Craig Calcaterra, NBC Sports: the degree and intensity of patriotic display at sporting events has been dramatically ratcheted up since September 11, 2001. The big flags, the addition of "God Bless America" and the incorporation of the military into nearly every aspect of the promotion of the game. The impulse to do so was obvious and understandable, just as other patriotic displays in times of war, peril and tragedy are. The reasons for it make perfect sense and the escalation of conspicuous patriotism at the ballpark is unmistakable. Something else has happened over this same period, however. Patriotism has been transformed from something most Americans demonstrate out of natural national pride and personal motivation to something more ... performative. Often, something de rigueur. Unquestionably more political. read more

More than US$43 million was seized from an apartment building in Nigeria after the anti-corruption unit received a tip.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission received a tip from a whistleblower who reported suspicious activity when they noticed someone moving bags in and out of the apartment, according to a Facebook post.
Another source claimed that a "haggard" looking woman in "dirty clothes" sometimes appeared at the apartment building with multiple bags.
Andrew Sullivan: [E]verywhere you see not an excoriation of one of the worst campaigns in recent history, leading to the Trump nightmare, but an attempt to blame anyone or anything but [Hillary] Clinton herself for the epic fail. It wasn't Clinton's fault, we're told. It never is. It was the voters' -- those ungrateful, deplorable know-nothings! Their sexism defeated her (despite a majority of white women voting for Trump). A wave of misogyny defeated her (ditto). James Comey is to blame. Bernie Sanders's campaign -- because it highlighted her enmeshment with Wall Street, her brain-dead interventionism and her rapacious money-grubbing since she left the State Department -- was the problem. read more
