2. The Senate, thanks to Mike Pence and a surprise show from John McCain, voted to begin debate on an Obamacare repeal bill. Which just seems like a waste of time. Wouldn’t it be better to focus on fixing Obamacare rather than repealing it? More here.

3. A woman was shot in Minneapolis because she slapped a police car. Police should be trained to not shoot innocent people just because they were surprised. More here.

4. A neurological brain disease, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), has been found in 99% of donated brains from deceased NFL players. That’s not good. More here.

5. Wildfires in France have forced a mass evacuation. More here.
