— FLAGS CRUSHED, TRASHED AT SEPT. 11 MEMORIAL
http://abc7chicago.com/news/flags-crushed-trashed-at-sept-11-memorial/1508111/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A Sept. 11 memorial was vandalized on a local college campus in Eagle Rock on the day of the terror attack’s 15th anniversary. On Saturday night, 2,997 American flags were placed in the quad of Occidental College by a student organization called Occidental College Republican Club. One flag was placed for each of the 9/11 victims who died. By early Sunday morning, the memorial was vandalized with flags found in the garbage and others destroyed. Posters shaming the victims of 9/11 were also found. Later that day, four students crushed and snapped several of the flags in half. Even after the flags were placed back in the ground, vandals returned to damage hundreds of them again. Students from the group were standing guard the rest of the day to protect the memorial. The school issued a statement to students and said that it plans to discipline those responsible for the crimes. The statement read in part: “We don’t yet know who is responsible for this incident, but the College is investigating and will take appropriate disciplinary action. If you have any information about this incident, please share that information with us at conduct@oxy.edu.”)

— Protest Planned for Donald Trump’s Bolingbrook Fundraiser  The date of the event has been pushed back to Sept. 19. – Scott Viau
http://patch.com/illinois/bolingbrook/protest-planned-donald-trumps-bolingbrook-fundraiser
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A protest is planned against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump when he visits the Bolingbrook Golf Club for a fundraiser Sept. 19. The fundraiser was originally scheduled for Sept. 12, but was pushed back, according to the Chicago Tribune. A Change.org petition to keep Trump out of Bolingbrook has also been created and currently has 1,132 supporters. Created by Suburban Families Against Hate, the petition states that “Trump does not represent the interests nor the values of families in the suburban community of Bolingbrook. It is an insult to invite a billionaire to raise funds in a middle-class, hard working, vibrant, and diverse community.” Bolingbrook resident Michael Manolakes said on the petition that Trump’s rhetoric incites violence. “Donald Trump is a man who regularly uses rhetoric that incites violence at his rallies, and he condones violence by his supporters against dissenters,” Manolakes said. “I do not wish to have him speak at a facility built and maintained by my tax dollars.” The protest will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19 at the Bolingbrook Golf Club, according to a Suburban Families Against Hate Facebook page. Tickets for Trump’s fundraiser are going as high as $250,000. For that, you get a photo op and a seat at a VIP table.)

— Why Aren’t Americans Buying Muscle Cars?  The Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and Ford Mustang appear to be receiving less consumer love. – AARON BROWNS
http://www.thedrive.com/muscle-cars/5167/why-arent-americans-buying-muscle-cars
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The thing is, no one truly needs a muscle car. The trio mentioned above are most commonly bought by consumers who are looking for a throwback car to the American icons of the 1960s and ’70s. Beyond that, today’s muscle cars are some of the most impressive cars that this country has ever produced. The last-generation Camaro 1LEs and Z28s were brutally-capable track cars, the current Mustang GT350 is mind-blowingly competent car both on track and any country backroad, and we’re pretty sure the Dodge Challenger Hellcat has enough power to light the ground beneath it on fire. Many of these cars are like absolutely nothing else in the industry in some very attractive ways. So why have Americans stepped back from them? Or have Americans even stepped back? Let us know what you think in the comments.)
