VA nominee drunkenly banged on female employee’s door during overseas trip, sources say:

During an overseas trip in 2015, Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, the White House physician, was intoxicated and banged on the hotel room door of a female employee, according to four sources familiar with the allegation.

The incident became so noisy, one source familiar with the allegation told CNN, that the Secret Service stopped him out of concern that he would wake then-President Barack Obama.

Two sources who previously worked in the White House Medical Unit described the same incident, with one former staffer telling CNN that it was “definitely inappropriate, in the middle of the night,” and that it made the woman uncomfortabl

Meek Mill released from prison:

Meek Mill has been released from prison.

After spending nearly five months incarcerated after a controversial sentence for violating probation, the Philadelphia rapper was out and en route to a basketball game on Tuesday evening. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered an immediate release for Mill earlier in the day, directing the judge to release him on “unsecured bail.”
“I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including JAY-Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time,” the rapper, whose full name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, said in a statement obtained by CNN. “While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive.”

Without speaking a word, dressed in a white Michael Kors Collection asymmetrical blazer and skirt — and an eye-catching, custom-made Hervé Pierre hat — Melania Trump spoke volumes. This was her house, her dinner and her terms.
It has truly been a spotlight week for the first lady, kicking off with her attendance at Barbara Bush’s funeral, the sole White House representation joining other first ladies and former presidents and culminating with her first state dinner. In many ways, the events showcased Melania Trump’s contrasts with her husband — where he is impulsive, she is meticulous; where he is combative, she is compassionate.

The super groovy talent behind ‘Schoolhouse Rock’:

Millions of Americans, and many more throughout the world, just lost their favorite civics teacher.

Bob Dorough died Monday at age 94. Although nobody who watched “Schoolhouse Rock” animated shorts on Saturday mornings beginning in 1973 knew his name, they knew their times tables, their American history and their grammar because of the songs he wrote.

At a time when education has been under siege as never before, especially from Washington, don’t you think there’s a desperate need for teachers on the airwaves — and the internet — to make memorization fun? The hipper, the better
