Immigration in Irons?

Lately, I’ve been sniffing a little shift in the immigration winds. I think it started with the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore. Four workers died that night. Four men doing the hard, dangerous work most of us once took pride in and now want to avoid. Four men peacefully struggling to earn their daily bread. Fathers working to feed their children. Brothers sending money home. Churchgoers. A dad who laughed with his young daughter at a water park kind of men. In other words, men with the family values so many Americans cherish. They were ... by Carlos Sandoval

VIEWPOINT: Life’s Quiet Wonders

The solar eclipse, as advertised, was something to see, or partially to see, depending on where one stood. What is less observable yet just as remarkable is the way we apprehend such phenomena, the state of wonder we enter as we stand quasi-mesmerized before things we do not understand, and over which we have no control. Wonder. We feel it at an eclipse and, equally, though not in the same way, when something horrific happens, like the disaster at the bridge in Baltimore. Something occurs beyond rational comprehension. The sky darkens or the water blackens, and we gape, open-mouthed, like ... by Roger Rosenblatt
