Good Morning. It’s Monday, 6 March 2017, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed.
The weekend cleanup from Washington and the White House is over and so we start a new weekly news cycle which, no doubt, will be complete with even more drama than before. Two things on this week’s schedule: a new “travel ban” and the first outline of the revised new “health plan”. Plenty to be debate on both of those.
General Motors has opted to sell its European operations to Peugeot, exiting a market that they’ve never quite been able to figure out. North Korean remains defiant and fired off four separate short/medium range missiles over the weekend. All this in direct opposition to the missile ban they are supposed to be observing. Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters?
In sports, Dustin Johnson won the PGA’s WGC tournament in Mexico City and moved himself into early position as the favorite to win the Masters Tournament; conference championships in NCAA men’s basketball will start this week (next week is “Selection Sunday” to pick the teams for the NCAA National Championship tournament). Lots of basketball for the next couple of weeks.
