Welcome to Bad News Roundup, on what is typically the worst news day of the week, Wednesday. Wow, was it ever a bad day, right from the moment you woke up.
Let’s run down what has happened:
Bad news No. 1: House third-ranking Republican Congressman Steve Scalise among several people shot by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter today at a practice for tomorrow’s congressional baseball game. For his part, Sanders has denounced what has happened. Scalise is in critical condition.
Bad news No. 2: A massive inferno at a London apartment highrise has killed at least a dozen people.
Bad news No. 3: A shooting at UPS facility in San Francisco kills three people.
Bad news No. 4: Legendary Canadian Football League coach Don Matthews has died of cancer.
Bad news No. 5: Here is one of those stories that is sure to end as “bad news” regardless of what the final outcome is. I am talking, of course, about the Bill Cosby verdict watch.
Bad news No. 6: Sears.
Bad news No. 7: Finally, a story that really counts as bad news for only one individual: Donald Trump. “Mueller investigating Trump for obstruction of justice, Washington Post reports.”
Now that I have thought of it, this probably counts as yet more bad news for the people watching at home. The gong show continues.
I think that is all the bad news that fits for tonight.
