Re: “What's the Republican Party to do?

"...we are experiencing a rapid and severe decline in economic, political, educational, intellectual, cultural, and moral terms."

The first, third, fourth, and fifth elements are empirically untrue. The second and sixth are moot. This is hand-wringing, not argument, and it doesn't contribute to the defeat of the GOP's candidate/demagogue. That's the task people of good will have before us.

Re: “A Reader columnist goes RedPlum crazy

What's the big deal? I solved my own Red Plum mess in a mere 7 emails to the Trib. At least, that's what I'm remembering from last fall's epic–––and I mean epic–––battle with the RP delivery juggernaut. See attached photo, a typical pile of RPs on my doorstep, directly underneath the sign I'd placed the night before that reads DO NOT LEAVE RED PLUM ADVERTISING.

It was only a modest harvest that afternoon, maybe 16 or 18 RPs for the residents of the six apartments in our Hyde Park co-op. I'm sure I'd counted two dozen on occasion. And I'd dutifully separate each one from the Trojan-like sheathing they arrived in and shlep 'em out to the recycling.

Eventually they stopped.

The thing is, I miss them now. We've gotten a dog. And those little plastic bags?
