I don't know much of anything about Ariana Grande, but I think it was courageous and classy for her to return to Manchester, and you wouldn't be human if this didn't bring a tear to your eye, as a local high school choir is joined on stage by Grande:
The concert raised over $12 million for a Red Cross fund for the victims of the Manchester bombing, of which about $2.5 million was raised during the concert itself.
Of course, there was another terror-related event that others were talking about in England this weekend, a "crude" attack by three now-dead jihadists who attempted to run people over with a box truck, and then jumped out of the truck stabbing people with long knives. The police responded quickly, killing the terrorists, but what followed were many predictable reactions, by the British prime minister, by President Trump, by people saying the Brits need to carry guns, and so on.
At 6:45 AM (and again later in the show), we'll speak about the London attack and terrorism more broadly with foreign policy analyst Tom Rogan, as of recently a staff writer for the Washington Examiner (congrats, Tom!).
On a lighter note, the other day I took my 11-year-old daughter to the library this weekend. She was asked to sign her library card. She could sign her first name in cursive, but not her last name. It just confirmed the worries of our 7:06 AM guest, Suzanne Bowland, who's doing her part by teaching a cursive camp this summer (June 19-29, 9:30 AM - noon, at the Koebel Library in Centennial).
Here's a Denver Post article: http://www.denverpost.com/2017/05/30/cursive-in-schools/

And then there's this, in which Kathy Griffin says that "older white guys" are trying to silence her. And then she makes jokes that aren't funny.
