Diane W. Mufson: Public personas, self-images can vary greatly

When I was in grade school, my walk of a few blocks to school took me past the home of a girl I'll call Jenny. She appeared to have many things I thought would make my life better, such as a fine house, new toys and stylish clothing.

I was surprised that The Herald-Dispatch chose as the lead story in its Aug. 4 issue an Associated Press article about "retirement inequality." Interesting, but it is not front-page news. It's not even news. It is nothing more than a subliminal endorsement of the Democrat Party's campaign against "income inequality."

John Patrick Grace: Robin Williams' suicide reawakens awareness

Suicide -- death by one's own hand. Unimaginable for some of us, until depression deepens into a dark and fearsome void. Until this plague of the mind traps a soul in despair, and the soul begins to scream for a way out. Any way out of an emotional hopelessness. Any way out of searing pains that come to feel worse than a physical assault by cancer or even a blow torch.

Recently in Cincinnati, I got a daily Cincinnati Enquirer. What a shock. Not only has it shrunk, just bigger than a church bulletin, but it has no content.

Editorial: Unemployment is falling, but working poor remain

If you look only at the official unemployment rate, the end of our "jobless" recovery might be in sight.

Without touching on deeper issues, I would like to address a letter printed on Aug. 10 titled "Gaza issues not just about Israel."
