+ S.W., a Downers Grove, Ill., reader, regarding a California man who approached a bank teller, produced a note demanding cash and was told no, at which point he turned around and left the bank, writes:
“It appears you can add bank robbers to the list of things that aren’t what they used to be.”
+ Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell regarding Donald Trump’s presidential campaign:
