CVS Pharmacy hit by vehicle in Kettering

TODAY’S MODERATOR: Too late to cut gases?


The response we got to a recent column citing physicist Stephen Hawking’s idea that humans better flee earth in 100 years or perish was, as you’d imagine, pretty interesting.

This from Dave Miller: “On the subject of ‘cutting greenhouse gas emissions to avert catastrophic climate change,’ how about we stop using all the drive-thru lanes at merchants. Absurd? Probably. While I was stationed in Germany many years ago, I was told it was unlawful to allow a vehicle to stand running for more than a certain amount of time. Europeans are already aghast at the plethora of business outlets in our communities (compared with their village centrist, one of each category of merchant, model), no less at our withdrawal from the Paris accord.

COMMENTARY: Health-care bill is a giant wealth transfer to the rich

“I am a believer that many things in our world are cyclic; differences amongst those things is the periodicity length. Wide ties and narrow ties go about 10-15 years. Global warming and cooling may be hundreds to thousands of years.”

They may, indeed. We’ll share more mail on this soon. Send yours to rrollins@coxohio.com.

Opinion: Remembering Barbara Bush, grieving mother

My mother and Barbara Bush were contemporaries. Despite coming from very different backgrounds — daughter of a Kansas farmer and daughter of a New York City businessman — they had a common experience, a very human link. It’s a sad connection that I suspect also has many a woman feeling fondly toward Bush, who died Tuesday at 92. Both...
Opinion: Paul Ryan is the ultimate party man

The mistake about Paul Ryan, the one that both friends and foes made over the years between his Obama-era ascent and his just-announced departure from the House speakership, was to imagine him as a potential protagonist for our politics, a lead actor in the drama of conservatism, a visionary or a villain poised to put his stamp upon the era. This Ryan-of-the-imagination...
Opinion: Foes of renewable energy increase risk of climate catastrophe

Peter Thiel, Facebook investor and Donald Trump supporter, is by all accounts a terrible person. He did, however, come up with one classic line about the disappointments of modern technology: “We wanted flying cars, instead we got 140 characters.” OK, now it’s 280, but who’s counting? The point of his quip was that while we&rsquo...

Opinion: What happened in Starbucks isn’t really about Starbucks

I don’t drink coffee, so I can’t boycott Starbucks. But I wouldn’t if I could. Yes, I understand — and share — the national anger over viral video of last week’s arrest of two African-American men at one of the company’s Philadelphia stores. The men, who have yet to be identified, were reportedly doing nothing...
