Good Afternoon, it’s Saturday, 17 February 2018,  and this is the Late Afternoon Edition of The Nightshift…
Lindsey Vonn did not make the podium in the Women’s Super G. She now looks ahead to the Women’s Downhill, which will be staged–winds permitting–on Wednesday or Thursday of next week. Nathan Chen threw six quads at his long program and Adam Rippon skated a precise and controlled routine, but neither of them made the podium in the men’s skating program.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russians for interfering with the 2016 Presidential election. President Trump’s response was to say “no collusion”. However, the bigger story is that Mueller’s indictment destroys the administration’s claim that Russian meddling was a “hoax”.  Why isn’t the President of the United States upset about attempts to undermine our democracy?
Today is National Random Acts of Kindness Day. Do something good and unexpected, for someone who is not expecting it. That’s the way it works.
