California's forthcoming budget proposal has an ambitious plan in it for the state to start its own brand of generic prescription drugs with an eye on dramatically cutting prices.  Can it work? 

Uber is making some changes to its pricing system, but only in California........and it would seem only as a way to work around the state's new independent contractor law, which was written specifically with Uber in mind. 

It appears the Ukrainian Airlines 737 that crashed shortly after taking off from Tehran's airport was a victim of Iranian-U.S. tensions:  there's now evidence showing the plane was accidentally shot down by an Iranian missile.

Speaking of those tensions, the House of Representatives is set to approve new limits on President Trump's ability to launch attacks on Iran.

And there's drama in the United Kingdom where Prince Harry and his American bride Meghan Markle are planning to bail on the royal family; apparently they didn't even give a head's up to the Queen!  Is this the beginning of the end of the British royal family?
