Richard Elfers' last column maintained the mantras the liberals chant about the terrible rich 1 percent and their ways. Of course his laser focus pinpointed Donald Trump and his supposed inheritance of $100 million to $300 million, a figure disputed by Trump and his siblings.

Rather than hate the "arrogant rich" mind your own house and do what it takes to achieve more if that is so important. Also, considering Trump started with a mere supposed $100+ million, had multiple bankruptcies yet turned it into $8-plus billion, he wasn't sitting about complaining.

The first week of #SouthKingSlowdown on southbound Interstate 5 in SeaTac and Des Moines is in the books. For the most part drivers heeded the warnings and used alternative routes or transit. That kept the longest backups to about 4 miles, which created delays of about 30 minutes.

When I read of the interactions Jesus has with people I am always floored by how simple yet profound they are. I was recently reading Luke 5:27-39 and was challenged by how Jesus so beautifully changes a man's life with two words.
