The only things that really matter in Republican politics today are name recognition, a degree of celebrity, and the ability to make outrageous statements that appeal to a minority of voters.
I join the American family in mourning the death of former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden to brain cancer. He was a joy to his loved ones, an advocate for our most vulnerable, and a Bronze Star Army Captain who fought for veterans and military families. Many politicians preach family values -- Beau Biden lived them.
Exelon's ultimate goal: Force Pepco's customers, including the people of Washington, D.C., to subsidize Exelon's expensive nuclear power plants in other states. D.C. residents have until May 26 to submit comments to the Public Service Commission.
When a localized slang term pops up in a habitat far removed from its own, it will cause some heads to turn. And that's exactly what happened along a fairly busy stretch of highway.
More than half the nation's Fortune 500 companies are incorporated in Delaware. So Delaware corporate law affects everyone. A recent case kicked off the need to recalibrate Delaware law. Here's what happened.
Since the Marijuana Policy Project was founded 20 years ago, I've oftentimes written a list of the top 10 victories at the end of each year. 2014 was either the best or second-best year in 20 years, depending on how you weigh the legalization victories in Colorado and Washington in 2012.
To be able to not only walk, but to run is a beautiful thing.
In the wake of the big election victories on November 4, many people are asking, "What's next for the push to legalize marijuana in the United States?"
Delaware courts often set standards for what corporations are permitted to do. In May, the Delaware Supreme Court ruled that a corporation's board of directors can unilaterally amend the company's bylaws to include a "loser pays" provision that shifts all litigation expenses to a plaintiff who sues the company for intra-corporate wrongdoing.
I've watched my share of Judge Judy and understand that the likelihood of ending up in court increases in direct proportion to the amount of jewelry you wear, the number and placement of tattoos visible on your neck and the times you use "conversate" in a sentence. Well into my 50s and woefully lacking tattoos, I thought any potential to have a run-in with the law was well behind me. I was wrong.
James Forten's vision -- and the many courageous stories of others along the Delaware -- remind us that freedoms are hard won by those willing to sacrifice to make the world a better place.
Congress and the Obama administration cannot wait any longer to come to agreement on reforming our corporate tax code to remove the loophole that creates this perverse incentive for sending job overseas and, instead, incentivize job growth at home.
In mid-May I introduced, Madeline Carl and Meredith Jacob, the traveling filmmakers from Stephens College. On schedule (more or less) and already ...
Approximately 35 outfits from the British import are on display at the mansion-turned-museum, along with backstory on the designs and details (you can get close enough to see the frayed ends on one gown; another vintage piece ripped during wearing and had to be carefully mended with matching fabric).
In spring 2010, Delaware was one of two states to win the first of Race to the Top's four-year grants, making this month's anniversary an appropriate time to ask whether the multi-billion dollar project has been worth the taxpayers' money.
I received a text from my son in the middle of the night. It read, "I love you." My first thought was to text back: "Are you okay?!" And then I remembered. He's on mile 26 of a marathon.
