Good Morning, it’s 20 March 2018  and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

An explosive device went off at a Fedex facility outside of San Antonio overnight. This explosion is being investigated as one that  could be a part of pattern of explosions that have gone off the last few weeks in Austin, Texas. State and federal authorities are investigating as the region is on edge. The Fedex explosion was the firth one in the area in recent weeks.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman is in Washington for a visit with President Trump and embattled Presidential Aide Jared Kushner. The prince, known as “MBS”, has advanced sweeping and radical cultural changes in Saudi Arabia. He’s in America to talk about investment opportunities as Saudi Arabia transitions from a socialist state(the government pays for everything) based on the country’s oil wealth to a more modern economic model not centered on oil.

Facebook lost $40 billion in market value yesterday after it was disclosed that the company was involved in a massive data breach that involved the profiles of 50 million Facebook users; the profiles were used and manipulated by Cambridge Analytica, a company deeply involved in engineering the election of President Donald Trump in 2016. The Facebook rout precipitated a tech sell off as Wall Street wakes up to the realization that huge social media companies are not necessarily trustworthy with their data assets or how these assets are deployed/used. Not sure if anyone at Facebook “likes” what’s going on at the social  media giant.

Time to reset your NCAA brackets after perhaps the great weekend of opening round upsets ever. Check the scores out at SI.COM’s live bracket. 

Today is the first day of Spring. Enjoy it…or, if you in the northeast, don’t put away your snow shovels quite yet. Looks like another nor’easter is on the way, with 5 to 9 inches in New York City, and snow south to Washington and North to Boston. The official start of Spring is at 12:15PM Eastern. Happy Spring.

The NCAA tournament this year is a minefield for top seeded teams. Yesterday, Number 1 Xavier lost to Florida State, UNC lost (big) to Texas A&M, Syracuse beat one of the pre-tournament favs, Michigan State (Syracuse had to play their way into the tournament…now they’re in the Sweet 16), Cinderella team UMBC lost to Kansas State, Clemson upset Auburn and on and on and on. Everyone’s bracket is busted, so don’t feel bad, enjoy the Madness. Check the scores out at SI.COM’s live bracket. 

The usual suspects will say the usual things today in Washington, as the town ramps up for another week of deception, confrontation, recriminations, and inept management of government. Really–can’t we do better than this?

Today is National Let’s Laugh Day. You know what to do: tell a good joke or listen to one. Everyone needs a good laugh today.
