  • Bill Cosby has resigned from Temple University's Board of Trustees.
  • "President Barack Obama spoke forcefully on Monday about using his last two years in office to take on the problems of race and policing illustrated by the controversy in Ferguson, but—for now—he has offered policy solutions that fall short of what activists have demanded."
  • President Obama is reportedly considering whether to open a new front in the air war against ISIS in order to create a "safe zone" for rebel forces.
  • St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar claims that the St. Louis Rams organization has apologized for the actions of five players who raised their hands in a Ferguson-inspired protest before Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. But Keven Demoff, the executive vice president of football operations for the Rams, has denied making any such apology. "I do believe that supporting our players' First Amendment rights and supporting local law enforcement are not mutually exclusive," Demoff told the Associated Press.
