Hugh Hefner's complicated legacy Hugh Hefner died at his home, the Playboy Mansion, yesterday. Although married a few times, the Playboy founder embodied the ultimate bachelor, in his signature silk pajamas, smoking jacket, and pipe. He popularized sexual liberation, voyeurism, and of course the “Playboy Playmate.” But there’s another side to Hefner’s legacy. “Playboy” featured black models, entertainers, and activists long before other mainstream outlets and Hefner was a supporter of various civil rights movements...so how should we remember Hef – as a supporter of racial equality or a master misogynist?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?

The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
