Good Morning, it’s Thursday, 30 November 2017, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift, The World News Daily
Down Time: American Airlines  announced that a scheduling “glitch” has totally messed up flight crew planning for the busiest time of the year: the period around the Christmas holidays. As many as 15,000 holiday flights could be affected.  Will you be home for Christmas?
The Daily Grope: Add “Prairie Home Companion” creator, writer, and host Garrison Keillor to those fired because of inappropriate conduct. Keillor was terminated by NPR after an accusation was leveled at him. And that’s the news from Lake Woebegone. At NBC, the mess continues. Matt Lauer has issued a statement (“There are no words to express my sorrow and pain..” yada yada yada) about the accusations that resulted in his firing by NBC. According to some news outlets, two other women have come forth with additional accusations. Not good for the man who went from reporting the news to being the news.
President Trump is under fire for re-tweeting a series of anti-muslim videos promoted by a fascist British Right Wing Group (Britain First). Time to wind down the dialogue that is splintering the U.S.? In the meantime, the situation is heating up (again) on the Korean peninsula. At a time we could really use some experienced, nuanced, effective diplomacy we have……….
Shakeup: Eli Manning, the New York Giants quarterback, winner of two Super Bowls (and MVP in both of those Super Bowls) has been benched, in yet another astonishing goof by New York coach Ben Mcadoo. Mcadoo, who replaced two-time Super Bowl winner Tom Coughlin,  has a losing record as a head coach and  did not play football at the collegiate or professional level. Eli Manning is headed for the Hall of Fame. Giants fans are outraged at the move; even more outrageous is the fact that Mcadoo has decided to start Geno Smith, a former New York Jets bust at quarterback who has a 12-18 overall record. In other sports news, Tiger Woods returns to competition today in the World Hero Challenge. It will be Tiger’s first competitive outing in over a year; he as been recovering from back issues.
Today is National Stay Home Because You’re Well Day. Face it, it’s no fun to be home when you’re sick, but when you’re well…..that’s a totally different opportunity.
Also, we added the CNN “text news” site, which is much faster than their full multi-media site. It’s also below at the end of the links.
