Leonard Pitts: 63red Safe offers safe haven for Trumpers

Posted 3/13/2019 in National Columns

So I go to my barber for a shave. While I'm waiting for her to finish the man ahead of me, this other guy and I get to talking about Donald Trump. He's no more a fan of the boy president than I am, and pretty soon, we've got the whole shop laughing as we rip Trump's idiocy.

Leonard Pitts Jr.: Should Donald Trump be impeached?

Posted 1/5/2019 in National Columns

Should Donald Trump be impeached? That he will be seems likely as Democrats take control of the House of Representatives, the chamber where impeachment proceedings begin. That he deserves to be is similarly self-evident.
