Can we all agree that the longer Donald Trump remains the front runner the better the Democrats feel? It will be a lot of fun watching him report for jury duty.

Can we all agree that while we may not understand the reasons behind  China’s  moves, the phrase ‘currency war’ can’t be good?

Can we all agree that when the EPA pollutes a river with toxic waste it sort of hurts their image as a protector of the environment? The good news is, they have called attention to a serious problem.

Can we all agree that the folks at Coca-Cola are not fooling consumers when they try to convince us that a ‘healthy diet’ includes their drink?

Can we all agree that another round of negotiations over Greek debt is just more of yesterday’s news?

Can we all agree that whether you agree with him or not, we are all saddened by news of Jimmy Carter’s cancer diagnosis? Likewise with Boston Red Sox Manager John Farrell.

Can we all agree that, despite what Marco Rubio thinks, opening the US embassy in Havana is the right move?

Can we all agree that there is a certain symmetry when NBC officially fires Donald Trump and Jimmy Fallon signs a six year contract extension in the same week?

Can we all agree that while we are alarmed at news that ISIS may be using mustard gas, nothing really surprises us about their tactics?

Can we all agree the NFL had a pretty bad week? A 49er gets kicked off the team for his third DUI violation: A reserve linebacker punches a starting quarterback: the daughter of a Hall of Fame inductee is not allowed to speak at her father’s posthumous induction and the league CEO is raked over the coals by  New York judge. Oh, and three teams are trying to blackmail their host cities by threatening to move to LA?
