Down to D.C. from NYC to catch up with Jake Tapper on The Lead and get his take on “The Queen: The Epic Ambition of Hillary and the Coming of a Second ‘Clinton Era.'” Jake reads the books, so his questions will be pointed, but I suspect we will spend at least some time on the South Carolina killings.
Against the awful horror of the murders –the lives lost and families shattered, their setting in a house of prayer and an hour of prayer by a killer obviously welcomed by kind souls who must have seen him as troubled and even dangerous, but true to their callings as Christians to welcome even the demon-possessed and try to minister to them– here is a wonderful story from the other side of the spectrum. One of the Cleveland Indians, Mike Aviles, has a four year old daughter Adriana going through chemotherapy for her leukemia. Zack Meisel of the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Northeast Ohio Media Group takes it from there.
