Editor, Daily News President Trump has many of us confused and perhaps taken aback a bit by his somewhat cozy relationship with Russian President V. Putin. Many, like myself, regard Putin as simply another dismal chapter in Russian history. In a word, he is a thug cut from the same cloth as...
Editor, Daily News I remember many months ago writing about my serious concerns over the mere concept of Donald Trump running for the most powerful job on earth. I pointed out his huge ego, constant lying, values in the gutter and lack of knowledge of the position.  The birther issue, Obama...
Editor, Daily News My name is Carmichael Thompson, and I am 11. I played baseball this year for the Rotary and Chuck Stone Little League.  I am writing this letter as I was surprised to learn from my father, who also played for the Chuck Little League, how there used to be several teams of...
