Thanks to Matt Kemp and his beautiful, empathetic swing, we still have the Dodgers. At least for another day or two. Let's see what the Gods have in store for them in Game 3 in St. Louis Monday. Hold your breath, LA, it might be another lesson in... humility.
There he is, still fighting the Iraq War. Still insisting the Iraq War was the right thing to do. And still hiding behind his favorite cover, how "history will tell us" whether an action was right or wrong.
To see why Bush and so many executives look to Drucker's work for guidance, here are five of the best lessons from the man himself... lessons that may very well change the way you think about business, forever.
As Roberts desperately struggles to cling to office, he is trying to hoodwink the voters one more time. He never expected that the fact he doesn't have a Kansas home would be exposed. But he's been misleading about more than his address for years.
The storyline has long been that Hart challenged the press to follow him around and, in the post-Watergate spirit of enterprising investigative journalism, the press did just that, fearlessly uncovering, well, er, what?
How fast we've moved from peace to war, from hope to despair. Of course, like so many reports about U.S. military action, there was no mention of civilian casualties or other "collateral damage."
Here is a nation they maligned so much a decade ago which now is doing for President Obama what it refused to do for Bush -- join in what neocons like to do best: bomb, bomb, bomb. Should the neocons be grateful to the French?
Obama's speech is addressed to a nation with a dead imagination. Doing "something" about the Islamic State means dropping bombs on it. Bombing runs don't inconvenience a politician's constituents and always seem like stalwart action: a squirt of Raid on an infestation of bugs.
Here are five things to consider as we discuss this latest insertion of US military personnel, money, and weaponry into, potentially, another Mideast quagmire -- this one being pitched as the "good" or "justified" Iraq War.
Unlike picking a side during an election, debating a health care law or arguing about who should be taxed at what level, advocating for addressing climate change won't come back to bite you in the ass. It's different from what we have become accustomed to.
As the US increasingly becomes more embroiled in the Syrian civil war over the next few years, there will be the distinct possibility of "mission creep". Wikipedia defines mission creep as "the expansion of a project or mission beyond its original goals."
The current public debate and wave of articles about how colleges can do a better job of providing access to students from low-income families reminds me that for over a century, most colleges have had an affirmative action policy for rich, well-connected white kids. It is called "legacy" admissions.
Cheney's factual errors, misleading statements and hypocrisy are a continuation of his eight years as vice president. Blaming Obama for everything that is not right in the world does not help this country deal with the challenges it faces in the Middle East.
Obama defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primaries and took office on the premise that he would wind down America's role in Middle Eastern and Central Asian conflicts. But his legacy will be the contrary.
When I heard about the death of Maria Fernandes, an exhausted worker who died while napping in her car between two of her four jobs, I felt an my immense sadness that quickly turned to anger. Maria was a victim of an economic condition that grinds up low-wage workers, particularly women.
Unless President Obama pulls back quickly, his administration risks becoming absorbed in another interminable, unnecessary war in Mesopotamia with unpredictable but almost certainly negative consequences.
