University of Michigan Can’t Tell If You’re a Boy or Girl Unless You Tell Them

From the story:  A new initiative by the University of Michigan invites students to report their preferred gender pronouns to the university so faculty and staff can use these when addressing each student.  Here’s what’s scary:  These people are educating your children.  If they can’t identify a boy in their classroom, how can they explain the far more complicated areas of biology and chemistry?  My three-year-old knows a girl when they see one but a professor at the University of Michigan needs to check his roster.

Gallup: Voters Prefer Trump on Economy

But Hillary leads in most other categories (Gallup).  New polls show Clinton up slightly (RCP).  A story notes “Democrats are beginning to worry that too many African-American voters are uninspired by Clinton’s candidacy, leading her campaign to hit the panic button this week and launch an all-out blitz to juice-up voter enthusiasm” (Politico).   Hillary’s love of abortion continues to be an issue (The Pulse).  And then there’s this:  NBC parent company Comcast donated $5.6 million to the Democratic Party during its convention in Philadelphia, and NBC provided Monday night’s presidential debate moderator (Daily Caller).

Florida Sheriff’s Office Refuses to Escort NFL’s Dolphins Until They Stand for Anthem

From the story:  “I didn’t want to believe that it was really happening,” he said. “But when he stepped on the flag – I just thought about all these men and women who fought for that flag that he just walked on – all these men and women who’ve come home with that flag draped over their coffin.” So Alex grabbed his phone and snapped a photo – a photo that would eventually go viral on Facebook. Then, the teenager rose from his seat, picked up the flag and took the defiled banner to the principal’s office. “We are extremely proud of him,” Alex’s mother told me. “He did the right thing.” However, doing the right thing could land the brave, young patriot in hot water.

Mr. Francis told me Alex “broke the law” and should be punished. “I believe that child does need to be punished in some way – absolutely,” the teacher told me. “I can’t take a picture of them and in turn they cannot do the same of me.”

Vinson has been with the department for two years” (CBS News).  More on the Charlotte shooting (CNN).  Meanwhile, a more detailed look at the shooting of Terence Crutcher (ABC News).  Trump had a more sensitive answer to the difficult Tulsa shooting (RCP).
