"I was paying $14 a month for a very nice looking wallet cards that made it look like I had insurance," said Doris Duperette of Springfield, Alabama. "It had my name on it, all kinds of tiny printed words and numbers. And it fit right in my purse! What more did I need?"
The real concern is not, however, the Chemical Weapons Convention, a treaty that most Americans like.

Fights over judicial nominations are hardy perennials. The politics around them can become dispiriting. So it is important to remember that beneath the political warfare, there are often unbelievably talented human beings, without any ideological agenda.
There has been a huge hoopla over comments made by Judge Richard Posner during a HuffPost Live interview with Mike Sacks, and in various other media outlets, that he likely made the wrong decision upholding Indiana's Voter ID law in Crawford v. Marion County.
