Trump: America’s slow-moving cancer


For those who are familiar with a cancer diagnosis, there are stages of any cancer. Depending upon the prognosis, your doctor can design treatments to strike against America’s egalitarian killer.

A Stunning Defeat


I attended what was thought to be an election victory cocktail party for Hillary Clinton. The jovial mood over several hours turned into that of a wake and finally a funeral.
