But first, speaking of Trump: Having trouble getting your life together after losing an hour of sleep to daylight saving time? The president thinks ditching the practice is an "OK" idea.
Same Boeing 737 model, same tragic outcome
A number of questions remain about Boeing’s 737 MAX 8 aircraft, the plane involved in an Ethiopian Airlines flight that nosedived into the ground Sunday, killing all 157 on board. The accident evoked the Oct. 29 crash of a Lion Air plane that plunged into the Java Sea near Indonesia, killing all 189 aboard. As investigators pour over the shattered plane’s remains to determine the cause of the crash, more than a dozen airlines worldwide have grounded the 737 Max 8, one of Boeing's newest jets. But experts warn that it's too early to link the Ethiopian Airline and Lion Air crashes.

Trump rolled out his 2020 budget proposal Monday with a $4.75 trillion price tag. The proposal included an $8.6 billion request for his border wall, just weeks after Congress rejected his demand for $5.7 billion. Democrats refused it before his budget was even delivered. Trump’s proposal also called for deep cuts in environmental and safety net programs as well as billions more in Defense Department spending. Trump has proposed many of those changes before, without much success.
TL;DR: Trump won't quit on his long-promised border wall, wants more military spending and hopes to slash just about everything else.

She smeared a nerve agent on Kim Jong Un's brother. Now she's free.
An Indonesian woman held two years on suspicion of killing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s half brother was freed Monday after a murder charge against her was dropped. Siti Aisyah hugged her Vietnamese co-defendant, Doan Thi Huong, before being ushered away in an embassy car. The two women were accused of smearing VX nerve agent on Kim Jong Nam’s face at a Malaysian airport in 2017, leading to his death. The women thought it was part of a TV show prank, they said.
What's VX nerve agent? The most lethal of nerve agents, classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations.
Dems <3 Milwaukee
Milwaukee will host the coveted Democratic National Convention in 2020 – the first major-party convention in Milwaukee's history and Democrats' first Midwestern convention since 1996 in Chicago. With a dozen-plus Democrats likely vying for the party's presidential nomination, the road to Cream City will certainly be crowded.
Repeat after me (slowly): Galle-ono-saurus 🦕
Imagine the wilds of Australia with deadly snakes and other freaky (cool) animals running around. Now picture dinosaurs the size of wallabies running around, too. That's what the Down Under was like around 125 million years ago, according to a new fossil report. The "Galleonosaurus dorisae" is the first dinosaur of its kind found southeast of Melbourne in over a decade, per a Journal of Paleontology report published Monday. The little guys were "agile runners." At just over two feet tall, they were about the size of a wallaby but didn't look much like the furry animals.
