SPECIAL DISCOUNT UPDATE:
Facebook has been vocal about tamping down on fake news and ‘inauthentic’ user behavior, but there’s still a glaring loophole in its attempts. After years of pledges by Facebook (FB) to quash “inauthentic” behavior on the social network, Facebook Pages still don’t come close to being an open book. The ownership of these Pages — which anyone can set up on Facebook to highlight businesses, communities or public figures — continues to be a mystery.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!
Sen. Rand Paul’s wife is opening up about his “terrifying” recovery process after he was allegedly assaulted by a neighbor earlier this month.
In an emotional op-ed for CNN, Kelley Paul reveals that her husband is still in a constant state of suffering, explaining that the Kentucky Republican “has not taken a single without pain” since the Nov. 3 attack.
“He has not had a single night’s sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing,” she wrote. “As his wife, I have been distraught over seeing him suffer like this. There have been several nights where I had my hand on my phone ready to call 911 when his breathing became so labored it was terrifying.”
Kelley said the press coverage of the incident has only added insult to injury, criticizing news outlets for “victimizing Rand a second time” and “delighting in hateful headlines like ‘Not A Perfect Neighbor,’ and concocting theories about an ‘ongoing dispute,’ based on nothing more than speculation from an attention-seeking person with no knowledge of anything to do with us.”
Kelley wrote that neither she nor her husband has spoken to the alleged attacker, neighbor Rene Albert Boucher, in 10 years and that there was not a long-running dispute between the two men, as Boucher’s lawyer claimed.
Boucher pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault in the incident, CNN and other outlets reported.
His attorney, Matt Baker, told local station WBKO, “It’s just a disagreement — a long-standing disagreement between two neighbors.”

Baker also told WKU Public Radio, “The unfortunate occurrence of November 3rd has absolutely nothing to do with either’s politics or political agendas. It was a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial. We sincerely hope that Senator Paul is doing well and that these two gentlemen can get back to being neighbors as quickly as possible.”
Baker added in a statement to CNN earlier this month that “we should believe” Boucher and Paul’s mutual neighbor, Jim Skaggs, who told the outlet that there has been a “long-running disagreement” between the two men over property maintenance.
But Kelley writes that “the only ‘dispute’ existed solely in the attacker’s troubled mind, until, on a beautiful autumn day, he ran down the hill on our property and slammed his body into Rand’s lower back as he stood facing away, wearing noise canceling headphones to protect his ears from the lawnmower.”
After the alleged assault, Paul suffered five rib fractures, including three displaced fractures and bruised lungs. His wife says that after he returned to Washington, D.C. last week, determined to “do his job,” Paul was diagnosed with pneumonia in his damaged lung.
“This Thanksgiving weekend, instead of playing golf with his sons or enjoying our annual touch football game with family and neighbors, Rand will be in pain,” she wrote. “But we will still be grateful for the love of our large and supportive family, and for the encouragement and prayers of hundreds of kind and thoughtful people during these last weeks.”
