Quick Takes on a Friday

The craziness at America’s higher education institutions continues to amaze….

A student group at Duquesne University fears that a Chick-fil-A will endanger their ‘safe spaces’ and is asking the University to ban them from campus.  The fear of the chicken sandwich is apparently real.


After reports that former UN Ambassador and National Security chief Susan Rice submitted a number of special requests to go around procedures to keep secret the names of US citizens that intelligence agencies had inadvertently spied upon (see my earlier blog post from Tuesday, April 11), the House Intelligence Committee is formally looking into the matter and questioning if Rice used her government position for political purposes since most of the names she requested were Trump campaign officials.


And finally, President Trump yesterday signed a bill that would allow states to spend federal grants the way that they wish, and overturned an Obama-era mandate that they not be able to restrict those government funds from going to Planned Parenthood.   The measure does not change funding but lifts the restrictions the federal government had previously placed on the states.
