Secret Service Demotes Agent Who Declared She Wouldn’t Do Her Job

11:16 AM 03/20/2017

The Secret Service has really been taking a beating over the past few years. From partying with hookers in Colombia, to letting dudes jump the White House fence and wander around the grounds, to leaving their laptops sitting around for anyone to pick up, the men and women who protect the President of the United States are having some PR problems. So it's a bit of a relief to learn that for once, they're doing the right thing. Well, sort of.

If I ran a bar, I wouldn't let my personal dislike of Donald Trump and those dopey Make America Great Again hats prevent me from taking somebody's money.

One of the great things about the Obama era was being told how to live your life. You were told which physician you could have ("If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor," LOL), which words you could say, which beliefs you could express in public, etc. And most importantly, you were told which foods your kids could eat for lunch.

CNN Has Figured Out How Statues Work

Last week, a Wall Street group called State Street Global Advisors put up a statue called "Fearless Girl" across from the famous "Charging Bull" statue. The idea is that the little girl statue isn't afraid of the bull statue. Which is amazing because... well, it just is. It's super-feminist, you guys. That little statue is so brave!
