Editorial Cartoons of the Week


The world (view) according to Bernie Sanders

The Sanders presidency would be the third in a row in which a president deliberately sets out to downsize U.S. ambitions and reduce U.S. commitments.

Barr isn’t a toady. That’s the nature of his job.

Eric Holder was correct the first time. The attorney general, in large part, actually is the president’s “wingman.”

Can’t anybody here ask debate questions?

Our presidential debates are really not debates at all anymore.


OPINION

Extra interest can’t save all Americans held abroad

Though Kassem died in an Egyptian prison, Trump will face scrutiny after the American man’s death.


OPINION

Address mental health with GIs at deployment

By embedding counselors in-uniform with military units to interact with, relate to, and meet the warrior on their own terms, we can get our soldiers talking.

The man whose sexual bullying helped fuel the rage behind the #MeToo movement now appears weak, pale and pathetic. It all feels very calculated.

Even if some gig workers are subjected to exploitation, it’s an awfully blunt solution to take away from everyone else the freedom to choose.


OPINION

We shouldn’t further risk GIs in Iraq, Syria

Our security in America is not contingent on having a handful of troops deployed in Iraq and Syria. And with tensions in the region boiling over, our forces in Iraq and Syria are in a vulnerable position.


The power of being positive to yourself

I had taken the part-time library job out of desperation. After interviewing and being rejected for three other positions because I “didn’t have enough experience” (a common problem for military spouses), I accepted the offer to work weekend night shifts at the boarding school library.
