The president's farewell tour

Sarah Bernhardt, the French superstar at the end of a career as "the most famous actress the world has ever known," famously set out on a farewell tour that was so successful she repeated it, several times.

Rep. Lewis deserves medal

The Philadelphia Liberty Medal is a highly reputable prize. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is an excellent choice for this year's recipient ("John Lewis awarded Liberty Medal for civil rights work," web, Sept. 19). The prize has an established history and Mr. Lewis is an effective congressman.

Virtually every day a new scandal surfaces, and the rumors are that the really big scandals have yet to emerge ("Millennial voters spurning Clinton, but not for GOP," Web, Sept. 19).

Liberals' refugee penance

This week the United States welcomed its 10,000th Syrian refugee. There are 30,000 more waiting in line. This helping of distressed human beings is a big thrill to confused Democrats.

Working overtime against the economy

Barack Obama is worried about the legacy he'll bequeath to history in just three months.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Scorched Earth: Restoring the Country After Obama'
