The Failure that is Donald J Trump

    Dear Editor, We live in unprecedented times. Between a global pandemic and an unprecedented un-presidenting, the US is in the world spotlight.

A Memorial Day like no other

By Claudia Young Memorial Day Weekend, 2020, is one that is unlike the Memorial Days most of us have experienced. This huge difference is in part due to the pandemic as well as the hate mongering that is currently flourishing in our country.

I watched George Bush the Younger and Dick Cheney utterly botch Iraq. But in my lifetime I have never witnessed any US president botch anything so disastrous as Trump has botched the response to covid 19. I didn’t know so many mistakes were even possible and he just won’t stop. His coronavirus denial was ... Full Story
