Good riddance to Ben & Jerry's

Ben and Jerry were two men who made ice cream in Vermont long ago. Today's owners are taking themselves seriously and have decided to display their ignorance for all the world to see ("Ben & Jerry's boycott of settlements condemned by Israel officials," Web, July 19.

Bezos money well spent

Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and world's wealthiest man, announced Tuesday after flying to the edge of space that he was awarding $100 million each to CNN contributor Van Jones and chef Jose Andres. Bezos said that Jones and Andres were free to do "what they want" with the money. "They can give it all to their own charity or they can share the wealth. It is up to them." The money, Bezos said, was tied to a "surprise" philanthropic initiative he called the "Courage and Civility Award."

Iran persecutes Baha'i believers and is a leading sponsor of terrorism. And Venezuela and North Korea routinely starve their people to death. These are the countries that are supposed to "investigate" the U.S.?

As the U.S. finalizes its withdrawal from Afghanistan, the fate of the thousands of Afghans who helped the Americans hangs in the balance. The people of Cuba are rising up in righteous indignation against the Communist system that has oppressed them for decades. They chant slogans of freedom and some carry American flags. Yet the American response to this outburst of liberty has been tepid at best.
