Dad Daze: United we stand as a family and a nation

After receiving a number of letters from readers responding to last week's column, which was about keeping the family together despite all the political tumult, one word came to mind: unity.

Against backdrop of controversy, Red Sox honored by Trump

President Donald Trump honored the World Series champion Boston Red Sox – well, some of them – at the White House on Thursday, but made no mention of the controversy that shadowed the visit. Nearly a dozen members of the team, all players of color, skipped the opportunity to shake Trump’s hand. The Red Sox repeatedly denied that there was any sort of racial divide caused by the White House visit. And there was no sign of discord during the rained-upon ceremony on the White House South Lawn.

Shaking off criticism from House Republicans, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer declared under oath Wednesday that Trump knew ahead of time and embraced the news when told that WikiLeaks had emails damaging to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Michael Cohen also testified that Trump is a “racist,” a “conman” and a “cheat.”

Trump says the pardon will “correct a wrong that occurred in our history” and “honor a truly legendary boxing champion.”

Stand or stay out of sight: NFL takes on anthem protesters

NFL owners have approved a new policy aimed at addressing the firestorm over national anthem protests, permitting players to stay in the locker room during the “The Star-Spangled Banner” but requiring them to stand if they come to the field. The decision was reached after several hours of discussions at the league’s spring meeting in Atlanta. The NFL Players Association says it wasn’t part of the talks and will challenge any change that violates the collective bargaining agreement.
