TRUMP: Full of gas

August 15, 2018 at 5:00 am

SHOLEH: Point to ponder

August 15, 2018 at 5:00 am

Sholeh Patrick’s column on class included the idea that “we subconsciously dehumanize others first, then find justifying reasons.” That statement immediately drew my attention to how that is exhibited, even in relationships that are mentall...

CLIMATE: Trust the experts

August 12, 2018 at 5:00 am

I note with interest Wednesday’s letter by Preston W. Wilson Jr. He complains about Cliff Harris and Randy Mann, but all he succeeds in doing is make himself look very uninformed. He says: “The planet is warming due to use of fossil fuels.”...
