More Cartoonists' Opinions:
From the commentary: The 2024 campaign is already very different from 2016, and it’s likely to become even more so.
From the editorial: "'Spend it all and then tax more' is precisely where things seem to be heading in St. Paul this session."
American Opinion: The healing of the ozone layer gives hope, but addressing climate change will be harder
From the editorial: We have all the tools we need to fight this existential threat and we now know that taking decisive action can get results. We can’t wait a moment longer to act.
Ruben Navarrette: Mexican Americans are not seeking reparations. That doesn't mean it is no deserved, too
From the commentary: So California, if you're planning to settle up with other groups, you should at least acknowledge that Mexican Americans also have a claim — even if we don't pursue it.
"If we are unwilling to admit that the racism exists in our power structures, people of color will continue to pay a deadly price."
From the editorial: Expulsion or impeachment are exceedingly rare. But Speaker Kevin McCarthy should make clear they are on the table if Rep. Santos refuses to resign.
From the commentary: The American business community is about creating jobs, bolstering our economy, and solving problems, and it will support candidates that bring answers and not fear. That message is a recipe for success for either party to embrace.
