Response to 'Bobby Kennedy and Donald Trump' letter
It's kind of ironic to have a Robert Kennedy admirer criticize "grifters, sycophants, hucksters, and incompetents" of the Trump administration (Letters, June 12). If the Kennedy clan is anything, Jeff Laadt should know that it has been a decades long magnet for world class grifters, sycophants, and hucksters - never mind the long list of incompetents in the extended family itself.

Bobby Kennedy and Donald Trump
To the Editor:

Bob Dylan and climate change
To the Editor:

Change just two letters in Bob Dylan's song, and his prophetic words ring true for our times: "... for the climes they are a changin'." The reality of climate change resulting from rising levels of greenhouse gases (GHS) caused by human activity is recognized as a life imperiling issue by all but the most obdurate. And this denial by some and inaction by too many will inevitably make today's problems far worse. (subscriber access)
