Do not be afraid of dying. Be afraid of living with nothing to die for. –Unknown
Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm, humor, and bluntness.
This week’s topics include border fencing, iPad problems, unemployment, Jeopardy, delinquent meal accounts, Lucky for Life, Minnesota undercover sting, Governor Steve Bullock, annual debt, possible US Space Command bases, Trump’s immigration policy, and much more!
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.
