Obama a marker on post-racial path 0

Politicians and historians love to use the word “crossroads.” It’s become as American, and cliched, as “Mom’s apple pie.” The historian Shelby Foote, wrote, “The Civil War defined us as what we are and it opened us to being what we became, good and bad things. … It was the crossroads of our being, and it was a hell of a crossroads.”

The radicalization of our politics 0

The new year has picked up where 2012 left off, with America being unnecessarily pushed, again, to the edge of a fiscal cliff.
