    PHILADELPHIA — New York’s late Gov. Mario Cuomo used to say, “We campaign in poetry, we govern in prose.” That line’s been quoted quite a bit these days. We like to talk about things we miss — and poetry in politics is one of them.

    Again the house of spin lives. Gail Rice says everything Trump loves to say, and she believes it. I can’t believe that she really believes what she is saying, without proof. First the gloom and doom speech about how Trump is picked on by liberals. I am glad she was happy with the convention where the gloom and doom crowd continues to spread lies.

    Two score and two years ago, we figured it was not just shocking — but an impeachable offense — when we heard the so-called smoking gun tape recording of our Republican president, Richard Nixon, planning to cover up the fact that his top advisors had hired burglars to break into the Democratic Party headquarters and bug the place to obtain damaging info in the 1972 presidential campaign.

    The first time Democrats convened to nominate a Clinton for president was 1992, in New York, and it was an eventful affair. Jerry Brown refused to endorse his winning rival, Bill Clinton. Brown delegates put tape over their mouths to protest the feared silencing of their candidate, who eventually got to speak.

    I can relate to a letter from Dennis Lawson dated July 22, where he states his frustration in convincing people of the facts surrounding Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide containing glyphosate. So I have included some conclusions of scientific studies concerning the toxicity of these ubiquitous glyphosate-based herbicides (GBH) sprayed by the ton all over Hawaii, including all our roadsides, golf courses, home gardens, and large agricultural lands.

    Many Americans are understandably worried about the ever-increasing cost of college education. Recent proposals from politicians to offer free tuition at public universities makes calls for free community college seem reasonable in comparison.

    It’s impossible to miss the irony in the news this week — the week of the Republican National Convention — that Roger Ailes’ reign at Fox News has come to an end.
