Good Morning, it’s Sunday, 25 February 2018, and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
It’s all over in PyeonChang. The 2018 Winter Olympics are finishing off final events (broadcast via tape delay) and staging the closing ceremonies (see them tonight in prime time…). It’s been a great event filled with amazing stories–sports and otherwise–that provided a wonderful relief to the seemingly endless stream of political dama coming out of Washington. Hope that you stayed up late last night to watch the 50KM men’s mass start cross country marathon (approximately 30 miles), which was won by Finland’s Livo Niskanen who battled Russian ALexander Bolshunov all the way through the last half of the grueling race in a surprisingly dramatic snow marathon. It was Finland’s first Gold of the Olympics. Norway won the most Gold medals of any country in the Olympics, with 39. The United States was fourth in the medal count with 23.

The Democrats released their White House-delayed rebuff to the Devin Nunes FISA memo which was released–without delay, of course–approximately two weeks ago. Based on facts and the correct timeline, the Democratic memo devastated the logic that Nunes put forth in an attempt to say that the current administration had been unfairly targeted by the FBI and/or some other “deep state” government entity. Nunes continues to build a reputation as a wayward legislator who’s uncomfortable with hard truths and facts.
Today is National Clam Chowder Day. The perfect treat for a cold or cloudy day.
