President Obama told attendees of the National Rx Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit that until recently, addiction has been seen as a “character flaw.” I’ve wondered when we will have a public discussion about how the narrative of addiction has changed now that it...

Conservative columnist was wrong about Clinton's emails

I read with interest the March 31 column in the Standard Examiner by Jennifer Rubin, “Hillary Clinton must face the music – and the FBI.” I was struck by her claims of “untrue” that personal email servers were used by previous secretaries of state, and that “the...
