Yesterday the artist known as Prince died. We are all still in shock but it interesting to see how yesterday was all about the loss and today is all about the why. What happened? How did he die? Today people are talking about drugs in his system. Why do we build someone up and then try to demolish the icon created? Share your thoughts.

Donald Trump has been allowed to call into all the morning news shows except CBS This Morning. When he calls in he dominates the conversation and frequently talks over the interviewer, but they let him do it. Kudos to CBS for just saying no. Read the linked story and share your thoughts.

Franklin Graham protests University of Maryland cancelling “American Sniper” because Muslim students complained
FRANKLIN GRAHAM’S FACEBOOK POST
Can you believe that the University of Maryland canceled a screening of the movie American Sniper after Muslim students complained? This afternoon, I’m going to meet with wounded military veterans and their spouses who served this nation with honor–fighting to preserve our freedoms and many times shedding their own blood. Chris Kyle was an American hero. It’s brave soldiers like these that make all of the freedoms we enjoy possible. Shame on the University of Maryland for listening to these voices! If these Muslim students can’t support the military members who do their job to protect us, let them leave America and go to a Muslim country. God bless America and our heroes! SHARE this if you agree.
I read the post above and I was struck by the venomous tone. Schools are a melting pot of races and nationalities and schools have to be sensitive to diverse communities. Muslim students complained to officials at the University of Maryland about American Sniper. Graham said if they don’t like it they need to go to a Muslim country. Well if this is where they were born they don’t need to leave their own country. There are movies that some groups applaud and others are offended by that same film and their feelings should be considered and not dismissed, and not told to take a hike.

Today I have heard several talking heads call Brian Williams a liar. Some said he should be fired. My question is did Williams really know he was lying? Who in their right mind would lie about something that so many people could readily dispute? So often when we tell a story over and over and year after year the story changes. Sometimes we don’t even notice we have embellished until someone who was there calls us on it and that is what happened to Williams he go called on it. Williams has told his version for so long that it has become his truth, but it really wasn’t.
When you watch the Super Bowl you just want to have fun. You look forward to the commercials. You expect funny, quirky and even heartfelt, but you don’t want sad and that is what Nationwide gave us. It was like someone throwing cold water in your face. We were looking for laughs not lessons.
