What would happen if we applied that same type of curiosity -- that innovative laboratory mindset -- to our current healthcare system. Could we make a dent in the $2.8 trillion dollar health care bill we're expected this year?
From Fred Phelps to John Piper, Christians who speak hatred on behalf of God outdo Jesus, who humbly professed ignorance of the reason for disasters.
I was born and bred in Oklahoma. I make my living as an Oklahoma criminal defense attorney. Tornadoes have been a part of my entire life. Hell, my high school mascot was a "red tornado."
You are not safe. Not at work. Not at home in your bed. The biggest threat is not terrorism. It's corporate negligence leading to a blast or collapse or release of toxic chemicals.
Fear is not something we can turn off, something we can consciously control.
It is not only pointless but can actually be counter-productive to wildly speculate on who is responsible for the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon. Domestic, foreign, religious, secular, or just purely insane: we really have no idea why this attack happened right now.
You can sell damn near anything online these days... or at least you can try. According to police, Misty VanHorn of Sallisaw, Okla. tried (unsuccessfully) to sell her kids on Facebook.
"We the People" create the institutions that serve us. It's easy to forget that we -- individual citizens -- are the ones responsible for our children's education.
Jeremy Lin returned to the scene of the crime last night. The sports world was gripped with Linsanity last season thanks to his unlikely story. But now he's with Houston and in last night's homecoming he scored 22 points.

Our goal is an ambitious one -- to end the killing of healthy or treatable dogs and cats in animal shelters. We don't pretend this is easy, but we are always mindful that animals like Oliver need our help.
