John Young: Choosing ‘Trumpism’ over, um, governing?

Newt Gingrich told a gathering the other day that state and local leaders should embrace “Trumpism.” Not surprisingly, he did not define his terms. Racism? Sexism. Infantilism? Whatever. The former House speaker, whose greatest gift to democracy – correction, to Democrats – was to shut down government in 1996, observes the wreckage...

The city has long grappled with three downtown-related questions: whether to expand the convention center; how to adequately address the growing homeless population; and how to keep its local music and cultural arts vibrant. Last week, Mayor Steve Adler announced a strategy that would help provide answers to those questions. Adler’s idea would...
