Harry Reid's announcement that he will not stand for reelection to the Senate from Nevada in 2016 is a major loss for the climate movement -- and yet another signal that the U.S. Senate is being transformed by today's bifurcated, parliamentary politics into an institution almost unrecognizably different from its traditions.
There is little sign that America's key allies in this fight are paying attention to all of the elements of President Obama's multifaceted approach to countering violent extremism.

Who is the real Ted Cruz? His life is full of double identities and mixed loyalties. He was born in Canada, but puts on extra Texas bravado, going so far as to ask the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court whether or not his cowboy boots would be acceptable footwear.

In the Arkansas of my growing up, not only was smart good, but the prevailing philosophy was always to do the right thing, to show other people dignity, and to honor the common man. I'm sad to say that those days are gone. In today's Arkansas, we can't recognize a lie when it's spoon-fed to us, and we don't want to help anyone who isn't as white-bread as we are.
