Believe it or not, the Republican Party significantly reformed its primary election system this year to avoid pitfalls that arose in 2012. It authorized fewer debates, altered some delegate rules and moved up the convention date. Now, with Donald Trump adding a few more cars Tuesday to the rolling train wreck of the 2016 campaign, party leaders probably are wishing for the good old days of 2012.

America’s working class meltdown
During an era of headline-grabbing advances in medicine, the United States is experiencing a health cataclysm.

Space program lacks will, funding
Last week, China announced that it plans to land a rover on Mars by 2020. The Russian Federal Space Agency is working with the European Space Agency. Every major power in the world has some form of interest in Mars. Like 1961, when Russia first rocketed Yuri Gagarin into orbit and the U.S. was afraid that Russians would beat us with the first actual man on the Moon, the race is on.

Tubman triumphs on the twenty
Harriet Tubman was literally a freedom fighter. The “Moses” of the Underground Railroad liberated herself and dozens of others from slavery over the years in a biopic-worthy life of bravery and idealism.

Radical Islam and ‘The Kingdom’
Should the United States cut off its ties to Saudi Arabia? The question emerges amid a swirl of controversies and President Obama’s recent visit to the kingdom. I’ve been a critic of Saudi Arabia for decades, but with all the problems, I think America is better off with the alliance than without.

Pa. Senate primary to be a nail-biter
In the age of “Trump-Mania” and “Bernie-Mania,” the often ignored and highly underrated Pennsylvania Democratic primary for U.S. Senate is a bit player.

Tubman is a fine choice for new face on the $20
More Americans may gaze on the likeness of Andrew Jackson each day than on any other figure from U.S. history, in part because inflation has put more $20 bills in people’s hands than in the past and in part because that bill is the ATM standard.
