Today’s quick hits deal with these important subjects:
The way we treat people we strongly disagree with is a report card on what we have learned about love, compassion, and kindness. – Marc & Angel Chernoff
Covington Catholic High School is a private, all-male, high school in Park Hills, Kentucky. It has between 500-600 students.
In case you missed it, videos surfaced of dozens of Covington students in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington after the March for Life, chanting as they do at games, wearing “Make America Great Again” hats and appearing to be in a standoff with an elderly Native American man. (NY Times)
Some reports said the students were mocking participants of the Indigenous Peoples March.
The spotlight grew so bright that the school issued a statement apologizing saying the “behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.” The school also said they would investigate and take appropriate action up to and including expulsion.
Those on the left went wild in condemning the students.
Stupid is knowing the truth, seeing the truth, but still believing the lies. – Unknown

Today’s independent commentary deals with these issues:
As a veteran, it has always been pretty interesting to me to watch and read what people say and do on Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Armed Forces Day.
I was amused watching the events surrounding Veterans Day this year. Here are some of my thoughts.
This past week leading up to Veterans Day we are inundated with Veterans Day sales. It seems mattresses are all the rage this year. For some reason, I don’t think I would spend Veterans Day shopping for a mattress, but that’s just me.
Of course, as a veteran, we can get a “great deal” on the car this week! Can’t we always get a “great deal” on a car, somewhere?
