Not often do I have the chance to meet with royals who care deeply about orphans. Unable to get out of meetings in Manhattan, I did the next best thi...
As a teacher who is an innovative and outspoken advocate for education and educators, and who takes his profession very seriously, I have only one thing to say to Jeff Bliss and his now historic rant: Bravo, Jeff.
On April 25 -- Thursday evening -- American icon and humble hero George W. Bush took one small step for man, one slip-and-fall for humanity as he reen...
I cannot imagine a circumstance in which he would get my vote. (Well, maybe I can -- if for instance he were running against Ted Cruz.) But there are things about the man himself that I greatly admire.
Many patients experience a "honeymoon period" following their surgery, during which it seems pretty easy. However, unless there is a fundamental change in the relationship with food, bariatric surgery can feel like a permanent diet that continues to consume their life.
In the wake of a violent attack, it is easy to target minorities for group blame. With sufficient provocation, any crowd might turn into a mob.
Cutting tax rates won't restore jobs and prosperity. We should be talking about the investments that will work, starting with preschool.
What's our problem? If you listen to the state's leaders, the explanation is that New Jersey's taxes are too high and its government too big. If we just cut both tax rates and public services, the state will bounce back. At least that's what we're told... over and over again.

We've seen this before; three other districts in New Jersey -- Paterson, Newark, and Jersey City -- are already under state control, and have few positive results to show for it.
Amid the mish-mash of potential presidential contenders at last weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference, pundit Ann Coulter didn't disappoint her supporters by brandishing once again the language of racialist politics.
As long as the right keeps doing what it keeps doing, the great conservative crack-up will bring two big winners: Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.
I previewed the highly-anticipated findings of the "Growth and Opportunity" project by the GOP. It is estimated that 71 percent of Latinos, 73 percent of Asians and 93 percent of African-Americans voted for President Obama last November.
Policy-wise, the GOP is an entity that literally lacks any new ideas, has no interest in governing and has rejected all of its own policy positions from as recently as early 2008.
In order to take the White House in 2016, the GOP must win traditionally blue states like New York and New Jersey to amass the electoral votes necessary to win the presidency. Only a guy like Christie, not Miami's Rubio or Louisiana's Jindal, can achieve this.
The majority of us would be outraged by, and would not stand for, the same slandering of Asian, black, female, gay, elderly, or disabled Americans. Why, then, do we tolerate those who focus the same vitriol on people who are overweight?
