The mainstream media has been obsessed with comparing the Affordable Care Act (affectionately known as Obamacare) with various failures by the previou...
While the term Mardi Gras is certainly still synonymous with New Orleans, and we are certainly still known for music and indulgence, Hurricane Katrina may be the most defining event of our city in this century.
By seeking input and obtaining buy-in from the populace, de Blasio may have better luck than his predecessor even in the latter's chosen food arena.
The BP oil disaster was a technological and man-made problem, which required even greater amounts of technological wizardry to fix. After the well was finally (finally!) successfully capped, there was an enormous aftermath that went on for a very long period of time.
Is it okay to highlight website problems? Yes. Is it okay to push the president to get these tech issues resolved quickly? Absolutely. But when did having website problems become the same thing as not sending enough help to those dying and suffering in the midst of a devastating hurricane?
Pass Christian demonstrates what can be done when schools take seriously a commitment to excellence.
We love being a part of this resurgence. We are here to deliver Lights! Camera! Fashion! and help the people of this city make a statement. The vibrant city of New Orleans is undoubtedly what keeps us motivated in our business and helped us succeed.
While I'm trying to figure out how to pay for a new set of calculators, how to get Alisha to stop swearing at the Dean and how to help the math teacher teach geometry to a student with Traumatic Brain Injury, I also have to worry that one of them won't make it through any given night.

What we're seeing increasingly is an "action" itch by community members, both before and after disasters. And every time a group of neighbors gets together and provides aid, they are helping other communities across the globe learn how to do the same.
Natural disasters, such as the cyclone that just hit India, sometimes not only destroy homes and end lives but also trigger intense debates.
Tracie Grubb found her calling as a franchisee shortly after Hurricane Katrina washed away her home just days after her wedding. Instead of retreating when devastation struck, Tracie turned to business ownership as a way to rebuild her life, while also following her passion.
Erickson & Reagan debate the deus ex machina of Putin salvaging Obama's Syrian policy after the chemical attack. Looks like 44's smart audibles worked better that 42's "resoluteness" on Iraq and that McGovern's 'come home' approach has prevailed over McCain's more-war.
How very strange. I sort of came to, wading out of a fugue, and realized: What am I doing? I was doing something, to the continuing coverage of the tragedy on the East Coast. I was creating order in... chaos.
