NEW YORK (AP) — The father of Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza says what his son did couldn't "get any more evil" and he wishes his son hadn't been born. Peter Lanza tells The New Yorker magazine that he believes his son would have killed him if he had had the chance.

The country has come under fire from Asian neighbors for setting up a team to review history and verify the accuracy of interviews with women who said they worked as sex slaves for Japanese soldiers before and during the war. Japanese nationalists have long insisted the tens of thousands of women who worked in wartime brothels were voluntary prostitutes.

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index finds that this year, 15.9 percent of Americans remain uninsured. It was 17.1 percent for the last three months of 2013. Gallup says the percent of Americans lacking coverage is on track to drop to the lowest quarterly level it's measured since 2008, before President Barack Obama took office.

MULBERRY, Fla. (AP) — A skydiver injured when a small plane crashed into him near Tampa, Fla., says he'll jump again.
