Every fall, New England rolls out a foliage carpet dressed in blazing oranges and reds, yellows and purples. It's the perfect time to visit the region. Early October is prime leaf-peeping time for the northern states, while the southern half's season stretches into late October.
If we indeed believe in diversity, reverence for life, and sustainability, no beings are more deserving of our compassion than members of our own species who have no habitat to call home.
When Peyton Saltmarsh stood at the starting line of the Smuttynose Half Marathon last weekend, he had two things on his mind: wolves and 8-minute mile...
Though often remote, the Appalachian Trail was a route like any other. Ordinary roads ran near it and intersected it as it wound its way around towns, over rivers and across forested valleys. What was to stop me from tracking the trail by . . . car?
Back in late June, when I wrote Why Bernie Sanders Will Become the Democratic Nominee and Defeat Any Republican in 2016, Hillary Clinton had a commanding lead over Bernie Sanders. According to the Huffpost Pollster interactive chart, Clinton's support within the Democratic Party was at 58.3% to only 15.6% for Bernie Sanders. Fast forward a couple of months and Bernie Sanders is now only 7 points from Clinton.
In campaign 2016, some things have changed, many have not. Hillary has served as a U.S. Senator and the U.S. Secretary of State, helping thousands, maybe millions, of people to create, reconstruct, and resurrect their lives. And yet people keep asking, who is this woman?
I think socialism is becoming popular sooner than I expected. With technology inexorably solving scarcity as it eliminates good-paying jobs, a push for a more socialist approach has seemed to me to be inevitable. But it's happening faster than I thought

The repeated conservative attacks on Donald Trump have failed, because they are off the mark. Candidates like Rick Perry, Rand Paul, and Bobby Jindal did not have the positive image and standing to attack, and they came across as desperate and petulant bottom-feeders.
Though not quite "offbeat" or unsung, many attractions here are in private hands, and have been for generations - a rarity in the increasingly corporate world of tourism.
Summer is winding down, which means only one thing. Fall Foliage season is close at hand. One of my favorite places to revel in the fiery colors of autumn is central New Hampshire's Lake Region: Lake Winnipesaukee (favored by Mitt Romney) and the relatively tranquil Squam Lake.
The made-up email 'scandal' has given the media plenty to talk about and Hillary definitely made mistakes handling it. Even her most ardent supporters wish she had laid out the entire issue clearly from the start.
What are the odds that three world-renowned comedians -- Adam Sandler, Seth Meyers and Sarah Silverman -- were born and raised in the same New England town? And what does it say about said town, anyway?
2016 looks like the race polling was made for. Better survey methods and technology has made gathering data easier than ever, and week after week new sets are published that provide insight into the erratic race that is still very much in its pre-primary stages.
The Appalachian Trail is back in the news these days. Some of us have indelible memories of our experiences on the trail. Here's my tale of tracing the entire length of it, years back, in, uh, a rented Geo Prizm.
