|Sen. Orrin Hatch, Trump's tax reform ally on Capitol Hill|
|As Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah emerged from a Senate floor speech April 24, reporters peppered him about tax reform. While he voiced strong support for President Trump, he doubted his proposed 15 percent corporate tax rate would get through Congress. “Excuse me, the White House is calling me right now, I've gotta go,” he said, and stepped into an elevator. Pretty much everything Mr. Trump cares about runs through the Senate Finance Committee that Hatch chairs: tax reform, infrastructure, trade, and revisions to health care. |

|Hear this, oh those who listen|
|In a recent skit on “Saturday Night Live,” two actors in a mock TV ad invite Americans to live in a new planned city called The Bubble. A video of this skit might be useful to show before many public events in the United States these days, such as talks by controversial speakers at public universities or at town hall meetings with elected leaders. By and large, civility and free speech remain the norm in academia and politics. |

|Attack on Afghan base a reminder: Taliban pose the greater threat|
|Disguised perfectly as Afghan soldiers, the 10 attackers launched the Taliban's spring offensive in spectacular fashion, rolling undetected into one of the most secure army bases in northern Afghanistan, and killing some 170 recruits as they left Friday prayers. The Taliban attack at Mazar-e Sharif's Camp Shaheen appeared aimed at further undermining Afghanistan's embattled leaders and security forces. It also served as a reminder that the Taliban, and not the so-called Islamic State (ISIS), still represent the most potent Islamist insurgency threatening the Afghan government. |
