Good Morning. It’s Wednesday 22 February 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
The Los Angeles Lakers basketball team, who have struggled over the last decade, made a major move yesterday, bringing in Magic Johnson–the leader during their golden years–as President of Basketball Operations. Johnson, who is one of the owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, will shake up the team, the operations, and the personnel. As noted professor Edward de Bono once said, “You can’t dig a new hole by digging the same hole deeper” and the Lakers were in serious need of a culture change and a turnaround. Have at it, Magic.
In other news, our elected officials are hearing from the people who elected them in town halls across America. Some of the officials are acquitting themselves well and others are not. All of them are facing crowds of voters who want to know the answer to the big question of the day: what, precisely is going on in Washington and America and what are you going to do about it? Good question. How about some answers?
