Organizers cancel another Women's March as support drops 'drastically
They canceled a Women’s March event in Eureka, California, on the grounds that participants in the 1.8% black town would be too white. Now the organizers for the Women’s March in New Orleans (Chocolate City) have decided to cancel this year’s event, which was scheduled to take place Jan. 19, due to “drastically” low fundraising and participation interest. …
In the announcement, organizers said controversy with Women’s March national leaders has led to a steep decline in overall interest, including fundraising and participation. Last month, devastating exposés in Tablet Magazine and the New York Times revealed the deep anti-Semitic ties among the most prominent leaders in the Women’s March movement. More
Unprepared and Overwhelmed
Failures by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and school district cost children their lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Information reported over 10 months by the South Florida Sun Sentinel reveals 58 minutes of chaos on campus marked by no one taking charge, deputies dawdling, false information spreading, communications paralyzed and children stranded with nowhere to hide.
To be sure, a number of teachers and police officers performed heroically. But an examination of the day’s events reveals that the Sheriff’s Office and school district were unprepared for the crisis. Here’s a minute-by-minute look at those critical moments on Feb. 14, 2018. Story from the Sun-Sentinel

A Time Of Reckoning
Over the past four months, Roman Catholic dioceses across the U.S. have released the names of more than 1,000 priests and others accused of sexually abusing children in an unprecedented public reckoning spurred at least in part by a shocking grand jury investigation in Pennsylvania, an Associated Press review has found.
Nearly 50 dioceses and religious orders have publicly identified child-molesting priests in the wake of the Pennsylvania report issued in mid-August, and 55 more have announced plans to do the same over the next few months, the AP found. Together they account for more than half of the nation’s 187 dioceses. More
