South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said Monday the Confederate flag should be removed from the grounds of the state capitol, reversing her position on the divisive symbol amid growing calls for it to be removed. The Republican’s about-face comes after nine black church members were gunned down, allegedly by a young white man who embraced the flag as a symbol of white supremacy. The flag has flown in front of the state capitol for 15 years after being moved from atop the Statehouse dome. U.S. Sens. Lindsay Graham and Tim Scott, an African-American appointed by Haley, were standing with Haley during her announcement. When she finished, she hugged Scott and South Carolina’s only other black congressman, Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn.

In the wake of the church shooting in Charleston, once again the debate over gun control rolls to the fore. Of course there have been other mass shootings, yet no discernable movement has come in regards to gun control, despite the urging of many. And once the national media rolled into Charleston, those confederate flags were noticed, and that too, given the racist element of the attack, is now drawing renewed scrutiny. Both issues with passionate defenders and detractors, and a wide divide between them.

Well, actually, maybe several of you already have. But on Capitol Hill, they still are. In fact this week, the strategy is to get the Senate to split their version of the bill into two pieces, the fast-track authority for the TPP, and the workers assistance TAA. If they do that, well the House has already approved the fast-track authority, so its done. However, Senate Democrats want to know for sure that if they allow this, the TAA part, the U.S. workers assistance package, will then also be approved by the House. The White House and the GOP says no problem. Dems aren’t so sure.

Investigators tracking two murder convicts who escaped from a northern New York prison scoured a rural area near the Pennsylvania border Sunday, saying an unconfirmed but credible report of a sighting had shifted the search across the state. About 300 law enforcement officers searched the neighboring towns of Amity and Friendship, a mountainous, rural area 350 miles from the prison, as two men who resembled the convicts were spotted Saturday near a railroad line that runs along a county road. The two convicts have now been on the lam for over two weeks.

NBC made it official. Brian Williams will not return to his job as “Nightly News” anchor following his suspension for misrepresenting himself, but will be given a second chance with the company as a breaking news anchor at the cable network MSNBC. Williams said he was sorry for saying things that weren’t true, and apologized to colleagues and viewers. But the damage was done. He’s recorded an interview with Matt Lauer, which will air Friday morning on The Today Show. Lester Holt, who has been subbing for Williams since his suspension in February, will officially take over as anchor at “Nightly News.”
