Trump wins

Let the quibbling begin, but 675 days after Robert Mueller's 19 lawyers began issuing 2,800 subpoenas and posing questions to 500 witnesses, Mr. Mueller has concluded that there was no Trump collusion with the Russians to cook the 2016 presidential election.

No more special prosecutors

Once the hysteria over the Mueller report subsides, and this, too, shall pass, sober heads on both left and right should consider whether continuing with special prosecutors, special counsels and whatever they might be called, is a good idea.

'Roiled' unfair characterization

The headline "Black man's death in police custody roils town" (Web, March 6) is misleading and biased. The article neither alludes to nor quotes anyone but family members of the deceased, Anton Black, when it comes to questioning the decision of the county prosecutor not to prosecute, or the findings of the medical examiner regarding cause of death. Yet the Associated Press reporter writes, "Black's death has roiled a rural town on Maryland's Eastern Shore and left his family yearning for answers."

Learning Chinese

It's apparent to all but the most obtuse observer of what's going on in the world that the United States and China are engaged in a competition to see who's going to dominate the world. The competition is not particularly friendly and it could turn ugly at any time.

Respect McCain's memory

President Trump continues to bash positions taken by Sen. John McCain — which is somewhat amazing since McCain has been dead for seven months. I believe Mr. Trump, who did not serve in the military like the late McCain, wants to be in the spotlight all the time and doesn't care if he receives negative criticism about his comments.

A moving story of one couple and two loves

Literature, like life, is full of surprises. The most inspiring book I have read in many a month begins with a brutal act of thuggery that nearly kills the narrator's husband, and leaves him severely brain-damaged. Illness, injury and pain fill many of its pages. Much of the action takes place in hospital intensive care units, and a second major character, the narrator's father, dies a long and wasting death. Yet "Love You Hard," public school teacher Abby Maslin's memoir describing all this sorrow, is a magnificently life-affirming true story.

Web crackdown leaves ordinary Russians on edge

Over the last several years, many laws have been passed which restrict personal freedom. Campaigns against "extremism" have been used to stifle speech the Kremlin doesn't like. There are too many Russians in jail charged with posting something offensive on Facebook or other social media outlets.
