People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin, who is running for the Senate, should heed that counsel before implicitly peddling the discredited conspiracy allegation that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians.
With Donald Trump regaining the White House becoming a real possibility, no doubt legions of Americans who despise the former president will soon be declaring again their plans to relocate to Canada. Many Canadians, particularly millennials, will gladly switch places with them.
Three years ago, I posted a column headlined, “Why the L.A. Times Deserves to Fail.” Though I didn’t think it possible, the daily has declined further in the intervening years. If billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong retains ownership, I’m doubtful the publication will survive.
