Anne Marie Slaughter's article in yesterday's New York Times lays bare how women caregivers are shut out of careers because America's workplaces have been built around an ideal worker norm that assumed that any deviance from complete availability signaled a lack of commitment to the company.

It's Time to Retire 'Mr. Mom'

Language both reflects and creates culture. It is a self-perpetuating system. If you can change the language you can alter the culture. The results are not always perfect. Stereotypes are hard to break down, but those who complain about political correctness are usually on the wrong side of the cultural shift.

American People Must Say No to Washington's Foolish Policy of Constant War

Doug Bandow | Posted 05.19.2015 | Politics
Doug Bandow

American foreign policy is controlled by fools. What else can one conclude from the bipartisan demand that the U.S. intervene everywhere all the time, irrespective of consequences? No matter how disastrous the outcome, the War Lobby insists that the idea was sound. Any problems obviously result, it is claimed, from execution, a matter of doing too little: too few troops engaged, too few foreigners killed, too few nations bombed, too few societies transformed, too few countries occupied, too few years involved, too few dollars spent. As new conflicts rage across the Middle East, the interventionist caucus' dismal record has become increasingly embarrassing.

2013-01-18-TEDplayvideo.jpgI know I should savor this time with my son, like a peppermint, but I can't help myself. If I've experienced something noteworthy, I want to write about it.

2013-01-18-TEDplayvideo.jpgI absolutely believe that we need policies and legislation that support working families, like paid sick days, affordable childcare and eldercare, family leave policies, and fair pay. But I also believe those of us who have the opportunity to make choices can better serve those of us who cannot, when we stop doing what we think we should do, and start doing what works for us
