Bad week for:
Inclusion and diversity, after the Charlotte, N.C., gay pride organization refused to let a “Gays for Trump” float participate in its summer parade, saying that group does not reflect “the values of our organization.”
Legal tender, after Jackson City, Mich., officials refused to accept a resident’s payment of a $270 fine because he made it in pennies. “We are not the servants of the city government,” fumed resident Brian McGonegal. “The city government is the servant of us.”
Ruses, after a Florida man was charged with abusing 911 when he called police for a ride to the parking lot of a Hooter’s restaurant, where he claimed his grandmother had suffered a stroke. Police found no grandma there.
