Re: “The authentic growth of Michelle Obama

Michelle is the embodiment of one of her husband's most powerful presidential qualities -- he knows how to make great choices.

Re: “Democratic endgame

A shameful article, full of vitriol, language that would suit a Trump. Like many others, I find Bernie Sanders' views not only refreshing but necessary in the political oligarchy the Republicans and Democrats are expecting us to believe is a modern, viable democracy. And, like most of my ilk, I will hold my nose and vote Democratic in November, simply because not doing so will benefit Trump.

Re: “Sweat equity: UA spending includes an $8 million football coaching staff

As student advisor at a large, state university on the West Coast in the Eighties, I presented a plan to host the Grateful Dead at our 20.000 seat stadium, complete with total cost and projected profit (which was very, very high).
The group considering the proposal loved it -- professors and administrators went for it in a big way. The Kampus Kop did not -- he hated drugs and feared an influx of hippies. The profs all waved him off. Then Coach blustered something about his dead body and everyone looked at their feet. "Oh, well," and "Guess that's that" they murmured and talked about the weather.
I think coaches are the waste product of a great culture. But hey, that's just me.

Re: “Conner Eldridge and John Boozman spar over whether Senate should consider a nominee for Supreme Court vacancy

It's refreshing to see the naked racism on display all across the fruited plain. Used to be, we were ashamed of such a display, but those days have passed. Now, when we're done with vilifying our Black President, how about a couple of signs saying "Irish need not apply" and "Eyetalians are not White People."
