Americans are not much aware of the destruction our wars cause -- and if we don't know or feel that, why should we be more likely to restrain the politicians and generals when the next war looms? War without consequences is like a freebie. Why not try another?
Recent news stories have announced as part of your ability to gain employment with some companies, perspective employers are demanding your Facebook password -- and now everyone thinks it's a big deal.
The flight of advertisers from Limbaugh will be defended by many as the market mechanism through which the public's views are expressed. To me, it's just cowardice.
Since the middle of January I have been calling this race for Santorum. I feel like a guy out in the wilderness wearing sackcloth eating grasshoppers...
"I wrote a song about my high school girlfriend who broke my heart and have been milking it ever since. The irony of it is, it's the very first song I ever wrote and it's the song that's pinned on my back, kind of like 'kick me.'"
Surely, there are some moderate moneymen who miss the days of Nelson Rockefeller and Edward Brooke, who recall a time when the GOP cherished common sense and revered rationality.
As history closes the chapter on Iraq, Americans from all corners of the country want to respect all those who served there, remember those who died, and respond to the challenges they're now facing at home from record unemployment to troubling suicide rates. It's time for all of us, from the president to the Pentagon to mayors and ordinary citizens nationwide, to work together to channel our collective goodwill and support and momentum to deliver critical resources to the veterans' community.

It looks as if those ancient Mayans were pretty sharp cookies after all. They figured out that this year was going to be a doozy.
In the days ahead, despite the anger, one question is: Will the Occupy DC movement be able to remain non-violent as it has?
On this day we celebrate Adrienne's life, her accomplishments and the legacy she's left behind. It is in her honor that I started the Adrienne Shelly Foundation with a singular mission: to support women filmmakers.
Occupy Wall Street, so long as the direct action of street demonstrations prevails and continues, is at this moment growing into something that none of us can see at this time. It's all about the future.
"It's not a 'women's' movement, it's a human rights movement we are embarking on. I think in some regards men are more enraged -- fathers of daughters are concerned about their future."
Senator Jon Kyl (R. AZ) advanced the art of GOP prevarication last April when he claimed that Planned Parenthood spends 90% of its budget on abortions. The grossness of the falsehood -- the correct figure is 3%, not 90 -- was par for the course.
