3. Humor Fix: “Here is just an unbelievable story. The White House has given permission for a company owned by the government of Dubai to run six U.S. ports including New York. Dubai is accused of helping to fund the September 11th attacks. And was one of only three countries to support the Taliban. Now they are going to run the port of New York. What’s next? Are we going to put Mexico in charge of immigration?” — Jay Leno.

4. My Way Fix: This Day In History here, Today’s Birthdays here, Positive Quote here, and Word of the Day here.

5. Top of the News Fix: Americans work more, accomplish less here, Suspect in killing spree was free on state error here, Iraq vet accused of stabbing wife 71 times here, South Dakota abortion bill targets Roe here, and Vindictive Trump makes Martha look good here.

6. Opinion Fix: William Bennett & Alan Dershowitz/Washington Post (A failure of the press), Donald Rumsfeld/L.A. Times (War in the information age), Thomas Lifson/The American Thinker (The Left’s coup d’etat at Harvard), Vali Nasr/New York Times (Ominous repercussions from the golden mosque), and U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum/Philadelphia Inquirer (Bush must say no to ports deal).
