FROM William Neikirk
The Tax-Man Cometh On this tax day, there's general agreement that the best that can be said about America's tax system is that it's needlessly complex. At worst, it is broken. The American federal tax system was last reformed in 1986. Now members of both parties are saying that reform is needed again, and it just might become an issue in the presidential campaign.

Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?
