Letters to the Editor
Backing Francis on economics Antony Davies and James R. Harrigan claim Pope Francis' views on capitalism and free-market economics are wrong ("Francis is the pope, but he's no economic expert," Sunday). His familiarity with economics "is predicated on fallacy and fantasy," Davies and Harrigan observe.
UNTIL THREE years ago, my wife and I were like a lot of immigrants: Drawn to the U.S. by jobs better than what we could find at home, we saw ourselves as outsiders - temporary resident aliens, as the government called us. Even living in Washington, I followed U.S. politics with detachment, the way you'd watch a football game between two schools in states you've never been to. When our friends back home in Canada asked if we planned to stay, we'd shrug and joke about the weather being better.
