Greetings Webtaculators! It seems like everyone is quitting: Steve Bannon, Confederate Statues, The White House Committee on Arts and Humanities, hell, even the sun! Maybe they should all go to Burning Man and talk it out. On to the news.
STORY OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Only The Best
Why: Because Trump’s ability to pick winners continued with Stephen Bannon quitting / being fired this past week. Since we’re counting, this is the fourth major advisor who has been forced out since Trump became President. The fallout this time was at least partially due in part to Trump’s inability to denounce Nazis. Or maybe it’s because he can’t appropriately denounce global terrorism, either. Remember, when anyone says that “both sides” are bad, here is the wrong side.
ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: Great For Business!
Why: Because Trump’s business council quit, too.
LAW THING OF THE WEEK (4 min. read)
What: A Change In Free Speech
Why: Because when the First and Second Amendment are brought to a protest, it doesn’t make sense to back the one that can actually kill people.

PHOTOGRAPHY THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. look)

VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
