    WASHINGTON — Evidence of national discernment, although never abundant, can now be found high on the New York Times combined print and e-book best seller list. There sits Ron Chernow’s biography of Ulysses Simpson Grant, which no reader will wish were shorter than its 1,074 pages.

    WASHINGTON — I was amazed by the #MeToo outpouring by women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted. So many women I know have been victims, and yet, I marveled, I had spent my career in charmed workplaces where such things didn’t happen.

    As if we Americans were not doing a good enough job of hating each other on our own, recent news reports tell us Russian trolls are using social media to divide us even more along racial and political lines.

    Mark Van Pernis’ recent commentary, which unfairly disparaged the Palamanui project, was full of inaccuracies and innuendo. In short, Van Pernis tried to blame Queen Kaahumanu Highway traffic deaths on Palamanui for not constructing the mauka to makai connector road through their project.
