Let me make clear first of all that I swear allegiance to no political party or entity. I'm independent. And also, referring to a recent excellent letter published in your Feb. 24 edition, I'm only 5-foot, 8-inches short!

President Donald Trump is an autocrat/plutocrat who expects all Republicans…

Liberalism, at least in its essential character, performs a useful service by challenging simplistic cultural assumptions, but one of the most simplistic assumptions of all is embedded in the idea that “simple” is synonymous with “simplistic.”
