Auschwitz.

Operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Germany during World War II, Auschwitz was the site of over 1 million deaths at the hands of the Nazis between 1942 and 1944.

This Facebook group featured pictures from the concentration camp, complete with hashtags and other marks of social media.

Two large airplanes nearly collided on a runway in Barcelona's El Prat Airport this week, and the scary moment in Spain was caught on video.

Incredibly, tragedy was averted as one jet's crew aborted their landing in order to avoid crashing into a jet that appeared to be in its path on the runway:

According to reports, an Aerolíneas Argentinas Airbus 340 is seen crossing the runway as a UTair Boeing 767, en route from Moscow, is on approach.

The descending jet was able to pull back and return skyward, just in time.

The jet from Russia landed about 15 minutes later after it had circled around, following what was termed "a missed approach."

The West View News is a monthly publication in New York City's West Village with a circulation of approximately 20,000 subscribers.

The West View News Headline

The piece is actually a pro-Barack Obama article that criticizes the “racism” of far-right voters.

But most readers believe the newspaper is the one being racist by running such an attention-grabbing headline.
