Trump’s hollow ‘regrets’

kentucky.com — Donald Trump is the candidate who is so rigid in his perverted self-righteousness that he doesn't "like to have to ask for forgiveness." He says he has never even sought forgiveness from God, the divine author and inspiration of his favorite book, from which he struggled to name a favorite verse.

nytimes.com — Reports of Donald Trump's demise are an exaggeration, to paraphrase and repurpose Mark Twain. Yes, he can't stop shooting off his mouth and shooting himself in the foot, and there are reports that his messy campaign is nearing the point of mutiny.

Off to the Races

nytimes.com — Attending both political parties' conventions last month, I certainly had some upside-down-world moments. The Republican convention featured a sprawling blended family, an L.G.B.T. first, and promises of a top-down government fix, while the Democratic convention showcased religiosity, patriotism, militarism, and American exceptionalism.

Charles M. Blow: Incandescent With Rage

post-gazette.com — No one need ask me anymore about how to heal the racial divide in America. No one need inquire about the path forward beyond racial strife. You will not be put at ease by my response. James Baldwin once said, "To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious, is to be in a rage almost all the time."
