Today is Monday, August 28, the 240th day of 2017 in the Gregorian calendar, with 125 days remaining.

This is the 221st day of Donald Trump's presidency. There are 1,241 days remaining in his term, assuming he doesn't resign, is otherwise removed from office, or his unhinged, psychotic behavior results in the destruction of the republic.

What a difference 54 years can make... or not. Racism is still with us, and it remains within our institutions, as the courts and executive branch continue to chip away at voters rights and anti-discrimination laws. I remember what I felt as a nine year old watching King's speech, and contrast it to how I feel with the current administration and, frankly, it's demoralizing. It's not supposed to work like this. We acknowledge a problem, solve it, and move on. This past month feels like the country's been shoved into a time machine, and even with knowledge of the future, the path clearly marked for us, we're making the wrong decisions. All we can do is keep out heads down and keep pushing forward...

Hurricane Harvey's continues to batter Texas with destruction on a biblical scale. The nation's fourth largest city is now more or less an extension of the Gulf of Mexico, and forecasts indicate another two or more feet of rain in the next three days. It will take years and cost billions to recover. Why tropical storm harvey is showing Texas no mercy.

Trump plugs extremist book, promotes himself, and lies about the wall- while Houston drowns.

There's evil in the world that's unrepentant, and I've experienced it firsthand. Arpaio being pardoned is a nightmare come true.

Two schools in Mississippi- and a lesson in race and inequality in America.

Alaska’s permafrost is thawing. The loss of frozen ground in Arctic regions is a striking result of climate change. And it is also a cause of more warming to come.
