    As a pilot, I’ve been to Japan many times and am proud to have flown some of the first relief flights after the Fukushima disaster. Last June, I went as a tourist with family and friends. I was content to let others determine our itinerary, except that I knew I wanted to visit Hiroshima. We arrived by train in the afternoon, then took a bus to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, where the first atomic bomb exploded 600 meters above the Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall, now known as the A-Bomb Dome. “Little Boy” was set to detonate at that altitude to maximize its destructive force. In less time than it’s taken to read these words, 140,000 souls were vaporized, incinerated or died other unimaginably horrifying deaths. The memorial, while serenely beautiful, is also educational. At the adjacent museum one can learn of a horror that’s impossible to comprehend, that threatens us all even more today.

    WASHINGTON — Donald Trump began August 2, 2016, no doubt, determined to follow the advice of family and advisers to avoid fueling his own controversies and focus on Hillary Clinton’s manifold failures.

    It is not enough to succeed, Gore Vidal once said; others must fail. As presidential nominee Hillary Clinton enjoys a bump in her polls after the Democratic National Convention, she’s getting a boost from her Republican opponent Donald Trump’s epic fails.

    I’m writing in response to Mr. McClure’s letter to the editor on July 31 regarding Colorado’s experience with legalized marijuana. It must have been a shock for him to return to Denver after almost 30 years and find that the place had changed. My husband and I moved from Denver to Waikoloa Village 20 years ago but have been visiting almost every year since to see family and friends.

    Anyone who occasionally reads a newspaper, turns on a TV or a radio has already been made aware of the hacked emails of the Democratic National Committee. I purposely say “made aware of” rather than “informed. It’s been all over the news but what is it that you know? Unless you’ve been paying above average attention, all you know is that the Russians hacked into the DNC emails, Donald Trump is happy, and Democrats are outraged at both the Russians and at Trump.

    WASHINGTON — To gauge the opportunism and hypocrisy that define Donald Trump’s Republican Party, consider this: Imagine the scalding rhetoric that would have boiled from the likes of Newt Gingrich, that Metternich of many green rooms, if Hillary Clinton had offhandedly undermined the collective security architecture of U.S. foreign policy since NATO was created in 1949.

    Is Tulsi too focused on stardom?

    Watching the Democrats’ smoothly staged, potently scripted convention last week, voters could easily think that Hillary Clinton has this election in the bag.
