I don't know if I'll ever be completely free of the impulse to default to feelings of self-pity and irritability when I overload myself, but for me that's no longer the point.

One of the more memorable May Days in history went unreported to those of us who were defending the U.S. in Vietnam in May of 1971. That's more than a little ironic, especially for guys like me who served as "combat correspondents" and whose military job it was to report on what was going on with the troops and the war and all the rest.

Arts and culture are a link, sometimes even a lifeline, between countries, as they remind us of our humanity and instill respect of other cultures. And, all things considered, they do. Russian audiences experience American orchestras and Americans experience Russian ballet. But not all is well, however, at least temporarily.

While abolitionists cheered the news that Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber had declared a moratorium on executions last week, the public reacted with surprise. Oregon has the death penalty?

Obama Allowing Oil Drilling Is Cynical Politics

Philip Radford | Posted 05.25.2011 | Green

President Obama trotted Interior Secretary Salazar out to do his dirty work -- announcing the President's decision to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. This is pure politics of the most cynical kind.

Just four weeks until the midterm elections and I'm starting to feel that maybe, just maybe, Democrats will prevent an All Souls Day Massacre. And if the Dems escape death's door, they had better not let this nonsense happen again.
