    The wages of civil war within GOP

    Steven and Cokie Roberts: President Trump says many things that are wildly exaggerated or flat-out false, but he told one of his biggest whoppers at a recent White House press conference.

    Putting gun rights over public safety

    Gun money and politics
    A Barrington letter to the editor: Kudos to the people who showed up to protest the Lake County GOP’s auction of guns last Friday, where they were auctioning off — among other weapons — a semiautomatic like the one used to kill 58 people and wound almost 500 more in Las Vegas just two weeks earlier.

    Fortunately, these soldiers lost the war
    A Wheaton letter to the editor: While I doubt that you could find even one living American veteran who would say that they fought to preserve the right of police to brutalize people of color and to preserve a lower standard of opportunity for African Americans, it is worth remembering that in the 19th Century there were soldiers in America who fought and died for exactly those principles. Fortunately, they lost the Civil War.
