For California natives like me, the wildfires are a real gut punch.
This year I can’t think of Thanksgiving without thinking of Barry Manilow’s melancholy song “Tryin’ To Get The Feeling Again.”
The ugly confrontation between the president and a reporter in the White House briefing room should remove whatever doubts existed over whether the daily briefings should continue or be scrapped.
In a rebuke bordering on national insult Sunday, Emmanuel Macron retorted to Donald Trump’s calling himself a nationalist.
The Nov. 9 Community View commenting on evolution teachings is confused and confusing.
Among today’s most regrettable trends is the dying art of effective humor and satire in politics.
The East Room of the White House – with its vaulted ceilings, ornate chandeliers and gold curtains – is the closest thing to a throne room the United States has.
The much-anticipated “most-important-midterm-election-in-our-lifetime” is over. Democrats have a narrow majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, and Republicans have slightly increased their majority in the U.S. Senate.
That’s over with. And not a moment too soon. It’s usually at this point when I start reviewing what I’ve seen and heard over the past several months and try to make some sense of it, not unlike what a psychologist might do with a particularly vivid and disturbing nightmare.
Charles Dickens wrote this about the French Revolution: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair … ” There’s no better way to describe America on the morning after the midterms.
This is in response to the Community View column published Nov. 7, “Everything Wrong in the U.S. is the Fault of the Democrats.” The writer places the blame on today’s turmoil on the Democrats, but it is truly on the shoulders of “We the People.” We are the ones electing our representatives in our government and expect them to govern responsibly.
I don’t think the average American military veteran has the time or the temperament to spend 51 weeks a year asking such a question, but a reasonable person could hardly blame him if he did.
It seems that everyone is getting into it.
Did you realize that November 24 marks the 100th birthday of the venerable (and still-published) comic strip “Gasoline Alley”?
One evening, my senior year in college, there was a knock at my door.
In the 1940s we fought World War II.
After living in Washington, D.C., for nearly 8 years, I love being back home in Pittsburgh.
Have you ever lost something important and knew it was gone forever?
Among the reasons Donald Trump is president is that his natural political instincts are superior to those of any other current figure.
Doug Angle, of Angle Homes, Inc., has run an open letter stating I have attacked him personally. I have not attacked Doug personally, and if he took it that way, I’m sorry.
There have recently been a lot of negative comments on The Daily Miner Opinion page about Sunbelt, a Las Vegas developer who has come to Kingman with “evil intentions” to invest in Kingman and possibly make a profit from his investments. Just to set the record straight, how about some facts?
Arizonans are known for our rugged independence.
I have lived in Kingman for almost 45 years and continue to enjoy the small town feel it has and appreciate its limited growth. However, our town is growing rapidly, and we need to provide support for the increased growth in population, business, and tourism.
Over the past week, we’ve heard the media pitching one particular narrative nonstop: the story that President Donald Trump’s rhetoric has resulted in increased violence. We heard it in the aftermath of a spate of attempted bombing attacks against Democratic targets by a Floridian nut job, and we heard it in the aftermath of a shooting attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue by an outspokenly anti-Trump white supremacist.
Late one Halloween night some years ago I opened my front door to take the trash outside when I unexpectedly encountered a startled young teenage girl who was bending down to take one of my children’s jack-o-lanterns.
