Good Morning, it’s Monday 14 August 2017, and this is the late morning edition of The Nightshift, the world’s overnight news feed (and back on track after a delay in net’casting yesterday).
The carnage in Charlottesville, Virginia, scene of  very nasty weekend white nationalist/white supremacists demonstrations, is mounting. One person–a counter protestor–was killed when a car drove into the crowd. Another 19 were injured. Now the blame game begins: the police(they didn’t do enough to control either side of the rallies); the President (he did not quickly, expressly and specifically criticize the white nationalists for their actions); the protestors (this type of political/cultural position is no longer valid in this country) and counter protestors (did the left attend the event looking for a fight?). In other words–it’s a mess in every possible way, socially, culturally, legally. The repercussions will continue for weeks.
Anthony Scaramucci is in the news again. He claims that certain parties in the White House are out to “eject” Donald Trump.The “Mooch” was also very critical (again) of Steve Bannon. He may have a point, but someone in the White House likes Bannon–he’s still in place and Scaramucci only lasted 11 days because someone hit the eject button on him first.
Justin Thomas, a twenty-four year old tour golf professional who is the son of a PGA pro, won the PGA Championship on Sunday at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, NC.  It was Thomas’ first major. Thomas was eight under for the tournament and shot three under on the final day. Francisco Molinari, Patrick Reed, and Hideki Matsuyama were all tied for second, at six under par.
Today is National VJ Day. If you know someone who fought in the Second World War–and particularly in the Pacific theater of that war–thank them for their service.
