Trump cancels historic meeting scheduled with North Korea

Will the GOP be thanking the left for the help come November? 

What looks like a good chance to pick up a majority of seats in the House could be turning into a wash, thanks to some big blunders by Democrats. A roundup of editorials Wednesday takes a look at the issue.

From Roll Call: What have Democrats done for voters? So far, make fun of their paychecks.

2. Democrats need better cents

From the New York Daily News: The Democrats should learn that money in your pocket, however small the amount, is still money in your pocket.

3. Democrats (not intentionally) for Trump and the GOP

From columnist Bernard Goldberg: The GOP may not be saved in the midterms by the tax plan, but Democrats are doing everything they can to help them out.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen claimed Tuesday that she was unaware of any intelligence finding that Russia intervened in the 2016 elections on behalf of Donald Trump. That’s quite odd. As DHS secretary, Nielsen is charged with election security and protecting the nation from Russian cyberattacks. Yet she is supposedly ignorant...

Worse for wear city park needs more TLC Being a Midtown resident, I have the luxury of using Piedmont Park daily. My observations are that Piedmont Park is being loved to death. Many festivals and concerts use the park, leaving it torn and tattered. The city cleans up trash after these festivals, but there are no provisions for the wear and tear. Daily...
