The more we see, the less we like: For example, MLB botched its own coronavirus testing protocol on the first weekend of its do-over training camps. Supposedly the firm with which it had contracted to process the tests claimed the Fourth of July holiday held things up. Maybe an enterprise that customarily works on holidays should have emphasized that it expected the same of its partner. Mea...

Trump’s leadership tested in time of fear, pandemic

By JONATHAN LEMIRE and CALVIN WOODWARD | Associated Press WASHINGTON — Not long after noon on Feb. 6, President Donald Trump strode into the elegant East Room of the White House. The night before, his impeachment trial had ended with acquittal in the Republican-controlled Senate.
