The crisis of sexual assault on campus is very real, but likely not what you understand it to be. Some parents have conveniently brushed-off what has tragically escalated to a weekly flow of news stories about a rape at this college or that college.

I'm not surprised when crap is written that perpetuates rape culture. That doesn't make it less important to call out and it certainly doesn't make the discussions that crop up around the idiocy less valid. Which brings us to George Will.

BSN assumes that a) man-made carbon is accelerating warming & b) the Bergdahl swap was a 51-49 decision. Within these boundries, Lowry/Reagan clash over the EPA rule's "war on coal" and the price we paid to bring home the Afghan War's last American POW. In both, Obama acts on "Yes we can" while GOP critics say "Yes but."

Government today is a tangled jungle of incoherent law and regulation because we look to words, rather than personal responsibility, as the way of safeguarding against error.

The degradation of history and language in the service of political argument is a profound mistake and a profound danger. America will survive Sterling and Bundy and similars. It will be harder to survive the embrace of their vocabulary by mainstream leaders.
