People who want to lead their country, in all likelihood, love their country. I wouldn't want to lead something I don't love. That's why I never ran for president of soccer or humidity or the Kardashians.

'Ida' and False Controversy

I would like to make a distinction between two terms -- terms that are often used interchangeably, but in actuality, while connected in some ways, stand as unique and separate from one another. The terms are "patriot" and "nationalist."

Chris Ofili: Night and Day

Francis Levy | Posted 03.30.2015 | Arts
Francis Levy

Ofili partakes of a tradition of transgressive Christianity that goes back to Dostoevsky's The Grand Inquisitor, to Graham Greene's fugitive priest in The Power and the Glory and to the damnation that infects the saintly fallen creatures in Pasolini's films.

Norm Stamper | Posted 03.06.2014 | Politics
Norm Stamper

New York's new mayor made clear from the beginning that he would put an end to NYPD's aggressive "stop and frisk" policies. So, what does he do? He turns around and appoints a police commissioner who, under Rudy Giuliani, ushered in that very same stop and frisk mentality.

Every time anonymous aides pile on the wife of a candidate (It's almost always the wife, after all when was the last time we read an unflattering profile of Todd Palin?) there's an underlying message there: she needs to be put in her place.

Any work of art, film, or music that provokes deeper awareness of our differences and similarities, can make a dent in the usual lack of dialogue.

The NYPD's Hispanic Politics
