I want to focus on one troubling truism that research has unfortunately made quasi-axiomatic: It's not the deployments -- their intensity, their frequency, or their number -- that contribute to the epidemic of military suicide.
In America, as we move into the parades of Columbus Day and Veterans' Day (and of course the sales!) we tend to look down on looking within at the mistakes we have made, lived through, voted for, and those that came before us.
Criticize Big Tech all you want. These companies certainly aren't above reproach. It just helps if you don't let your ideology overlook important little things like facts.
By any reasonable standard of what constitutes acceptable public discourse, Donald Trump's presidential campaign should have ended on Wednesday at about 10:50 p.m. That's when he set his extravagantly sprayed hair on fire by indulging in some truly dangerous myths about vaccines.
In a New York Times op-ed, Princeton University History Professor Sean Wilentz disputed claims that United States Constitution was a pro-slavery document.
Support of Israel used to be a bipartisan cause and while it remains true that Democrats and Republicans still heavily support Israel, some rifts have developed. The conflict has widened as every Republican in the House of Representatives, except one, voted against the Iran deal.

The news business has devolved into just another branch of the entertainment business. Many are well aware of this. Few, though, appreciate the degree to which even the elite media -- e.g., The New York Times -- contribute to the phenomenon.
On an even broader scale, looking at labels of sexuality is a great way to become increasingly aware of the countless other labels and stereotypes that surround us. It's important to constantly be conscious of the words we are using to identify others, and to ensure we are not using them in ways that negatively limit or categorize them.
Presented as containing some damning revelations, upon closer examination the emails simply produced more yawns. They contained nothing proving any kind of wrongdoing on the part of Clinton.
