No doubt you have heard about the "race card." Today let us discuss another card in the pack of rhetorical tricks, the "Marx card." (Not Groucho Marx, although he had a better sense of absurdity).
Nelson Mandela is being remembered as a towering giant, the sort of hero of whom President Barack Obama said, "few of us will share space with on this Earth again." It is hard to say enough about the courage, wisdom, sacrifice and persistence the former freedom fighter and later South Africa's president showed in paving the way for an end to apartheid and the birth of a new nation. Equally remarkable was his leadership in forgiving and reaching out to former adversaries without bitterness.
SINGAPORE - The United States and 11 other nations negotiating a free trade zone stretching from Chile to Japan failed to reach a final agreement at talks in Singapore, but indicated they were closing in on a landmark deal.

ST. PAUL, Minnesota - Minnesota Agriculture Commissioner Dave Frederickson is leading a trade mission to Vietnam and Thailand starting this week.
BANGKOK - Chris Brummitt, Vietnam chief of bureau for The Associated Press, has been promoted to the new role of Southeast Asia news editor, responsible for text coverage and operations across Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
ST. LOUIS - Fred Waters, a longtime Associated Press photographer who covered everything from the Korean and Vietnam wars to construction of the Gateway Arch, has died, his daughter said Thursday.
Vice President Joe Biden is not noted for his diplomatic skills. He is, however, noted for being plain-spoken, even disconcertingly blunt. He may need the latter trait more than the former during his current week-long tour of East Asia.
WASHINGTON - The reason Brandon Beckham doesn't have health insurance is that he doesn't want health insurance - and he isn't going to let the Affordable Care Act force him to buy coverage.
WASHINGTON - I'm not so sure the nation is well-served these days, or perhaps ever was, by limiting the terms of its chief executive. It seemed like a good idea at the time following Franklin D. Roosevelt's four elections to the presidency, but the negatives, I believe, have come to outweigh the positives.

China has made an ominous move in claiming sovereignty over the air, and the Obama administration has appropriately responded with B-52 bombers.

MORRILTON, Arkansas - A Vietnam-based company announced Thursday it will spend $5 million to start a furniture factory at a vacant Arkansas plant and hire 75 workers.
HANOI, Vietnam - The death toll from flooding caused by heavy rains in central Vietnam has risen to 41, with about 80,000 people forced from their homes, disaster officials said Tuesday.

UNITED NATIONS - China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, Cuba and Algeria won seats Tuesday on the U.N. Human Rights Council, riling independent human rights groups who said their election undermined the rights watchdog's credibility.
Say it's 1960, you are 16, raised by Democrats and fascinated by politics. Because there is someone like John F. Kennedy running for president, you're also excited.
WASHINGTON - Retired Air Force Major Jesse M. Baltazar, a veteran of World War II, Korea and Vietnam, had breakfast with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden Monday before making his way to the World War II Memorial.
Many people still remember where they were the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated - Friday, Nov. 22, 1963 - but what about the day before? What was life like for Americans on that Thursday, just before so much changed for the nation and the world?
FORT WORTH, Texas - Fighter pilot Jim Latham had just marked a target of abandoned supply trucks in a heavily populated area of North Vietnam when the right wing of his aircraft tore off.
