From the editorial: China should allow for peaceful protests and look to loosen the “zero-COVID” policy and announce a scientific examination into the origins of the virus and turn the corner and get ahead of these unsettling few years.
From the editorial: Concerns about which states go first have persisted for years. In the mid-1990s, there was a push by the National Association of Secretaries of State for a system of regional primaries whose sequence would rotate with each election, so no one region had a permanent advantage.
From the editorial: "No matter how many mass-media messages make arguments to the contrary, you can't — cannot, no way no how, huh-uh — buy your way to the perfect Christmas morning."

From the editorial: Rep. Katie Porter, D-Calif., introduced a bill last year to prohibit campaign committees from accepting money from lobbyists registered with a foreign country. Considering that dark money represents the easiest and fastest way for Russia and other governments to buy politicians and wreak havoc, Congress should make closing that gap one of its top priorities.
From the editorial: If you are interested in donating to support the victims of the Club Q shooting, the Colorado Healing Fund has been activated. The donation link is: coloradogives.org/organization/COHealingFund.
From the editorial: It’s time for senators to put aside their differences and show leadership in addressing the fate of Dreamers.
From the editorial: Yet congressional Republicans are already testing the waters for more tax-cutting. You’d think after blaming the Biden administration (with some justification) for making inflation worse by pumping more money into the economy, they would at least see the irony of what they’re proposing, if not its damning precedent.
From the editorial: As a start, any such deal should scrap the idea of time limits; perversely, truncated reviews can actually lead to worse delays by encouraging more lawsuits. Instead, Congress should make it harder to tie up projects with dubious legal proceedings.
From the editorial: Pelosi’s designated heir-apparent, New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, 52, appropriately highlighted both those issues in a letter to colleagues last week. Jeffries, who would be the first Black caucus leader, is conversant with the left of the party but not in thrall to it. That initially feels like the right mix for Democrats to continue navigating their own internal conflicts while unifying to confront what are sure to be the excesses of the Republican right in the next two years.

From the editorial: Today, we recognize Nancy Pelosi for her decades of exemplary service. She has made America better. She knows that better days are still ahead.
It won't be easy, because right now we all crave “normal.” We want to see people smile. We want to gather around the dinner table with family members. We want our children to hug their grandparents.
From the editorial: The lame ducks of Congress in Washington must finish their work.
