I’m not crying…you are: Sully the service dog, who worked with former President George W. Bush, lies next to Bush’s casket in a picture posted by Bush’s spokesperson with the caption “mission complete.” Sully will accompany Bush’s casket to Washington where it will lie in state at the U.S Capitol.

Executive summary: Prop. 2 won’t be the first voter-approved ballot initiative that the Utah Legislature has undone. Women candidates gained ground in Utah in the 2018 midterms. The U.S. and China call for a cease-fire in their trade war.
