In his last two opinion columns, Bill Hamilton provided his solution to addressing the gun violence in our country. In his first column, he opined that the source of the problem began with Nurse Ratched whose actions in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" caused the closing of mental institutions. He then ...
This past weekend, my wife and I were observers at the "red/blue" workshop held in Easthampton sponsored by the Better Angels, the first of these in New England. The Better Angels is an organization founded in 2016 as a "bipartisan citizen's movement to unify our divided nation." Its website carries the ...

Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and the deputy supreme commander of the United Arab Emirates' armed forces, is the enemy of Turkey, a pro-government Turkish columnist said.

"On Tuesday, Biden campaigned twice in Pennsylvania with Democratic House candidate Conor Lamb, whom polls show has a good chance of pulling off an upset special election victory next week in a district long held by Republicans. "Biden this weekend will headline the Mansfield Metcalf Dinner in ...
I think the heading of my letter tells it all. Syndicated columnist Froma Harrop (Opinion, March 1) thinks that guns kill people when people kill people and she blames the NRA. Then she mentions these teenage robots in favor of letting the same people that failed them handle their security. Of the 5 million ...
The one constant in the Universe is change. However, not everything changes at the same rate. Living organisms, for example, have a relatively brief life cycle: Birth, development, stable maturity, and decline. Species seem to follow the same general pattern usually ending in extinction. Life is always in a ...

During the years I worked at The Rocky Mountain News, one of my favorite people was the great columnist Gene Amole. Frankly, most people in that newsroom would have said the same thing about him. Amole was all about simplicity and writing with his own, unique voice. For example, his columns ...
You might say we start over every day, and you'd be right in a sense. But I don't really notice it day by day. It takes something big to shake me up and make me ask: Who will I be now, and how will I live my life? The first time I started over was the year my parents split up. I was 2, and have little memory of it.
OK, let's try this again. Today marks the return to the Naples Daily News of "Life is Heald," an alleged humor column, after missing for over five years. I'm back because, at 55 years old, I had a midlife crisis, although 55 seems more than halfway past the turn to the urn. Regardless, I don't see making 110 ...

Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. "The day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear with its hopes and invitations to waste a moment on yesteryears." (Jim Davidson is a syndicated columnist who appears each Saturday in The ...
As a mother, a non-profit employee and a member of the LGBTQ community, I am concerned about The News Tribune's decision to continue to allow Angela Connelly to write for the publication. First, you published her abhorrent bigotry of an op-ed in February 2016 under the guise of bipartisanship.
The slaughter of innocents goes on, unabated. We feed our children into the fiery mouth of Moloch as a sacrifice to the "God of Guns." We worship false idols, bow down to graven images in the shape of AR-15s. We may not all be worshippers in the Church of the Holy Second Amendment, but if we have ...
Is it too much to ask that the government not insult our intelligence while it is lightening our wallets? As an overture to his predictable announcement of steel and aluminum tariffs, the president, that human sponge ever eager to soak up information, held a "listening session," at which he listened to ...
When we have time to watch TV, my wife and I usually end up on PBS or Netflix. While browsing PBS I noticed a new series hosted by Ann Curry, formerly of the "Today" show. It's a terrific new show called "We'll Meet Again." The premise is this: Curry tracks two people in each episode who want to find a ...

It is difficult to take Melvyn Fein seriously. Virtually every article he writes castigates liberals, Democrats and leftists about some real or perceived problem that he accuses them of creating or exacerbating. But then occasionally he finds fault with an education issue in Georgia. Yesterday, it was the problem ...
Turkey's approach to the Syrian conflict has paved the way for militant groups to benefit financially, says journalist Hassan Hassan in United Arab Emirates newspaper The National. As Turkey's priorities in Syria have changed from toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to confronting Kurdish ...

There have been liberal columnists in Nevada for years. I've never heard of a Republican turning one of them away from a press event. There would have been no end to the -- rightful -- bellyaching if that had happened. In contrast to Sisolak, Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Laxalt's campaign ...
Outrage is a powerful emotional tool. It can cause us to say things and do things we wouldn't ordinarily say or do if we weren't so worked up. But is it an effective political tool? We've experienced outrage nationally on many different fronts over the years. The civil rights horrors in the south in the 1950s and ...
I woke crazy early, just in case I had the time zone wrong. 8:30 Denver time should be 9:30 our time, but what if I'm wrong? So I was up by 6:30, monitoring the live feed, because maybe I had forgotten how to use a clock. 9:30 rolls around and I'm nearly in full-blown panic mode…the feed is down! No sound ...
Americans tell pollsters that they want tougher gun laws and legal status for illegal immigrants who came here as minors -- the so-called Dreamers. So why haven't such laws been enacted?

The news of Thursday Feb. 22 was hard to take in. Peter Kocot of Northampton, our state representative for the past 16 years, had died. He was 61. I was stunned. Hard to take in because I've always thought of Peter as young even though we met decades ago when he worked as chief of staff for Rep.

New York Times opinion page editor James Bennet has been widely criticized for a series of hires, including columnist Bret Stephens, a longtime climate science denier. On Tuesday, Columbia Journalism Review wrote about "a crisis in confidence within the newsroom" as a result of Bennet's miscues.
One of those new staff columnists was Bari Weiss, another Wall Street Journal alum.

Recently, President Trump tweeted, "I have been much tougher on Russia than Obama, just look at the facts. Total Fake News!" The tweet was greeted with incredulity in some press circles.
