The Altruistic Death: Choosing to Die as an Act of Love

Dying isn’t what it used to be. Up until the mid-twentieth century, most people died fairly quickly, despite the best efforts of doctors to keep them alive.

Ruminations of an Old New Paper Boy

In the nearly seventy years that have passed since I was a paper boy, the newspaper business has changed dramatically.

The slowly growing number of anti-Trump Americans are deluding themselves into thinking that the Mueller investigation or other factors may lead to a Congressional impeachment trial in the near future. I opined then, and I opine again, that is a very dangerous position to adopt. It probably is best for the nation that Donald Trump finishes out his four-year term as President, and that the American electorate chose someone else to lead the nation beginning in 2021. However, if the American people and their elected representatives in Congress believe it is imperative to remove the President prior to January of 2021, then so much pressure must be brought to bear on Donald Trump that he himself will come to see that he has no other choice than resignation. For the time being, it is more important for all other Americans to realize the extreme delicacy of our political impasse than for our President to realize it. For the time being, he is incapable of understanding how chaotic America has become. And he is the primary culprit of the chaos.
