Reed Moore’s Daily Rundown

National LGBT Center Awareness Day

Today’s news celebrates these centers for providing an environment of advocacy, empowerment and support: Kellogg’s employees say some local Kellogg’s strikers are hit by buses, WOWT reports a lawsuit is filed against Boys Town related to inappropriate-touching allegations, and Rep. Jeff Fortenberry expects he’ll be indicted on allegations of lying to federal investigators.

Reed Moore realized that, in recent days, links to Fox 42 KPTM stories have not been working. Apologies!


Harper’s Index Facts of the Day

  1. Chance that an office space in Manhattan is available for lease: 1 in 5
  2. Percentage by which open-plan offices have been found to decrease face-to-face interactions: 70
