It's the craziest thing. Factory towns that bled both jobs and people still have a fine housing stock, cheap for lack of demand. Booming tech centers, meanwhile, attract battalions of newcomers despite their soaring housing costs and growing congestion.

There are times when there is so much important news happening at the same time that it’s hard to decide what story most people would be interested in. For example, while the progress towards negotiation with North Korea has been going well, today we heard that the North just tossed in a monkey wrench, demanding that the scheduled military exercises by the U.S. and South Korea not take place.

Need more evidence that there are two Americas? Here: Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady.

Get ready, America — here we go ... to war! This kind of war is an affront to the values that most of us hold dear, and this war is truly nasty and evil: a war on the poor.

For Bibi Netanyahu, Israel's longest-serving prime minister save only founding father David Ben-Gurion, it has been a week of triumph.

Everywhere I read, the doom and gloom of the Left and the paranoia of the Right are evident. One percent of the Left wants confiscation of guns that terrify them and fifty percent of the Right believes the entire Left wants to take away all their guns.

None of it is true.

What was Eric Schneiderman thinking? That as the very ambitious attorney general of New York, he could turn himself into the patron saint of the #MeToo movement while physically abusing women, as four women have alleged?

In the fierce labor wars of the last century, industrial barons employed Pinkertons and other goons to bloody the heads of laborers or simply gun down those struggling for a share of economic and political power. It was brutal, but organized workers persevered and eventually gained a share of economic and political power. From their sweat and blood, America's middle class flowered.

For Donald Trump's critics, it's tempting to jump on every juicy reveal regarding the president's sex romps. The swirl of accusations, denials, contradictions, backstabbing and confusion does keep us entertained. Today's story revolves around the hush money sent to porn actress Stormy Daniels. And the unconfirmed report of a tawdry frolic with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel — what Trump calls the "golden shower thing" — still hovers.

It is getting downright upsetting to see the number of people who are so infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) that they are knowingly or unknowingly willing to put our Republic at risk. And no, that is not overstating the situation.

Isaac Newton's third law of motion states that for every action in nature, there is an equal and opposite reaction. It can operate in politics, too. For example, Harvard law professor Jack Goldsmith recently wrote, "It is part of Trump's evil genius that he elevates himself by inducing his critics to behave like him."

"America First" would be a harmless phrase were it not loaded with dark undertones. It harks back to the America First Committee, a group advocating U.S. neutrality in World War II. Some members were Nazi sympathizers, while others simply wanted to keep America out of another bloody conflict in Europe. The attack on Pearl Harbor put the committee out of business.

It was Associate Justice Elena Kagan, former solicitor general, former Harvard Law School dean and brilliant liberal, who raised the question during Wednesday's United States Supreme Court argument on the latest travel ban. It's the same question I used to raise with my students whenever they jumped too quickly to the conclusion that a restriction imposed by us against them was justified. It's the question my mother spent most of her life worrying about, and with reason: What if it were the Jews?

Saturday's White House Correspondents' Association dinner, billed as a celebration of the First Amendment and a tribute to journalists who "speak truth to power," has to be the worst advertisement in memory for our national press corps.

Recently, the N.H. Legislature voted to join the community of other civilized states and countries and abolish capital punishment. Unfortunately, Governor Sununu promised to veto this bill. We should encourage the governor to change his mind or, failing that, encourage our legislators to override any veto.

Seventy-three years ago, Franklin D. Roosevelt, on his trip back from the Yalta conference with Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin, held his last meeting with foreign leaders, aboard the USS Quincy in the Suez Canal's Great Bitter Lake. One was with the desert warrior king, Abdul Aziz ibn Saud, who sailed in with seven live sheep and a tent to sleep in on deck.

Many Americans are reluctant to accept that coup conspiracies are part of country's history. We tend believe that plots to overthrow the government are totally foreign to our national character. But we do do coups. In fact, the country itself was founded on an armed coup to replace the legal ruler, King George III, with a gang of revolutionary upstarts. One coup that most of us haven't heard of is The Wall Street Putsch of 1933. The financial establishment — along with its media and political henchmen — rushed out to bury the story and protect the gentlemen of Wall Street implicated in the part. It's a heck of a story about capitalist skullduggery by a few Lords of Wealth trying to overthrow the government and enthrone a fascist regime friendly to them.

Before President Trump trashes the Iran nuclear deal, he might consider: If he could negotiate an identical deal with Kim Jong Un, it would astonish the world and win him the Nobel Peace Prize.

He’s different. He can be as kind as anyone; he has a history of acknowledging and helping people who have been kind to him. He also has a history of verbally abusing those who haven’t. He seems to truly love his family and, even though they don’t have years and years of experience, he seems…
