Cosmopolitan with a twist

WASHINGTON -- What better way to usher in the hissingly hot dog days of summer, otherwise known as August, than with a high-wire verbal duel between CNN senior White House correspondent (and well-known cosmopolitan) Jim Acosta and White House sniper (and senior adviser) Stephen Miller.

Writer disagrees with cartoon

At last, the United States is making a stand against South Korea's determination to have nuclear weapons that will reach the United States. The cartoon by Gary Markstein in the Chronicle on 8/4/17 leads one to believe that Markstein could sympathize with Kim Jong Un.

We all get angry driving on the interstate, passing cars with texting ...

About halfway through my morning run, just about the time droplets of "dew" were running down my face and I wasn't looking none too good for the wearing, a red Ford Ranger pick-up truck pulled up beside me, stopped and a man, gray in hair and weathered in face, rolled down his window.
