Every now and then I make a list of nine things I've liked lately. Here's one for the approach to summer. 1. Lake Michigan I love the lake in its lonelier seasons, too, but now, when the warmth comes back and the people come out, the lakefront reminds...

Less than a week before the U.S. election, former president of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev berated America and all but endorsed the sitting president and fellow Nobel Peace Prize winner at an event I attended in Houston. Speaking last Thursday from a...
