Derek Jeter’s Magical End to a Magical Career with the Yankees Last night was Derek Jeter’s last game as shortstop for the New York Yankees with the team playing the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee stadium. In the 9th inning, the game was tied five to five, when Jeter came to the plate. Steven Goldman is managing editor for Baseball for SB Nation—an American Sports Network.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
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.
