LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Talk about your income inequality
As Donald Trump flies all over the country in his own 747 jetliner begging for votes, there are thousands of 5-year-old children all over the country who don’t have their very own tricycle to ride around the block. That’s income inequality, folks. Right here in our very own country....

Stanley Crouch: Trappings of the quick hero
Ted Cruz being victorious in the Iowa Republican caucus over the most famous billionaire in this country shook the ground, as if something almost magical not only took place, but took the place apart. It led Cruz to make a nearly rational victory address, Donald Trump to display his...

Susan Stamper Brown: Why I cannot support Trump
How any female in America could support Donald Trump, the American version of former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, is beyond me. Call me old school, but I have a real problem electing a man to public office who the Washington Post reported has a “Twitter feed and history of public comments”...

Christine Flowers: I can no longer support Palin
Sarah Palin has made me sad. I still like her more than most of the women who defend Planned Parenthood against charges of baby vivisection, and I most definitely like her more than Hillary Clinton, who would probably respond, “What difference does it make?” Yes, it’s worth...

Joseph Cotto: Why you should like Trump
Donald Trump represents more than a change of tone in presidential primary politics. He is redefining what it means to be a mainstream Republican. Some folks, namely those who have led the “conservative” movement to its present low, are unhappy with this. Late last week, editors...

Bob Franken: The similar dissimilar disrupters
What do Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have in common? That’s a question that will cause supporters for each of them to go berserk and be furious at anybody who would dare suggest any sort of equivalence. But like it or not, there are parallels; the most obvious one is that they’ve...

Joseph Cotto: Why Donald Trump’s success makes sense
Donald Trump has not been deterred, much to the chagrin of his bipartisan troupe of naysayers. The Donald’s blunt stance on Muslim immigration has only won him popularity among the Republican rank-and-file, not to mention independents and moderate Democrats. No shortage of smartest-men-and-women-in-the-room...

Bob Franken: The Teflon Don(ald)
