The war on privacy is already over. We can stop discussing if and how corporations and the government will take our most personal possessions. It's ti...
Americans are now being tracked as they've never been tracked before. What is normal and accepted these days sounds like a tinfoil-hatted paranoiac's delusion from just a few decades ago, in fact.
It was fascinating to listen to my Senate colleagues from across the country as they discussed what people in their states are experiencing now and the threats they face from climate change -- including extreme weather. Climate change is real, and it is happening all around us -- from coast to coast.
The situation in Syria will only get worse. Foreign policy experts in Washington warned on Thursday that the war in Syria will "grind on."
When I first heard Caplis two-whacks theory, I didn't know all these details about Gardner's softball campaign history, but I still thought Caplis had it right just based on Udall's appeal and war chest, as well as all the uncertainty we see on the 2014 political landscape.

Whether a final plan emerges from the House or not, immigration reform has broad public support. Americans agree it is time for action, but are looking to its leaders to resolve the remaining conflicts.
AIPAC is now perceived by Washington insiders as a pressure group (like the NRA), primarily allied with the Republicans, which uses its influence to get members of Congress to take positions not in the public interest.
Survival is not a partisan issue. We need all hands on deck.
Silence has been valued since humans started traveling, of course. But the debate about cellphone chatter on planes has touched a nerve, and if the law passes, it could even do something unprecedented: establish that air travelers have a right to a little peace and quiet on their journey.
Putin's invasion of the Crimea is already costing Russia dearly. President Obama is steering the correct course when he strengthens the region to offset Russian 'exercises,' but the real punishment here will be financial and sanctions.
She may well look back and find that training for her space walk was easier than preparing to take the helm of NOAA.
So what draws us to these shows especially at a time when the public has so much disdain for government? Why does there seem to be an inverse relationship between "approval ratings" of the shows and the real-life counterparts of their characters?
