Ukraine is virtually an “anything goes” zone for American entrepreneurs — as well as for people like the North Koreans. That idea has been reinforced by news reports that a Ukrainian factory sold North Korea rocket engines for intercontinental ballistic missiles, which Pyongyang wants to arm with nuclear warheads so it can threaten the United States as well as peace in its region.

    Tonight, after listening to President Trump’s National Security Adviser Gen. H.R McMasters, trying to answer PBS anchor Judy Woodruff’s question about what would it take for Trump to initiate a pre-emptive strike on North Korea, I was terrified by his answer or lack of an answer.

    In July, a Journal of the American Medical Association report that the brains of 110 of 111 deceased NFL players showed evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) — an incurable condition that leads to dementia, mental instability and depression — made national headlines. But what should have gotten more attention was the finding that the brains of 48 of 53 deceased college football players showed CTE. There are more than 750 colleges with football programs versus 30 NFL teams.

    Mikie Kerr expresses alarm in her Dec. 16 “Constitution Corner” column that George Washington University no longer requires its history majors to take even one semester of U.S. history or government. It is “worse” than you know, Miss Kerr.

This does not make the prospect even marginally less remote. And it has done little to inhibit the attempt by some conservatives to discredit the investigation.

    WASHINGTON — The tax bill the GOP is trying to foist on the country is not only an unfair and deficit-bloating hodgepodge written on the fly, it is also deeply corrupt. No matter how much they wring their hands ahead of time, all Republicans who vote for this bill will be joining their party’s festival of corruption.

    WASHINGTON — As the #MeToo movement gained momentum the past several weeks — and more than a dozen powerful men accused of sexual misconduct were suspended, fired or banished into the outer darkness, it was reasonable to wonder where it would all end.

    It’s a sad state of affairs when roughly one third of Americans don’t know the three branches of government, which are the executive, legislative and judicial, or have any idea how our system of checks and balances made America different from all other nations.

    This time of year, you look twice at the sketchy drug addict blocking the sidewalk in front of Starbucks. You give a second thought to the overly bundled elderly woman waiting in line at the food bank. You wonder what life would be like if that palsied kid in the trailer had medical attention.
