When you press Democrats on their uninspiring deeds -- their lousy free trade deals, for example -- they reply that this is the best anyone could have done. But let's choose a locale where Democratic rule is virtually unopposed, a place where Republican obstruction and sabotage can't taint this experiment.
On Crane Beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts, a shallow kiddie pool laid close to the Atlantic Ocean. According to a recent story by the The New York Times, the equivalent of that kiddie pool is Boston.
Moving a company, especially a large one, is neither easy nor simple. There are many reasons for a firm not to relocate its headquarters. GE, which is the largest manufacturing company based in the United States, needed compelling reasons to pull up stakes in Connecticut and move to Boston.
The era of "embarrassment" over Jewish "ghetto culture" is long over. A major effort is needed to go beyond one-week workshops and find a way to provide substantial support for offerings in traditional Jewish music and culture at all levels of Jewish and general education...and, if not now, when?
The modern day fight for LGBT rights began in a bar and there was a generation who fought for those rights but did not live long enough to see them come to fruition. The least I can do is raise a glass to them every now and then and perhaps under the disco lights, steal a kiss from my husband.

The I-Team's May 1992 story unleashed a torrent of local and national coverage focused on Porter and other pedophile priests in Boston. Within days, I, along with investigative producer Paul Toomey, began getting phone calls about other priests including John Geoghan, the priest who was the focus of the Spotlight coverage 10 years later.
It's too hard to sit still, and there's no point to it. Life equals kinetic energy, which is why Verunka Vlkova-Fierro plugs in the 6-foot-long sign as soon as she makes her entrance into the living room.
Now more than ever, women are taking risks, and following their hearts. They know their personal power in creating change, see the benefits of leaning into uncertainty, and aren't ashamed to leave their filter behind. But we need to keep pushing.
I've dedicated my career, as a professional sport climber, to closing the achievement gap. I do this by seeking out ascents that have not been conquered by a female.
