    The news that the Secret Service’s budget for the year has already been exhausted covering the protection of the Trump family, a large group who travel a lot, raises some issues.

    WASHINGTON — When John Adams wrote into Massachusetts’ Constitution a commitment to a “government of laws and not of men,” he probably assumed that the rule of law meant the rule of laws, no matter how many laws there might be. He could not have imagined the modern proliferation and complexity of laws, or how subversive this is of the rule of law.

    The apparent death of 10 sailors Monday after the USS John S. McCain, a Navy destroyer, collided with an oil tanker near Singapore was the fourth accident involving a Navy warship in Asian waters this year. This awful record shows the necessity of Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson’s decision to launch a broad inquiry into Navy operations to see if there is anything the Navy can do to improve its training or its management practices and make such mishaps less likely.

    There is a surface reasonableness to the new Afghanistan policy President Donald Trump unveiled Monday. The present contingent of nearly 10,000 U.S. troops will be increased by a modest, unspecified amount, but only to help Afghan forces — not to nation-build or directly fight — to prevent the West Asian nation from again becoming a terrorist hotbed. No departure date for U.S. troops was announced, as President Barack Obama did in 2014, to show an open-ended U.S. commitment to the civilian government in Kabul. Pressure also will be put on neighboring Pakistan to get the nominal U.S. ally to stop its double game — having its leaders voice support for Washington while its intelligence agency helps Islamic militants, including the Taliban forces who gave al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden an Afghan haven from which to scheme the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

    Lost in coverage of the eclipse and the day-to-day deluge of politics and partisanship was a remarkable discovery, one that should, at the very least, offer some perspective.

    The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution means nothing if its highest ideals are not staunchly protected during times of unrest.

    The recent heartbreaking events in Virginia remind me that the way our brains work has its downsides.

    Government scientists worried their long-in-the-works assessment of climate change would be suppressed. The concern hardly rates as overwrought. Scott Pruitt, the chief of the Environmental Protection Agency, says he does not believe carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming. President Donald Trump called the concept a hoax pushed by the Chinese. (Or maybe he was joking?)

    Venezuela’s descent into dictatorship is destroying the country. Its natural and human resources should make it among Latin America’s wealthiest nations, but instead it’s in economic, political and security ruin because of the brutal rule of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
