1/ A Shooting In Washington
The world came to a standstill in Washington DC last Wednesday after a gunman opened fire on a Republican Congressmen at a baseball field where they were practicing for the annual congressional baseball game. Among the most dangerously wounded was House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, who remains in serious condition after several surgeries last week.
The shooting was stopped largely thanks to the help of Scalise’s security detail, which isn’t something that is provided to every member of Congress. Had the member of House Leadership been unable to attend for some reason, this could have been a much different story.

5/ How Deep Is The Divide?
A thought-provoking piece comes out of the New York Times this week that focuses on the disdain we have for each other, of opposing political party.
Democrats and Republicans truly think worse of each other, a trend that isn’t really about policy preferences. Members of the two parties are more likely today to describe each other unfavorably, as selfish, as threats to the nation, even as unsuitable marriage material.
And while it may seem obvious that doesn’t make it right, or something we should have to accept as normal.
