President Biden's declaration that he'll  nominate by the end of February a black woman to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the seat that Justice Stephen Bryer will have vacated by his retirement. 

What's your take on how Biden is handling this?

William "Roddie" Bryan, the third member of the posse that chased Arbery and cornered him as he jogged through their neighborhood outside Brunswick, Ga., was not included in the plea deal, which Arbery's parents, Wanda Cooper Jones and Marcus Arbery, said they are "vehemently" against.

What is your initial reaction to the purported plea deals?

Is this the start of the Trump takedown? The beginning of Trump's inglorious end?
There's a growing consensus in ex-President Donald J. Trump's camp, sources say, that he should lay low while various law-enforcement and legal entities have him in their sights. Will he take heed?

Donald Trump, reeling out of control and following the chaotic dictates of his frazzled mind, continues to wreak havoc and create disorder as he tests the limits of his outrageous conduct.
