THE MORNING LINE Here it is, Broadway for Orlando's What the World Needs Now is Love. It may make you cry, but it's the perfect antidote to last week.

Fact-checking? Sadly, not a growth industry, while needed more than ever. Climate Feedback provides legit commentary, from scientists around the world, about online climate change coverage. Please expand into chyron territory for cable.

If you're of a certain age, the words Indian Point don't inspire a lot of confidence. Less than 50 miles from NYC and over 50 years old, this reactor has had such a long, screwed-up safety history that it is time to put the old (night)mare out to pasture. While we're at it, it would be nice to see the last of Entergy, the stewards of this mess.
