Cut taxes, Reagan-style

What hasn’t happened this week?
It started on Monday with special counsel Robert Mueller’s opening round of indictments, chief of which were charges of fraud and money laundering against Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and shifty big-time lobbyist, Paul Manafort.
The charges against Manafort, which predate his three-month stint with the Trump campaign in summer of 2016, made headlines but were no surprise to anyone, especially me. (I had been telling people for years that Manafort was dirty, but unfortunately no one doing the hiring in Trumpland took my advice.)

The stories reporting the death of Father Joseph Brennan characterized him as a “beloved priest” of the Diocese of Lafayette. It is an apt characterization. He was a counselor to saints and a friend to sinners.
“He had a real knack for finding the lost sheep,” Father Curtis Mallet said. “He had an ability to find just the way to approach them [with] words of comfort and wisdom.”

And so, Flake announced he will not run for re-election because his principles require him to run away from a fight.
