Letter: Things aren't going so well under President Trump
This election and the ensuing train wreck has had a numbing effect on our nation and the world. At 82 years old and a political junky since the start of World War Two, I have never seen a period so devoid of optimism for the future. This, despite the fact we have entered the most...

"Has the 2016 election changed our perception of truth?" This is the 25th annual Great American Think-Off question — a heavy-hitter in that it not only addresses the 2016 election for timely relevance, but also tackles the timeless and elusive concept of truth. The Great American...

Letter: Why does Trump spend so much time demonizing the working press?
