2018 must be year Trump is ousted

Only a seriously deluded person like President Trump could seriously believe the Nunes' memo (created with White House help) would cut off the Mueller investigation. All it has done is given not only domestic opponents but the entire world (which will now think twice about sharing intelligence with us) a window into the ugliness of his desperation.

So now added to the attempted destruction of environmental protection, preservation of public lands and diplomacy around the globe (among so many other things) is the attempted destruction of the FBI (which since J. Edgar's death has regained its reputation).

All this in little over a year.

2018 has to be the year when Trump is ousted. And all his contemptible attempts overturned.

Proctor watch display worth trip to MWPAI

One of Central New York's great treasures is currently on view at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute.

The exhibit, "Jewels of Time: Watches from the Proctor Collection," has 80 of the collection's 300 watches on display. The collection is internationally recognized and is considered to be one of the very best in America.

These timepieces were symbols of prestige, style and wealth. Each shows incredible craftsmanship. There are early watches such as the 17th-century pocket sundial and as late as a 1910 watch colorfully enameled with cockerels. Some have automatons or figures that strike little bells on the quarter hour. Others are in unusual shapes like a lamb, a beetle or a skull.

This is an exhibit Central New York can take pride in. The collection is yet another fine gift by the Proctor families to the area. Be sure to see it!

"Jewels of Time" runs until April 29 and is free. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
