I have no quibble with others' religious beliefs. Those who choose to accept Eben Alexander's interpretation of his experiences are welcome to do so, as far as I'm concerned. There is nothing scientific about Alexander's claims or his"proof."
Few photographs have commanded my full attention. Among them are those that recall our nation's most trying moments, while others recount the world's most atrocious crimes.
Whenever we equate the radical fringe, whether they be Muslim extremists or Christian fundamentalists, with the majority of a particular religion, we empower the fanatics.
Of all the lying nonsense that came out of last week's Republican convention, the biggest was that this country is worse off now than it was when President Obama took office. Even more discouraging is the fact that for three days, Democrats went along with that big lie!

Discrimination and prejudice is quite possible in the U.S. and it seems ever apparent in all things arguably related to Fethullah Gulen. America should be welcoming a Muslim scholar promoting secular education, science, tolerance and nonviolence -- not castigating him.
Eliot & Mary debate how a bad bet in London -- shades of AIG! -- produced "told you sos" from those wanting a strong Volcker Rule. Is Regulation still evil? Then: the two debate opening partisan attacks on Bain and Debt.
There is no connection between the theme of submission/dominance and women's "possible" discomfort with economic successes and power.
As Passover 2012 ends, let's finally break the bonds, and liberate ourselves from Top Rabbis lists. America has enough idols. Let's smash this one (the list, not the rabbis).
