DeSantis's Super PAC


Never Back Down (the DeSantis Super PAC) is breaking every rule in the book (DeSantis Super PAC's Plea: 'We Need 50 Million Bucks," New York Times, September 2, 2023: A16). It should be stopped in its tracks immediately. 
Alas that is unlikely to happen with a toothless Federal Elections Commission.

Mr. Rowland Chen (Letters, June 2, 2023) suggests that AI procedures cannot come up with creative solutions to problems because the information that which we already know.
I disagree. One of the techniques used to develop creative solutions is to examine the situation through two frames of reference simultaneously. In the conjunction of these two perspectives, innovative solutions are to be found.

Ukraine War

 We now know the two likely candidates in the presidential election (Biden Declares 2024 Bid; Possible Rematch in Sight, New York Times, April 26, 2023: A1, A12).

We also know very clearly where Mr. Biden stands in defense of Ukraine.

Mr. Trump and his associates have had dealings with both Kyiv and Moscow.

Mr. Trump needs to state clearly his position going forward with the Ukraine war.

Trump and Biden's Secret Documents

 I think we are down to two counts against Mr. Trump now: January 6th and Georgia.

At least in the court of public opinion, there can do longer be any case for Mr. Trump’s handling of secret documents.

 The current leaks are doing real damage to Ukraine.

It just shows that justice must be applied swiftly otherwise reality gets in the way.
