Why Chris Christie is like the evil mastermind villain from Road House

This scene from Road House, where powerful bad guy Brad Wesley had his henchman drive a monster truck through an auto dealer’s business? This is essentially what New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s staff did to the mayor of Fort Lee, New Jersey—except it involved closing lanes of traffic on the George Washington Bridge. It was allegedly an act of political revenge. And now there are emails to prove it. Whoever released those emails to the press is a regular Patrick Swayze.

An extraordinary picture of a house in the middle of a newly built road in Wenling, Zhejiang province, China. An elderly couple refused to sign an agreement to allow their house to be demolished. They say that compensation offered is not enough to cover rebuilding costs. This and all the best news images from Thursday here: Photograph: China Daily/Reuters

Don’t be surprised if this image becomes iconic among U.S. opponents of eminent domain.
