Trump and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin ... [at the G20 summit in Hamburg] turned out to be much ado about nothing...,” writes Thérèse Margolis.





Readers write: Mealtime memories, prisoner empathy, violence and children

(image) Recommended: Could you pass a US citizenship test? Thank you for your June 12 cover story, “The story of prisoner 5770102414.” Being a published writer, activist, and advocate against the mistreatment of prisoners, I could only empathize with Prontip Mankong. As the mother of a 5-year-old, I want to thank you for the June 19 OneWeek article “In facing terror, a little humor helps.” I am deeply troubled that President Trump advocates fear of “others” and that his proposed budget asks Congress to prioritize aggression over diplomacy.
