I always enjoyed Carl Hiaasen’s humorous writing about the corruption in Miami, but I thought he was exaggerating. After reading Ken Silverstein’s “Miami: Where Luxury Real Estate Meets Dirty Money” [Oct. 21], I realize that Hiaasen has understated the level of corruption.

Richard Kim provided a refreshing note of dissent regarding the premature anointing of presidential candidates [“It’s Not Hillary’s Turn,” Oct. 21]. I share his lack of enthusiasm for being stampeded into accepting Hillary Clinton, or anyone, until there is an understanding of a candidate’s position on the issues that face America. Kim’s call for vigorous debate on these issues (e.g., “the yawning gap between the rich and everyone else”) to help determine the best person to lead us forward provided me with one more good reason to renew my subscription: the hope of finding that debate continuing in The Nation.

I admit that “It’s Not Hillary’s Turn” was not as frightening as its headline. Kim made some valid points, but I believe Hillary Clinton, like this president, understands the inequality plaguing this country.
If you print another piece as rebarbative as Richard Kim’s sexist assault on our former secretary of state, I will cancel my subscription. Meanwhile, when I walk my incontinent schnauzer I will take with me the pages containing Kim’s ugly words.

I already have an I’m Ready for Hillary bumper sticker on my car. Vera
I want Hillary for president because she knows how Washington runs, she knows where the bodies are buried, she knows everything and everyone, and she is tough. Elizabeth Warren is great, and I hope someday she’ll run for president, but she is too new to the game right now.
I agree with Richard Kim. I’m afraid Hillary Clinton would be the same old, same old in drag.
What’s needed is a hard-ass moderate-lib politician with clout, insider connections and a sure win just to keep the lunatics at bay. Hillary is likely the closest we have to that. Guest
Hillary is not a moderate-lib. As Bill Maher astutely observed, the Democrats have moved to the right, and the right-wingers have moved into the nuthouse. Hillary is a warmonger in Dem clothing. Mass Independent
