Tracy Warner | All the houses we cannot afford

You are supposed to feel good when the value of your home rises. You have gained wealth, on paper at least. If you are clever you can spend some of it, be a good consumer, boost the economy. Why would that not be good?

World Editorial Board | Fires will burn

There is a fire burning today near Buck Creek, at the head of the Chiwawa River, north of Lake Wenatchee in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. Now 2,000 acres, it has been burning for a month, touched off by a bolt of July lightning.

Art of Community | Bourgeois creating community at Leavenworth Farmers Market

Eugene Robinson | Trump’s 360-degree ‘pivot’

Donald Trump’s “pivot,” desperately hoped for by sane Republicans, was over before it began. He couldn’t pretend to be inclusive and statesmanlike for two days in a row if his life depended on it.

Kathleen Parker | A nice column about Trump

When my syndicate editor told me a few clients had been asking, Don't you have anyone over there who can write something positive about Donald Trump?, I thought, well, that could be fun.
