LETTER TO THE EDITOR: No Nobel for Trump

Good grief, Beverly, haven’t you been paying attention? A peace prize for meeting with the dictator of the most brutal regime in modern times which meeting now lends legitimacy to that regime?

COMMENTARY: The divide between North and South Korea

Sure, sure, it’s probably true that Kim Jong Un wants to unify the Korean Peninsula under his rule. So did his grandfather. So did his father. None has come close.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Easy fix to separated immigrant children
