After 52 years of war, the guns finally fell silent in Colombia at midnight on Sunday, when permanent ceasefires were proclaimed by ( the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) and the Colombian government.
Like all of us, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are going to die. Will it be in the next four years? Probably not. But for voters, that’s a reasonable question, especially given that Ms. Clinton is 68 and Mr. Trump, 70. Unfortunately, the candidates have refused to divulge the kind of information that would enable anyone to arrive at an informed opinion about their health.

Her legs were smooth and tan, and her hair, a silky blonde pulled back in a pony tail.
Last week the United States, North Korea and South Korea, with China and Japan standing by, accelerated the sometimes-dangerous military dance periodically underway in that part of East Asia.
I read Christopher Stewart’s Aug. 24 letter (“Workers Struggling”) with great interest. If he feels he has a hard time making ends meet as a member of the “working class,” wait until he retires.
Flash flooding on Washington Boulevard has put Pittsburghers at risk for decades. Little ever has been done to mitigate the danger, even after four people — an elderly woman and a mother and her two young daughters — drowned there in 2011. Quick-witted emergency workers averted another tragedy Sunday, when they pulled the occupants of at least two submerged vehicles to safety during yet another flood.
