‘PS 120 in Flushing held a carnival for its students on Thursday, but kids whose parents did not pay $10 were forced to sit in the auditorium while their classmates had a blast’.
‘Close to 900 kids went to the Queens schoolyard affair, with pre-K-to-fifth-grade classes taking turns, each spending 45 minutes outside’.
‘But more than 100 disappointed kids were herded into the darkened auditorium to just sit or watch an old Disney movie while aides supervised — the music, shouts and laughter outside still audible’.
‘Kids whose parents weren’t able to pay the $10 admissions fee sit out the carnival in the school’s auditorium’.
‘The must-pay rule excluded some of the poorest kids at the elementary, where most parents are Chinese immigrant families crammed into apartments and “struggling to keep their heads above water,” staffers said’.
“It’s breaking my heart that there are kids inside,” one teacher said’.
‘The teacher hugged a 7-year-old girl who was “crying hysterically.”
“She was the only one from her class who couldn’t go, so she was very upset,” the teacher said’.

‘FactCheck.Org drowned Republicans’ flaming hopes on Friday, announcing, “The Republican National Committee thinks it has the smoking gun that proves Hillary Clinton used “multiple secret email addresses” as secretary of state. It doesn’t.”
‘Here’s the story’.
‘The Republican National Committee histrionically announced to the world on May 18 that they had Hillary Clinton now because her published emails (New York Times) showed two accounts (email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.) and she said she only had one while in office’!
‘You see, they cried, she had “email@example.com” while she was Secretary of State! GOTCHA!!!! We win 2016 even without a good candidate!!!’
‘Clinton has an explanation that sorta makes a lot of sense, at least to the guy who invented email, and let’s face it, he’s probably better at email technology than the RNC or Speaker Boehenr’s office, if history is any indicator’.
“But the Clinton campaign says there is a simple explanation for this apparent discrepancy”:
“The emails published by the Times were printed out in 2014 after Clinton had left the State Department and after she had changed her email address, so the printed copies of emails she sent while in office display her new address (firstname.lastname@example.org), even though they were originally sent under her old address (email@example.com). We agree that this is possible”.
“We at FactCheck.org also tested Clinton’s explanation. Our IT staff created firstname.lastname@example.org and renamed it email@example.com. An email sent by firstname.lastname@example.org printed out as if it had come from email@example.com after we changed the name of the email account”.
“What we do know, however, is that the emails posted by the Times do not support the RNC’s claim that Clinton had “multiple secret email addresses” as secretary of state, and there is no evidence to contradict Clinton’s claim that she created firstname.lastname@example.org after she left office”.
