Chelsea Clinton’s new book aims to inspire young people


Recommeded reading

“It’s Your World” by Chelsea Clinton (Philomel Books). It’s going to be pretty interesting to see how the next few decades shake out for one Chelsea Victoria Clinton, formerly of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, now of a really nice apartment in New York City. Will she become a deeply private citizen? Probably not. Will she run for office? Well, it’s worked out OK for her folks (except recently). Right now, she is here discussing her book, “It’s Your World,” aimed at middle-schoolers who are looking to get (or whose parents and teachers are looking to get them) a little more woke. Topics covered include global poverty, education and global climate change. Since it is 402 pages, it also might help build developing biceps.

Re: June 16 photo, “1,100 boys try their hand at governing Texas.” I was dismayed on so many levels that the boys at Boys State, an event sponsored by the American Legion no less, voted for Texas to secede from the United States! Where are the idealistic thoughts of making this country a better nation? It speaks volumes about the environment...

Commentary: Language barrier shouldn’t be a barrier to democracy

Though voting should be a simple process, it’s undeniable that some people face more obstacles at the polls than others. When English is not your first language, the voting process can be especially difficult. Though a controversial voter ID law here has grabbed national headlines, fewer Texans know about the state’s more obscure voting...

Commentary: How Senate health bill raises health costs for everyone

As Congress wrestles with replacing the Affordable Care Act, a big question is where they will finally land with Medicaid. Rolling back Medicaid hurts our country’s safety net by taking coverage away from millions of Americans — many of whom are low-income, working adults who aren’t offered health insurance through their employers...

Commentary: Why Dawnna Dukes’ incumbency is misguiding Democrats

I was dismayed to read a broadside from Vincent Harding, chairman of the Travis County Democratic Party, purporting to explain his heavy-handed refusal to allow a vote on a resolution calling for the resignation of state Rep. Dawnna Dukes. That resolution might or might not have passed. That’s why votes are held. I’ve served five terms...

Re: June 15 article, “Austin requires a permit for kids’ lemonade stands. Troxclair wants to change that.” So, this is why there is a lag at City Hall. How much time and rhetoric energy have gone on about removal of this code? How much time was spent to make this a city code anyway? Now, the “department is in the process of...
