I don't speak Canine. But apparently my 91-year-old mother does. She is closer to her yapping beagle, Chipper, than anyone in the world. She walks him twice a day, cuddles with him on her couch, feeds him from the dinner table and worries about him constantly.

Donald Trump won the Republican nomination by swimming in the rotten river of racial stereotypes and invective. And Black people know him well enough that a few speeches here and there won't change anyone's mind.
"The Presidency should not be used as a platform for proving one's manhood . . ." "Inwardly he is a frightened person who sees himself as weak and threatened by strong virile power around him . . ." "Since his nomination I find myself increasingly thinking of the early 1930s...
This is where I came into the women's movement. And this is where I intend to go out--knowing that my life's mission to advance women to full equality in this world is safe because the women of America have the Equal Rights amendment.

It's still only August, but already the predictions that this would be an exceedingly banal presidential election campaign look like they've already come true. This week's campaign news might be summed up as an elementary school playground shouting match: "You're a bigot!" "No, you're a bigot!" Sigh.
Pollution and waste accumulation is one of the world's biggest problems yet to be resolved.
