By Letters To The Editor | PUBLISHED: August 10, 2018 at 8:36 am | UPDATED: August 10, 2018 at 8:43 am Manafort may be convicted, but will he ever serve time? Very soon, Paul Manafort will likely be convicted of crimes he committed before, during and after he cavorted as campaign manager for Trump the Terrible. Accordingly, he’ll probably be sentenced to a considerable amount of time in prison. But will he actually serve time? Not likely, because his mentor (in my opinion the most corrupt president in American history) will pardon him. Balderdash, you say? Consider for a moment that Paul Manafort is an unabashed protégé of the Liar-in-Chief. Evidence suggests he falsified his income tax filings, as it now appears The Donald may have as well. ”] Jon JamesPleasanton What do you think about this? What do your friends think?

News / UK and world by Press Association August 10, 2018, 3:22 pm FacebookTwitterLinkedInWhatsAppEmail Sign up to our Daily newsletter The Met’s latest new recruits are ready to tackle crime on London’s streets at a “challenging” time for the force, the head of Scotland Yard said. A “significant” terrorist threat and gang crime are among some of the issues facing the new officers as they take up their new roles in Britain’s largest police service, said Cressida Dick. Metropolitan Police Commissioner Ms Dick inspected more than 70 new police constables at their passing out parade at the Met’s training academy in Hendon, in the north of the capital on Friday. London has been badly hit this year with a number of fatal stabbings and shootings. Ms Dick told the Press Association: “This is a challenging time but we’ve faced lots of other challenging times over the years. “It’s a challenging time, … [Read more...] about New Met recruits joining at challenging time for force: Cressida Dick

People are realizing that climate change is happening, something scientists have long understood. Fundamental change is urgently needed. Will we vote only for candidates who prioritize climate action, like pricing carbon emissions, promoting renewable energy, and funding clean-energy research and clean-car rebates? Will we support policies that favor low-carbon transportation — walking, biking and taking transit — or will we continue to privilege cars? Will we advocate for more homes in our community to shorten commutes? Will we systematically slash our own carbon footprints? Will we sometimes walk, bike and take transit?

Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press Published 2:13 p.m. UTC Aug 10, 2018 Enough is enough. It’s time for the Pro Football Hall of Fame to make things right and induct one of the NFL’s all-time best defensive tackles: the late, great Alex Karras, who played for the Detroit Lions from 1958-70. As I watched last week’s induction ceremony, one nagging question kept running through my mind: How can Ray Lewis and Randy Moss, who both have seriously checkered pasts, be in the Hall of Fame and Karras likely isn’t because of a gambling incident that happened more than a half-century ago? Unfortunately, few individual defensive statistics were kept during Karras’ era. He has almost no measurable evidence of his greatness. But he was a key piece, if not the cornerstone, of some great Lions defenses that included Hall of Famers like Joe Schmidt, Night Train Lane, Lem Barney, Yale Lary and Dick LeBeau. Karras was a huge part of these teams. In 12 of his 13 … [Read more...] about Time to put Detroit Lions’ Alex Karras in Pro Football Hall of Fame
