Tuesday was the first day back after a much-needed holiday break, the first work day of the New Year, and because the media had to take Monday off, Tuesday brought us a double dose of hair-on-fire freak-outs over President Trump.
Do “smart diplomats” ever get tired of saying stupid things? Former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice did it twice this week alone. She claimed that if President Trump, who voiced strong support for Iranian pro-democracy protestors, wants to help them, he should “be quiet.”
I haven’t read Michael Wolffe’s new book on the 2016 Trump Presidential campaign (it's not officially out yet), but one look at the long excerpt printed in NEW YORK magazine tells me it’s quite an imaginative work of fiction. A number of people closely associated with the campaign and in the best position to know have already said as much, strongly denying statements they’re quoted as saying.

The U.S. Navy considers all photographs taken on board our submarines to be confidential and has a strict policy forbidding sailors from taking pictures, even just as personal memorabilia. The only sailor allowed to take pictures on board the sub is the official ship’s photographer, who takes photographs strictly as ordered.
Over the holidays, I saw the new film, “Darkest Hour,” about Winston Churchill’s early days as British Prime Minister, when he was trying to warn his countrymen of the rising danger from Germany and battling liberal leaders whom he thought were too weak in the face of Hitler’s aggression.
Those who (like me) have believed for a long time that “the fix was in” regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton by the FBI have even more reason today for drawing that conclusion.
It’s official: Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the longest-serving Republican senator in U.S. history, has announced his intention to retire at the end of his current term. After winning seven electoral contests for the Senate since his first in 1976, he says won’t be standing for re-election this year.

As 2017 ended, there were a lot of articles assessing President Trump’s accomplishments, and even some of his most staunch critics grudgingly admitted that things were better off than they’d predicted.

This week, I’m recounting “Simple Christmas” stories shared with me a few years ago by my radio listeners. One thing we all learned from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is that it’s not how fancy your tree is that matters, it’s the love it represents. A radio listener of mine named Vicky from California sent me a beautiful story that illustrates that as well as Charles M. Schulz did.
Recently, police officers have become targets of hatred, assaults and even deadly violence. Right now is a perfect time to stop and reflect on the many ways in which police officers and other first responders such as firefighters and EMTs give up their holidays so that we can enjoy ours in safety.

A few years ago, inspired by my book “A Simple Christmas,” I asked listeners of my radio show to share their favorite family Christmas memories. Today’s story shows us that Dr. Seuss was right: Christmas is not something that comes from a store. Christmas means a whole lot more.
No matter what corner of the United States you may reside in, the opioid epidemic also resides. This epidemic’s vise-like grip shows few signs of letting go as it casts its shadow across communities, large and small.
