In a major policy shift, the Trump administration is going to take another look at affirmative action programs that may have discriminated against white students in college admissions, as the Justice Department takes a dramatic turn to the right in civil rights policy.
There are other major news stories about all kinds of misdirection and missteps in our current government, but time for a break from all that. It’ll be there tomorrow (it always is). Instead, please take a look at some of the “smaller stories” that can be found in the newspapers featured on The Nightshift, like the following from today’s New York Times.
“You call someplace paradise, kiss it goodbye”  The Eagles sang in “The Last Resort”, and the latest victim of that geographic truism is Venice Italy, which is being overrun with tourists .
Comedian Rodney Dangerfield finally gets some respect; the Kew Gardens neighborhood where he grew up (without respect), put up a plaque in honor of one of our great and classic comedians.
Today is National Coloring Book Day (and, if you’re not into coloring books, it’s also National Ice Cream Sandwich Day). So–your choice: Crayolas or an ice cream sandwich. You can’t go wrong.
