It’s All About the Children 0

“It’s all about the children.” Time and again, we hear this refrain from everyone who ever talks about education, from every angle. It’s been the purported basis of speeches, documentaries and now lawsuits. But how can it be all about the children when you have some — under the guise of “education reform” — undermining […]

Demonstrations in Ferguson Raise Critical Questions 0

I’ve never thought of myself as having any special wisdom. But they say wisdom comes from experience, and sadly, I’ve had enough experience with flare-ups like Ferguson, Missouri, that wisdom has come unbidden. I say “flare-up” because, like an ill-placed match, one event can ignite others, causing responses of outrage. Too often, though, the media […]

When will Ferguson heal? 0

President Obama spoke Thursday about the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri — an unrest that began in response to the shooting of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old boy with no criminal record.

Remember when Mitt Romney told a citizen, “Corporations are people, my friend”? This once-false belief was made real by Citizens United — one of the worst-ever Supreme Court decisions in recent times. Because of this judicial ruling, corporations are not only really people — they are also citizens. And as we all learned in Civics […]

Our Radical Congress 0

Two-thirds of the public opposes impeaching President Obama. Americans take removing an elected president seriously. Why, then, is the issue being treated so casually? Speaker John Boehner says he’s not personally advocating impeachment. I’ll grant him that. But, Boehner is doing something worse: He’s toying with impeachment. I don’t know how he can play a […]

Brazile: How the ’60s shaped my life 0

I’m looking forward to Thursday night’s installment of CNN’s “The Sixties” with some trepidation. True, it’s another excellent installment in the series. Capturing the highlights and essence of a decade, especially one as turbulent and historically significant as the ’60s, is not easy. Given the controversial nature of many of the events — at the […]

In Whom We Trust? 0

We’re past the July 4 celebrations and the All-Star Break. NFL training camps haven’t started. Congress is poised to recess for August — the pause before the storm leading up to the midterm elections. “Pause” is the operative word.
