New York City received a lot of attention recently with a bold promise made to some of its youngest residents: Mayor Bill de Blasio ran on a campaign to fund full-day public preschool for all New York City children through a modest increased income tax on residents making more than $500,000 a year. Although Mayor de Blasio's tax proposal was not approved by the state legislature or supported by New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo, the legislature did approve statewide funding for pre-K that included a $300 million increase for New York City's preschool program. New York City is moving forward for children -- and it isn't the only major city and school district making strides towards providing high-quality public preschool programs to as many children as possible. Several large districts that have been doing this for a while are already seeing strong results.

Hate Speech Radio,
Democrats Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Hakeem Jeffreys of New York want to clamp down on what can be said on radio under the rubric of "hate speech," and it's a terrible idea. Government should stay as far away from broadcast content as possible.
For so many of us, Easter is not just a religious holiday -- it is a personal celebration and re-commitment. How do we personally experience the resurrection? Every year, as I hear and say "He is risen," I remember that it's not just a theological affirmation, but something I need personally.

Let us be clear. You pay a local service bill. It has charges on it that you must pay and you can't get service without it. If Verizon doesn't want to count these charges, then why shouldn't the customer have the right to not pay what's not being counted?
With Woody Allen at the helm, Zach Braff in a starring role, and a rich ensemble cast that earns both laughs and applause, Bullets Over Broadway has a lot to offer.
Apparently that's just the way they play politics in New Jersey. Screw your enemies and reward your friends. And that's exactly what I don't want to see in the White House, or in Congress or in any statehouse in the U.S. We had that with Nixon and look what happened.

Not a bad idea at all, making one's own decisions. Unfortunately, it's not always easy today if those are health care decisions, especially if you're a woman, especially if you're poor, especially if you live in the many, many areas of the U.S. without access to a women's health clinic.
