And while we got overwhelming messages from the Andrew Yang, Bernie Sanders, Marianne Williamson and Tulsi Gabbard camps (in that order), here are some of the best responses for the candidates mentioned in all the responses: 1. Andrew Yang: A policy-focused contender Letter to the editor: Andrew Yang stands out to me for several reasons: He proposes health insurance for all, making marijuana legal in every state, a $1,000 universal income for people over 18 — which will more than likely cut down on crimes and reform the welfare system — jobs for convicted felons, criminal justice reform. and last but not least, his statement of being to harsh on some criminals. I stand behind Yang. Sherry Craig; Seneca, S.C. Letter to the … [Read more...] about Yang, Williamson, Sanders: The 2020 candidates standing out to readers

Jim Yong Kim’s decision in January to step down as president of the World Bank means he is now in line to head the international community’s flagship development body. Kim’s decision to accept a job at a Wall Street private equity firm went down badly with staff at the bank, who were unimpressed that he could make more of an impact in global development through his lucrative career move.
