More news on Thursday, much of it (in the eyes of some) “political” – 2/22/2018

NOTE to anonymous online terrorists: The news items in this post are about items of interest for many Columbia news, views & reviews readers – because they deal with the fabric of the ethics of this statement: “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” If you consider this a “mostly political rag” – do not read any further. Close your browser and “do not pass go and do not collect $200.”
