People who don't test well defend themselves by saying they're "street smart." I'm not sure what that means. If they take the SAT exam in the middle of the street, I suspect their score would still be pretty low.
MSNBC celebrates host Chris Matthews' latest book, "Tip and the Gipper."
There is a major barrier blocking legislators from Tallahassee to Washington, D.C. from doing their job.
If Mr. Watters had understood anything about other cultures, other than his own little world in the U.S., he might, have realized how insulting and inappropriate his questions were. But then that is the point for Fox News.
There is solid theology behind O'Reilly's claim that he was directed by the Holy Spirit to write his book. One can disagree with or challenge this claim, and we should have honest and vigorous debates about contentious issues such as religion and politics. But these debates must be done in order to understand, not to win, and never to ridicule.
Let's not forget that when Jesus spoke, he was speaking with a political voice that eventually led to his unjust death and ultimate resurrection. That we miss Jesus' sharply political teachings says more about us than him.
In one particular footnote, the authors announce that it was the liberal (yes, they used that word) Sadducees who were wealthy and aligned with Rome. Unfortunately, liberal is not a word many would assign to the Jewish sect only using the Torah and denying the progressive theology of the Pharisees.
It's all becoming clear now. House Republicans are just really big fans of Douglas Adams -- that's been their plan all along.
Taking a job at a multi-level marketing firm would be a tacky signpost of any first-tier politician's professional trajectory. It's especially unsightly when that politician is Antonio Villaraigosa.
Sure, NYFW has its token snobs and elitist Upper East Siders, but there are important businesspeople, editors-in-chief, bloggers, columnists, PR personnel and photographers.
The most dangerous thing of this entire situation is that Gupta is still licensed as a doctor and has just now come across the epiphany of overwhelming common sense.
I thank Mr. O'Reilly for coming here. We appreciate the business and hope he'll come back soon. But do it as a tourist, as a student, as a wildlife enthusiast or sportsman. Alaska is here for people to enjoy, not haphazardly decode.
Beyond the philosophical and medical argument of what makes a "real" man or woman, there is the simple level of civility. When you deliberately attack someone's core identity you have foregone the basic rules of decency.
I think Don Lemon, Bill O'Reilly and Rev. Al Sharpton would all agree that we need more programs like the "Kappa League" to ensure the educational success of young black men. Doing so will increase the level of economic success of society, as a whole. What do you think?
Don Lemon's self-identification as being black, gay or from any other marginalized group does not give him license to speak disparagingly about a group's culture because he obviously experiences this culture from a standpoint of privilege that blinds him from reality.
