Future under Clinton might be dim
Sen. Bernie Sanders said one good thing when he spoke Monday at the Democratic National Convention. It was that the presidential election is not about gossip, fundraising, campaign strategies or polls, all the things that preoccupy news outlets. It is about the kind of future we are going to have.

Here’s one Russian athlete who didn’t cheat
The Summer Olympics in Rio are less than two weeks away, and there’s no shortage of marquee athletes poised to captivate and inspire: American swimmer Michael Phelps, with 18 gold medals on his shelf, competing in his fifth Olympics; the world’s fastest man and four-time gold medalist Usain Bolt of Jamaica, running in what he says is his last Olympics; the unbeatable 4-foot-9-inch U.S.

Clinton grappling over likability
En route to fight one of his many duels, French politician Georges Clemenceau bought a one-way train ticket. Was he pessimistic? “Not at all. I always use my opponent’s return ticket for the trip back.” Some Hillary Clinton advisers, although not that serene, think her victory is probable and can be assured.

Clinton’s free college plan is unrealistic
Hillary Clinton’s proposal for making public higher education not just cheaper but free to most Americans sounds good on paper. A few years after the plan’s implementation, a family that earns as much as $125,000 annually would not have to pay tuition to send a child to a state-sponsored college or university.

Clinton’s 3 big convention challenges
Donald Trump made one part of Hillary Clinton’s job easier last week — by making the braggadocios claim that he alone can cure the nation’s ills, a boast that sounded more like a promise of one-man rule. But Clinton faces three other big challenges at her convention in Philadelphia this week, and they won’t be as easy as painting Trump as a dangerous blowhard.

Echoes of tyrants in Trump’s speech
CLEVELAND — Donald Trump was a man in full Thursday night as he accepted the Republican nomination: Full-throated, full of fury and full of himself: “I am your voice”; “I alone can fix it the system”; “I am the law and order candidate.”

No subtlety, specifics in Trump speech
There wasn’t much subtlety in Donald Trump’s acceptance speech — or much innovation, either. Beforehand, some Republicans ventured that this was their nominee’s biggest opportunity to retool his agenda for the general election and to present a softer, more inclusive, more thoughtful Trump.

The Trump dynasty takes over the GOP
Watching the GOP convention, you could be forgiven for believing almost all the brightest stars in the Republican firmament are Trumps.

Orlando killings point out injustice
Like most Americans, I was horrified by the cold-blooded killings in Orlando, Fla., of 49 members of the LGBTQ community. This horrific event was the worst, but by no means the only hate crime perpetrated against this community.

Hey, you senior citizens: There’s no budging in line
Imagine you’ve been patiently waiting your turn at, say, the Starbucks. You finally reach the front when a senior citizen strides up and announces that he is next in line. Not you. Him.

The banana republic of America
Over the years, I have watched campaigns in third world countries in which one candidate accuses the other of being a criminal, sometimes even threatening to jail his opponent once elected. But I cannot recall this happening in any Western democracy until this week.

Clinton, not Trump, unites GOP
CLEVELAND — Like partners in a shotgun marriage, Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s establishment have been preaching unity this week in hopes of enabling their uneasy new partnership to thrive.
