The journalistic cowardice of peppy, preening, self-absorbed muppets is not a sign of a coming apocalypse. It is, however, a symptom of national decline. If you can't face the future with open eyes, you're probably afraid of where you're going.
If you happen to pick up a copy of the Kansas legal code for the construction and administration of nursing homes -- which, admittedly, you probably w...
Don't get me wrong. I have no beef with public servants, and I'm not looking for a referendum on bureaucrats. But, I do think we expect too much from government and too little from ourselves.
Improvements in the fight for gay rights! And Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married! No better way to sum up those topics than with Frozen's "Let It Go"! Because if Disney doesn't make you happy, nothing will.
I have cancer, which is not that funny. At all. Or, is it? Honesty can be funny when it's hard hitting, and hard hitting can feel necessary to get out...
Why is it that some guys seem to have it and some guys don't? One guy in a t-shirt and jeans could seem to be dressed better (though more casual) than a guy in a suit and tie.
The remedies to their common problem should be the same for both The Post and FiveThirtyEight. Both must correct the record and be forceful when they do. This means publishing a correction connected to the original piece.

My wife and I hate cattle drives. Cattle drives are where large groups of people all do the same thing at the same time. First Holy Communion is an ...
The powerful, super-wealthy people at the top of the economic food chain have noticed all this populist stirring. Boy, have they noticed. In spite of all their power and wealth, they are offended that anyone is suggesting that the system should be tinkered with. They're speaking out -- in truly silly ways -- and putting their money where their mouths are.
Congrats to Vladimir Putin! His voter tampering has succeeded! (It's easy to vote the "right" way when you've got a gun pointed at your head). Just another day of democracy-in-action for good ol' Vlad.
The show is, in every way, fashioned from the very cloth Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have spent their careers assiduously shredding.
You can say, and even believe, that the U.S. has the best health care system in the world if, as I did for many years, you associate only with other folks who share the same world view as you do and if you watch, read and listen to the media that reinforce your preconceived notions.
SB 1062 in Arizona was vetoed by Governor Jan Brewer! But not everyone is so happy about it. Amidst the hatred, there was actually more entertaining hatred found on Twitter.
If passed, the ban on same-sex marriages could have devastating consequences on upwards of 86 percent of current legal unions, and up to 60 percent of Jewish newlyweds.
This year the top movies reflect the hopes, fears, and obsessions of their audiences, and so they offer us a chance to reflect on what these films can teach us.
