A short take on today’s news —
Ivanka Trump is leading a movement in the Trump White House to limit parent loans and wipe out all student loans after 180 months (15 years) of payment. I have seen far too many families compromised by excessive college debt assumed on behalf of children.

The scars of Charlottesville still weep.
The Mueller investigation might be winding down. Then again, maybe not.
