Sunday Roundup

This week began with all sorts of madness. College hoops' March Madness began on Thursday, and if I had a bracket it would no doubt already be busted. Weather madness broke out on Friday, the first day of spring, with a snowstorm on the East Coast. More serious meteorological madness descended as Senator Mitch McConnell launched a national effort to thwart new EPA regulations on coal-fired carbon emissions. This comes as new data showed that the rate of melting on Antarctica's East Ice could lead to a world sea-level rise of at least 11 feet and that -- spring snowstorms aside -- 2014 was the warmest year on record. On Friday, HuffPost's Sam Stein interviewed President Obama, who, when asked about managing stress, said he takes "the long view." It's a perspective we'll need -- combined with short-term political urgency -- if we're going to tackle climate change. To do otherwise is true madness.

Friday Talking Points -- Don't Panic

Chris Weigant

That headline, of course, quotes the cover to the fictional Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy: "Don't Panic." This week, it seems like timely advice, as the news media and American politicians go into full-blown panic mode over one death and two illnesses within the United States.

Iraq: Make Way for the Parade of Prophets

What's the Definition of a Crazy Question?

John V. Santore

Within the context of illogic and paranoia that has at times defined Barack Obama's opponents, it is tempting to write off those who make the most strident claims against him. But we shouldn't be afraid to ask big, fundamental questions about the conduct of the administration and its officials.

If James O'Keefe is serious about his "ratf**king" efforts (as Nixon's Don Segretti called it), he'll do well to remember that it doesn't take much more effort to register a domain name anonymously.
