I decided to stay home today. You? Here are some possible topics:
- Anything to report about Irma? — My parents have no power at their house. They were told about 6,000 homes are in a similar situation. And there’s that tree across my neighbor’s house above. You?
- Irma knocks out power to more than 6 million in Florida — Which, I suppose, puts our 6,000 into perspective.
- Desperation in Caribbean: ‘All the Food Is Gone’ — And then, farther south, things are worse than that. Which is usually the case.
- From Sept. 11 To The Beatles’ British Invasion: How We Remember Our First News Events — It seems incredible to those of us who were stunned by JFK’s assassination, but there are actual, technical adults walking around for whom 9/11 was the first huge news event they can recall. For others, it’s smaller events such as the death of Princess Diana.
- Pope Francis: If Trump is ‘pro-life,’ he should extend DACA — You bet.
