    The first page of a newspaper is “prime” real estate. It’s where the most important stories are often found. That’s why it’s helpful to understand what’s behind those stories – because they matter. In some cases, a news story may not receive much attention but it matters because it's interesting. Those, too, are prime stories.
    Here’s some background on a “prime” story this week.
    Woke This Week?
    Summer may be a good time for sleeping
    Can You Be Your Own Judge?
    The investigation into whether anyone
    in or sleeping late but for some people, this summer is a timethe Trump campaign worked illegally with the Russians to be "woke."
    sway the election continues. Robert Mueller is the head of the investigation. Donald Trump has developed new meaningrepeatedly said no one in recent years, particularly on social media. It meanshis campaign did anything wrong but the investigation continues.
    Some of the findings indicate that people in the campaign including Donald Trump, Jr., Jeff Sessions, Jared Kushner (married
    to Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter) and others did in fact meet with Russians during the election campaign season. It will be aware about social issues, particularly as they relateup to racial injustice.
    It's hard
    the investigators to find exactly when slang termsdecide if those meetings were born but, according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, this one could be traced back to a song from 2008criminal in nature.
    This week, Mr. Trump began tweeting about "pardons." A pardon is
    when Erykah Badu wrote the lyric "stay woke" to mean being socially aware. Then,a judge or person in 2014, aftercharge forgives a person for a crime so that the shootingperson is not punished. Mr. Trump has said he can pardon anyone he wants and he also has mentioning pardoning himself.
    The Constitution does give the president vast powers
    of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO,pardoning but it does not say whether the term "stay woke" picked up speed and was used more frequently.
    So, this summer, what do you think about staying woke
    president can pardon himself. No president has ever tried to current events and social issues? School's out butdo that. There is a provision in our legal system that doesn't mean you don't keep learningsays a person cannot serve as his own judge, precisely because it would not make sense for anyone to decide his or reading. Which issues from the news doher own guilt or innocence. But now people are wondering if a president can pardon himself?
    you think are the most importantthat should be something a president can do if he commits a crime: to "stay woke" about? Why?let himself off the hook?
    Watch the news for more discussion of pardons.
