    After smooth confirmation hearings, Judge Amy Coney Barrett looks poised to break the ivy ceiling at the Supreme Court of the United States. All other eight justices on the court have Ivy League law school degrees on their walls, but Barrett's is from Notre Dame, the current capital of conservative Catholic academia, where she also served as a professor before being tapped for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals by President Donald Trump. The White House touted Barrett's Notre Dame pedigree in appointing her, but it also bragged about her undergraduate alma mater, Rhodes College, with a verbal faux pas...

One of the girls involved is seen pulling the plastic screen, which is used as part of COVID-19 safety policy updates, from the counter and throwing it at staff. In the same video, she picks up a metal stand and throws it. She also later spit on an employee, witnesses claimed.

    In this tense summer of racial unrest, cities around the country have erupted in violence. The damage estimate for MinneapolisÂ’ riots is more than $500 million for the first weekend alone. Portland is heading into its eighth week of destructive riots. Even Christopher Columbus could not escape the anger of the mob as they toppled his statue into BaltimoreÂ’s inner harbor.One large American city has maintained peaceful protests night after night: Memphis, Tennessee. Given that Memphis is routinely listed among the countryÂ’s most dangerous cities, it is hardly a place one would expect to escape the scourge of violence....

    I missed this when it was published Thursday. The Washington Post’s Philip Bump did a fact-check of sorts on a claim made by President Trump: “You hear about certain places like Chicago and you hear about what’s going on in Detroit and other — other cities, all Democrat run,” he said. “Every one of them is Democrat run. Twenty out of 20. The 20 worst, the 20 most dangerous are Democrat run.” It’s not clear how Trump is defining “most dangerous” in this context. So let’s look at two related sets of data compiled by the FBI: most violent...

    There are reports that police are bracing for possible violence tonight in the affluent Memphis suburbs. Memphis and Germantown police tell KWAM there are fears ANTIFA thugs and other leftist groups might be targeting suburban areas. Crews were busy over the weekend boarding up the front of the Apple store in the Shops of Saddle Creek. A security officer told a KWAM staffer that anyone not shopping had to leave the premises. At least four Germantown police cruisers were also seen patrolling the streets around the upscale shopping district and another police car was stationed in the parking lot.

    A day after the Tennessee Democratic Party voted to remove Memphis Rep. John DeBerry from the party's Aug. 6 primary ballot, the legislator hit back at the party, saying it no longer valued a diversity of ideas. “The so-called party of inclusion is everything but inclusive. It’s all about thinking with one brain, marching in step and following the company line, sitting there like a brainless idiot and letting them tell you what to do,” he said in an interview Thursday morning. In recent years, DeBerry, who represents District 90 - a gerrymandered district that weaves from north of Interstate...

    This morning I was awakened by the Civil Defense sirens and my phone going off with alerts. Tornado Warning for Memphis. I immediately jumped into action and did the usual thing - I went outside to see how bad it was. I was caught up by the wind and carried to the top of an ancient Hickory tree in the yard. Its at least 80 ft tall. I was surprised to find that my cell phone service and the view were both amazing. My girlfriend came to the rescue. She was yelling "Jump, I'll catch you".

    A thousand miles from Newark, in a tiny old school building tucked behind a Christian church, Cary Booker delivered the bad news. It was spring of 2011, and Omni Prep Academy, the Tennessee charter school co-founded and led by U.S. Sen. Cory Booker’s older brother, could no longer pay its kindergarten and first-grade teachers, the elder Booker announced, according to former teachers who were in the room. The financial woes weren’t a shock — when the school opened the previous fall it provided no books, no curriculum and almost no training for its novice educators, former teachers said in interviews...
