Conservative Activist’s Harvard Admission Revoked When Racist Messages Surface
Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of the Parkland school shooting who then became a gun rights activist popular in conservative circles, announced that Harvard University rescinded his admission after old racist messages he wrote resurfaced this spring. Kashuv and his supporters have said that the school’s response to his two-year-old writings is unfair, claiming that he has changed since then and deserves forgiveness. But others say the apologies of the former Turning Point USA activist ring false, and that a private institution is within its rights to select its community members as it sees fit.

Ed Asner On Playing God
Ed Asner’s list of legendary roles is long: the curmudgeonly news boss on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and on his own, "Lou Grant;" Santa from Will Ferrel's "Elf," or the crotchedy old man he voiced in "UP." Of course, those are just a handful of more than 600 stage, film and television roles Asner has played over his nearly 60-year career, netting him five Golden Globes, more Emmys than any other male actor ever, and a 2001 Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award. There is a new documentary about his life, and he's on tour with two different stage productions now, including portraying God in a new political comedy called "God Help Us!"

It’s not uncommon to see them lurking in city alleyways or scurrying between dumpsters, but it turns out rats like suburban living, too. Tina Martin has more.
