    On today’s show: It is the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend – 2016! This is the emotional beginning of summer and a lot of people are traveling! Monday is Memorial Day – it’s a federal holiday for remembering the men and women who died while serving our country. Many people visit cemeteries to honor those who died in military service to this country. Many go to the beach and many go buy something at a Memorial Day Weekend Sale! All of that is fine – as long as we all take time to remember WHY we have the long holiday weekend. Should everyone – even those heading to the beaches – take time to think about WHY they have this long holiday weekend? Will you? Do parents talk to their kids about the meaning of this weekend? THEN: The president of Baylor University – the country’s largest Baptist school – has been demoted and the football coach has been fired following an investigation that showed the school failed to properly handle reports of rape and sexual assault. The president of Baylor was Kenneth Starr! Kenneth Starr was the independent counsel who investigated President Clinton’s sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky and Whitewater. The man who led the investigation into Bill Clinton’s sex scandal failed to properly investigate reports of rape and inappropriate sex while president of Baylor! This is not the first time this has happened. Why are reports of sexual assault sometimes not taken seriously? And when sexual assault cases are not properly investigated and football players are involved – does this further prove that the emphasis on sports and entertainment is skewed? 1pm Poll: Is sexual assault in America more prevalent today or just more reported? AND: The NYPD Commissioner blamed a fatal shooting at a concert this week on the rap artist. He said these “so-called rap artists, who are basically thugs that basically celebrate violence.” Tell us why you think he is right wrong! But violence at concerts is nothing new. 2pm Poll: Is there a difference between a fatal shooting at a rap concert in 2016 and a fatal stabbing during a Rolling Stones performance in 1969? THEN: the Louisiana legislature approved a bill that doubles the fine for not wearing a seatbelt. Do you think it will actually make a difference?
