  1. Like most Americans my age, my first reaction to Cuba’s commandante Fidel Castro involved curiosity and abject fear. He cut a dashing figure in his fatigues, the beard and cigar. He shone through on the front page of the newspaper. He beamed on black-and-white television.
  2. I’m getting fed up with campaign advertising, and it’s only August. If only candidates could give us something new, an idea that might work. Instead we get cut-and-paste shopworn proposals we have heard again and again.
  3. The work isn’t glamorous. There aren’t many romantic touches, or picturesque pastoral scenes. The building is utilitarian, gray, with no cute architectural frills, flashing neon or glass office towers.
  4. Donald Trump is not always wrong. In his Tuesday anti-trade speech in Pennsylvania he offered a reasonable history lesson. Tariffs and protectionism were once political winners, he said, and a real hit with the economic elites.
  5. We are 4,800 miles away from the heart of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and we really have no basis to second guess its voters’ desire to exit the European Union. Our 401(k)s may take a beating, but we don’t have the personal knowledge or experience to make an informed judgment. Our sovereignty is not the issue. Theirs is.
