I'm going to sit back & listen to the Trump suporters thrash about

To The Daily Sun,

As Donald Trump's campaign crashes and burns as spectacularly as SkyLab once did, his more avid supporters are feeling the heat. So I think that instead of engaging again with Bob Meade, I'm simply going to enjoy listening to him thrash about.

In the meantime, I am reminded of a quote from George Bernard Shaw that simply reads, "Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it."

Program on the Supreme Court will be held in M'borough on the 19th

To The Daily Sun,

The direction of the country is often determined by rulings from the U.S. Supreme Court, which has been operating below its full complement of nine justices since the untimely death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February.

Since the upcoming presidential election on Nov. 8 will afford the next president the opportunity to nominate at least one new justice, and perhaps as many as four, during his or her term, it is vitally important for voters to understand the dynamics of the Supreme Court, the nomination and confirmation process, and the shifting balance of the Court — and how all of these might affect the country for many years to come.

There will be a live presentation and discussion about the dynamics of the Supreme Court and the future fabric of our country, as it will be affected by the presidential race, on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Moultonborough Library, 4 Holland St., starting at 7 p.m.

The public is invited and there is no charge to attend. I will make the presentation. I am an attorney and a member of The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies and pocket copies of the Constitution will be available at no charge to help in following the discussion.

Any questions about this presentation should be me by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone at 293-0565.
