WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an urgent memo to the field of G.O.P.

Priebus called the candidates’ ongoing evisceration of Clinton “magnificent,” but expressed his concern that “no human beings, even an impressive group like yourselves, could possibly sustain such a high intensity of throbbing hatred for an entire year and a half.”

Comcast Calls Off Time Warner Cable Merger

COMCAST TWC MOBILE

Comcast has scrapped plans to merge with Time Warner Cable in a $45.2 billion deal that would have combined the country’s two largest cable and broadband providers, the companies said Friday.

The move comes two days after the Federal Communications Commission said it planned to oppose the deal, joining lawyers from the Justice Department who felt it would not help consumers. The FCC said it would issue a “hearing designation order” that would prolong the deal, making it more difficult and expensive for Comcast. On Friday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said the merger posed “unacceptable risk to competition and innovation.”

5-Year-Old Told to Cover Up for Exposing Her Shoulders

5-Year-Old Told to Cover Up for Exposing Her Shoulders
Jef Rouner’s 5-year-old daughter was forced to cover this dress, and put jeans on underneath, because it was in violation of the school’s dress code, he says.

I’m left wondering how bad things must be when a 5-year-old is accused of “breaking the rules” when she wears a sweet summer dress to school.  Someone’s mind is a bit out of whack.

A 5-year-old girl was forced to cover up her dress this week after she was told that her spaghetti straps were not in compliance with the school dress code, according to her father.

Jef Rouner, a writer for the Houston Press and author of Sleepers, Wake!, wrote a column on Wednesday describing how his daughter, who went to kindergarten on Monday wearing a dress with spaghetti straps, was made to cover her shoulders with a jacket and put a pair of jeans underneath her skirt. “It’s a very pretty dress, she’s worn it to school before,” Rouner tells Yahoo Parenting. “When she came out [of school covered up], I thought she had just been cold, but she said ‘no, spaghetti straps aren’t allowed.’ I thought, that’s shaming, and that’s wrong. It’s saying, ‘how you look is not appropriate,’ and she’s worn that dress to church.”

Passengers Treated, Released After Flight Diverts to Buffalo

 SkyWest jet lands safely after reported pressurization issue

SkyWest jet lands safely after reported pressurization issue

 CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) — A SkyWest airlines flight to Connecticut was diverted, descended steeply and made an emergency landing in New York on Wednesday after three passengers lost consciousness.
 The flight, carrying 75 passengers, departed from O’Hare International Airport in Chicago and had been bound for Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut. It landed at Buffalo Niagara International Airport in Buffalo at about 11:40 a.m.

A SkyWest spokeswoman initially reported that one passenger aboard Flight 5622, operating as United Express, lost consciousness and the pilots rapidly descended “out of an abundance of caution.”

But in a later statement, SkyWest spokeswoman Marissa Snow said new information from medical personnel confirmed that “a total of three passengers reported a loss of consciousness while on the flight.”

Mary Cunningham, a nurse at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut was on the flight. She told WTNH-TV she helped provide medical attention after the first woman passed out.

“We got her oxygen and as soon as she got on the oxygen she was alert, she came right back,” Cunningham said. “Then I went back to my seat after she was feeling better and they called me right back because the person sitting right behind her passed out.”

For nearly eight minutes, the plane descended at a very steep incline, dropping as fast as 7,000 feet per minute, flight tracking service FlightAware said.

“We dropped so fast that I didn’t know what was going to happen,” Larry Johnson of Danbury, Connecticut told WTNH. “I thought we were going to have to swim in the ocean or do something. All the movie thoughts are running through your head.”

SkyWest Inc., which is based in St. George, Utah, earlier had said the jet landed safely and a passenger received medical attention before being released.

An additional 15 adults and two children were evaluated upon landing, but none required treatment outside the airport, airport spokesman C. Douglas Hartmayer said.

“Anyone who said they didn’t feel well was treated at the gate,” he said.

In an earlier statement, Snow said in an email: “There were no reports before the unconscious passenger prior to the initiated descent, but I can’t speak to what may have been the specific cause of their feeling ill.”

“The passengers were evaluated by medical responders on the ground in Buffalo and were released; none were transported to the hospital,” Snow said.

The airline said it was making plans to transport the passengers to Hartford, Connecticut.

The Federal Aviation Administration said initial information indicated the Embraer E170 jet may have had a pressurization problem, but that turned out to be incorrect.

Snow said the plane’s oxygen masks did not release.

“After examination by maintenance personnel and local authorities, there have been no indications of a pressurization problem or other issues with the aircraft,” Snow said. “Our investigation is ongoing.”
