So, readers, just how wrong am I about Joe Biden?

Category: سانتایمز Comments: No comments

My column last week, “Can Joe Biden Keep it together?,” brought a raft of responses via email and social media. Many readers share my fear the presumed Democratic presidential nominee may not possess the mental stamina to win in November.

Even supporters of President Donald J. Trump are fretting.

Kevin O’Doherty of Naples, Florida, wrote: “I cringe at the thought of a debate with Trump, much less three of them. Even though I am a Trump supporter … I worry that Biden’s cognitive ability or lack of will be on display for all to see … and ridicule. It is not right or fair to do to a 77-year-old man.

“It is a shame that the party of FDR, JFK and Barack Obama is nominating a senile senior when there is so much talent among its ranks.”

While I think voters should be concerned abo...

Astronauts aboard SpaceX capsule parachute into the Gulf of Mexico, in first splashdown landing in 45 years

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Two NASA astronauts returned to Earth on Sunday in a dramatic, retro-style splashdown, their capsule parachuting into the Gulf of Mexico to close out an unprecedented test flight by Elon Musk’s SpaceX company.

It was the first splashdown by U.S. astronauts in 45 years, with the first commercially built and operated spacecraft to carry people to and from orbit. The return clears the way for another SpaceX crew launch as early as next month and possible tourist flights next year.

Test pilots Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken rode the SpaceX Dragon capsule back to Earth less than a day after departing the International Space Station and two months after blasting off from Florida...

White Sox’ Cuban connection stays front and center

Category: سانتایمز Comments: No comments

White Sox manager Rick Renteria went with his top-heavy Cuban lineup a second straight day Sunday, and why not? The first time produced a 21-hit onslaught in an 11-5 win over the Royals Saturday.

When Renteria lined up center fielder Luis Robert, third baseman Yoan Moncada, first baseman Jose Abreu and catcher Yasmani Grandal in the first four slots in his lineup Saturday it marked the first time four Cuban born players occupied a lineup as such.

“That’s pretty cool to hear,” Renteria said. “Actually one of the guys [Abreu] brought it to my attention. He was pretty excited about it, actually. It’s neat and on top of that you had a Cuban born pitcher [Gio Gonzalez] on the mound or at least of Cuban descent to start the game.”

The foursome combined to go 11-for-22 with four RBI...

‘Be brave for 30 seconds’ – and 159 years

Elmer Ephraim Ellsworth and LaShandra Smith-Rayfield do not know each other. Yet. But I would like to introduce them. Well, at least I would like to introduce Col. Ellsworth to Ms. Smith-Rayfield.

Sadly, I cannot likewise introduce Ms. Smith-Rayfield to Col. Ellsworth, time’s arrow being what it is. But I fancy he would have approved.

Smith-Rayfield confronted a group displaying a large Confederate battle flag towel on the beach in Evanston last week. She didn’t just happen by. Those who just happened by did what most people do when just happening by something wrong: nothing.

Smith-Rayfield hurried there and made a stand.

”It makes me uncomfortable in a place that I pay taxes and rent,” she told those sprawled before the rebel flag. “That right there is a racist symbol of hate...

Parking meter deal Chicagoans love to hate gets worse — again

Category: سانتایمز Comments: No comments

The stay-at-home shutdown triggered by the coronavirus turned the streets of downtown Chicago into a virtual ghost town. But private investors who leased Chicago’s parking meters had plenty of cushion to absorb the blow.

Chicago’s parking meter system raked in another $138.7 million in 2019, allowing private investors to recoup their entire $1.16 billion investment and then some with more than 60 years to go on the 75-year lease.

Four underground city-owned parking garages took in $34.8 million in 2019, while the privatized Chicago Skyway generated just under $92 million in cash, separate audits of those assets show.

Not a penny of those revenues went to ease the burden on Chicago taxpayers that will almost certainly get worse to fill a $700 million hole in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s $11...

Champagne losing its fizz as global coronavirus pandemic clobbers sales

Category: سانتایمز Comments: No comments

REIMS, France — Champagne is losing its fizz. For months, lockdown put the cork on weddings, dining out, parties and international travel — all key sales components for the French luxury wine marketed for decades as a sparkling must at any celebration.

Producers in France’s eastern Champagne region, headquarters of the global industry, say they’ve lost an estimated 1.7 billion euros ($2 billion) in sales for this year, as turnover fell by a third — a hammering unmatched in living memory, and worse than the Great Depression.

They expect about 100 million bottles to be languishing unsold in their cellars by the end of the year.

“We are experiencing a crisis that we evaluate to be even worse than the Great Depression” of 1929, said Thibaut Le Mailloux of the Champagne Committee, kn...
