It’s about time Hillary Clinton is receiving the widespread admiration she always deserved. She is, once again, on the top of the list as the world’s most admired woman. It’s a wonder she was able to endure all that baiting, hounding, heel-nipping and blind hatred aimed at her all through the 1990s when her husband was president. She not only

I call them the “Ramen Shoppers.” They never fail to fill me with sympathy and sadness. You can see them in the grocery stores of all college towns. They are typically between the ages of 19 and 24. Pushing their grocery carts down the aisles, they take time intently pondering the price of this or that item. Sometimes they linger
