The Lead: Summit of the Americas

The Summit of the Americas began on Monday in Los Angeles but it is not going smoothly. 

This year the United States was able to set the guest list given that they are the host. The Biden administration chose to exclude certain countries that didn't live up to America's "democratic" standards and that did not go over well. The President of Mexico, who was originally scheduled to attend, decided not to at the last minute in protest of the exclusions. 

The U.S. did not invite leaders from Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela due to its concerns about democracy in those nations. Also, the President of Venezuela is under indictment in the U.S. so it is unclear how he would have come anyway. 

Mexican President López Obrador said, “There cannot be a summit if all countries are not invited."

Other participants are accusing the U.S. of phoning it in for this summit and saying that it is indicative of the U.S. lack of focus on Latin America. 

Chaos in Nigeria

An awful massacre happened on Sunday in Nigeria when several gunmen barricaded inside a Catholic Church and opened fire, killing at least 50. 

The church was Catholic but the service at the time of the shooting was Pentecostal. Nigeria has had a problem with militant Islam as of late but this attack was in Ondo, which is known as one of Nigeria’s more peaceful states. 

Details of this attack are horrific. The Associated Press reports that the gunmen locked the church doors but also stationed attackers outside of the building to shoot anyone who might escape. The victims include the elderly and children.

Take a Closer Look at the Bill

You may notice fees on your restaurant bill for things like “noncash adjustment,” “fuel surcharge” or “kitchen appreciation.” What are these charges? 

They are creative ways to say: Inflation

The Wall Street Journal reports that restaurants have had to get creative in passing down the higher costs of doing business to their customers. Raising prices is just not going to cut it. 

Macaroni Grill’s website admits that the restaurant will be adding a $2 fee to every bill “to offset macroeconomic pressures.” It makes you think twice about going out for just one drink if your inflation fee is flat, doesn’t it? 

Will these fees cut into servers’ tips? TBD. If you can afford not to stiff your waiter, try not to!  

Pop Gun

Movie theaters are worried that they may run out of popcorn this summer, just when people are coming back to theaters for the summer blockbuster season. 

Great Scott! 

Not only have farmers not been able to supply the same amount of kernels, the actual popcorn containers are also in short supply because, according to the Wall Street Journal, the “sheen linings that keep butter grease from seeping out are in short supply.” 

Well, allow me to offer this solution. Since I have three children and buying them each a tub of popcorn costs about the same as a week’s worth of groceries, I buy one large tub of popcorn and bring reusable snack bags for the children to use to divvy it up. The bags do not seep grease and are not single-use. I *may* also sneak in a bag of M&M’s to add to said bags. It’s a victimless crime. 

News By The Numbers

Double. That is how much gas prices have gone up since President Biden took office.

800%. That is how much more funding the UN needs for climate disasters than it needed 20 years ago.
