Acquittal! The United States Senate failed to convict former President Trump on incitement of insurrection charges after his second impeachment trial. A two-thirds majority vote was needed to find him guilty and potentially bar him from holding any future federal public office. The Democratic House Managers fell short of their goal by 10 votes. Are President Trump's troubles over? Do you think he will run again in 2024? Should he?

Ethnomathematics. Oregon wants the state’s middle school teachers to take a class called “Pathway to Math Equity Micro-Course,” the purpose of which is to dismantle racism in mathematics.

Does this sound like a good idea to you?

Melissa DeRosa, Secretary to the Governor, said Cuomo was concerned about an announced Department of Justice investigation into the nursing home deaths. Should Cuomo resign?
