Speaker Boehner recently questioned President Barack Obama's plan to provide free community college for America's students. Instead of asking how our nation can afford this, we should be asking how our students can afford not to pursue higher education.
If you want to know the current state of the Republican Party, look no further than the activities that the party's leading presidential hopefuls have planned for this weekend. They are scrambling to win the support of theocrats, bigots and anti-immigrant extremists. What they don't seem to realize is that that will make it much harder for them to win the respect of the rest of us.
Is it too much to ask Jenny McCarthy to read a simple, well-researched article and properly educate herself about how no legitimate scientific studies have linked vaccines to autism? And then, to announce to the world she was wrong? It would help undo at least some of the damage she's done to public health and our country's children.
In my youth trying to be cool was a 24/7 job. I have cut this activity back to four hours a week. This allows me to sleep later and spend at least five hours every day in the state of bemusement.
This week over a thousand New Yorkers had the opportunity to "Celebrate America's Heroes" on the occasion of Emmy-winning TV and radio host Rita Cosby's 50th birthday to benefit the acclaimed organization, the Wounded Warrior Project.

One day we'll all be dead. And in heaven, everyone has a shitload of money. But for now, it's important that rich people acknowledge their mental deficiency. It will make the rest of our lives much easier. Or maybe Donald Trump is just naturally dumb?
My fear is that we are beginning to look at our personal technology as a totem. The kind of totem that people once thought (and some still do) protected them from bullets or arrows or bears -- bottom line: an unnatural death.
When it comes to matters of the heart and wallet, we wanted to know what these life and finance gurus carry around with them.
In America, people with lots of money can easily avoid the consequences of bad bets and big losses by cashing out at the first sign of trouble. But workers who move to a place like Atlantic City for a job and invest in a home have no such protection.
Let's take a look at the Republican lineup to face Hillary Clinton and examine in a "nutshell" (excuse the expression) their respective appeal and chance of making the final cut.
Ebola is coming and we're all going to die!!!! Actually, not really. But if you watch CNN, you'll definitely start to think so.
Do you think you knew all the basic human resources questions hiring companies like to ask? What are your strengths? Weaknesses? HR 101, I call them. Familiar?
The property market in Brazil appears to be heating up and, mark my words, I plan to dive in with the zeal of seasoned real estate pros like Donald Trump or that Barbara woman from Shark Tank.
