Corn & Christie debate the need for auto safety regulation on 50th of Unsafe at Any Speed (consensus yes) & for Net Neutrality (split decision). Also, do Bill-O's "war stories" matter since he's a) an influential public figure or b) a smug, blustery braggart as his business model?
Violence against women and girls is an epidemic of global proportions. Transcending geographic borders, economic and social class, religion and ethnicity, violence impacts women of all ages, in all communities around the world.
By now, if the telecom companies had kept their promises we might well have a national broadband network that would be the envy of the world. Instead many consider the United States a laggard in high speed, affordable broadband.
I now declare that I am going vegan about twice a month, usually after being disturbed by the mistreatment of yet another animal in the mainstream dairy industry. And then I'm at a restaurant and spy a cheese plate on the menu and it even includes Gruyere. Oh Gruyere, you are my weakness.

Instead, dogs and cats brought to these centers are transported to already overtaxed shelters in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Unless it is radically changed, the mayor's plan will squander public assets, enrich real estate developers, but do very little for the record number of people living in the shelter system or at risk of landing there.
Luxury -- defined by Miriam-Webster as both "a condition of great comfort, ease, and wealth" and "something that is not usually or always available."

New York is celebrated as a leader in our nation's quest for progress because ours is a city built by the labor of a thousand different shades and accents. Now, it is the time to lead once more by championing inclusion towards the Muslim-American community at a time of rising tension, mistrust, and, yes, Islamophobia.
