    The Times is correct that "often it will be a matter of debate whether a characterization of a candidate's record is false or merely misleading." ("When it comes to politics, there's no need to outlaw lying," Editorial, June 17) Particularly in a...
  • Letter: Mental health crisis is the real issue

    Ray Richmond’s ranting column should have been headlined “A nation held hostage by mental-health professionals.” I hope Mr. Richmond watched 60 Minutes Sunday night. He would have learned that almost all of the mass shooters were...
