    WASHINGTON — The first use of nuclear weapons occurred Aug. 6, 1945. The second occurred three days later.

    Let me ask you a question; take your time in answering it. Would you be willing to take health care away from a thousand children with the bad luck to have been born into low-income families so that you could give millions of extra dollars to just one wealthy heir?

    The president of the United States is now at the center of an obstruction-of-justice investigation by the FBI. There can be no other conclusion after LAST Friday’s guilty plea by former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the bewildering statements made in the past few days by Donald Trump.
