Poor substitute for leadership

To the editor: Re: “Stefanik wants China to pay for coronavirus damage”: This sad and pathetic excuse for leadership is even more disturbed than making Mexicans “pay for the wall.” Considering that Trump waited two months to take COVID seriously, maybe he should pay us. Or better ...

COVID-19 economics gone wrong

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 To the editor: A short while ago I took a break from preparing my economics class, which meant closing the laptop and taking a “socially distant” walk around town.
