From the Lefthand Corner: Trump's downward slide
The Minneapolis Trib had a lead guest editorial a couple weeks ago on, what else? President Trump. It was entitled, "My president? Yes. My leader? No." It was about the first six months of the Trump presidency. What else?

Letter to the editor: Long on division, short on dignity
The emperor may have clothes, but he hasn't shown dignity, or much of anything else of value to his country and the world. Columnist Pete Abler's piece, "Long division," highlights the widening of major divisions between societal and political viewpoints, beginning at least since...

As I See It: Long division
"CBS Sunday Morning" had a great segment on its June 18 show. It covered a lot of political and social ground in asking many questions related to when the major divisions in our country really started and what is going on today that is fueling the fires. And the most surprising aspect...

Letter to the Editor: Political dishonesty
The same ol', same ol' out of the liberals. The Republicans are going to destroy America. Donald Trump is going to destroy America. Eight years this country suffered under failed economic policy, failed diplomatic policy, failed domestic policy. And yet Democrats and their fringe...

As I See It: Hope and change for 2017 and beyond
If I thought I was sick of the endless, over-the-top campaigning and rhetoric prior to the election and that the continuing nausea was going to quickly disappear on Nov. 9, I was sadly mistaken. I am truly disappointed and nearly just as sick now with the crying, hand-wringing and...

As I see it: Top 10 questions for presidential debates
As David Letterman and his show aged, the only feature I still enjoyed was his Top 10 Lists. At times they could be sophomoric or banal, but many times they were quite imaginative and entertaining. I even came up with my own Top 10 Reasons for Retiring from the USAF twenty-two years...

From the Lefthand Corner: Sensible side of presidential choice in 2016
We are down to two choices for president of our United States in November 2016 (unless some miraculous Republican event occurs). Republicans have apparently selected Donald Trump and Democrats have seemingly settled on Hillary Clinton. While we'll certainly hear it all over again...

From the Left Hand Corner: Presidential race is on
It is no surprise that Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for president of the United States on Sunday. The race is on. Actually, it has already been going on for some months, if not years. Lesser candidates such as Scott Walker, from neighboring Wisconsin, have already announced,...
