Elizabeth G. Taylor | October 1, 2016 | Politics
Comprehensive, quality health care must include all family planning services. And all people, not just the privileged, should have their health rights respected. At the moment, and for far too many moments in our country's history, women - particularly low-income and women of color -- have not been able to...

Dump Chump Trump

William Astore | October 1, 2016 | Politics
What kind of a presidential candidate tweets in the middle of the night about alleged sex tapes involving a former Miss Universe winner?  Indeed, what kind of a man does this? Donald Trump is a chump.  I'd call him a chimp, except it would be an insult to chimpanzees...

Karl A. Pillemer, Ph.D. | October 1, 2016 | Fifty
'You don't just marry a person; you marry his or her family.' In my surveys of over 700 long-married older people, this statement was seen as a fundamental truth.

What Ron Howard's New Beatles Documentary Does Best

Candy Leonard | October 1, 2016 | Fifty
Beatlemania was an important cultural phenomenon that changed the course of postwar history. Millions of baby boomers across a 15-year age range, across the globe, were smitten by four charismatic lads who, through their music, attitude, wit, and intelligence, excited us, dazzled us.

The (Possible) Triumph Of Gullibility And Stupidity

Joe Seldner | October 1, 2016 | Fifty
Trump promises to rebuild America's inner cities, which he claims are less safe than the streets of Afghanistan. He promises to create millions of jobs. He promises, yes, to make American great again. Does anyone believe him? Tens of millions do.

The Great American Spin Machine

Eli Zaretsky | October 1, 2016 | Politics
It is an awesome experience to watch the great American spin machine at work. It is not so much that its message-- "vote for Hillary; Trump is deeply flawed"-- is incorrect, although it is scarcely presented in a manner that is precise,...

Iran and Daesh are JASTA's only beneficiaries

Faisal J. Abbas | October 1, 2016 | World
"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter," the great Winston Churchill once said. This statement has been proven yet again by the US Congress acting on behalf of the American people and overriding President Obama's veto of JASTA.

Is America's Problem it Doesn't Go to War Enough?

Doug Bandow | October 1, 2016 | World
A couple of Rand Corporation scholars have discovered America's problem vis-à-vis Russia: Washington isn't willing to use its military as much. This has given Moscow an apparently unfair advantage in challenging America. Maybe Washington should reconsider its policy, they suggest. Vladimir Putin appears to be working overtime to thwart U.S....

The Trump Reality Show

Joe Peyronnin | October 1, 2016 | Politics
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been a disgrace to his party and an embarrassment to the nation. He has consistently demonstrated that he does not have the temperament, judgment, background or humility to lead our country.

Is Donald Trump Afraid of Being President?

William Bradley | October 1, 2016 | Media
Is Donald Trump afraid of being president? It would certainly explain his inexplicable behavior in the post-midnight, pre-dawn hours of Friday morning. Let me roll out my old Berkeley psych minor (that's a little joke) in noting that Trump is again sabotaging himself in a period in which a Trump...

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Celebrates 50 Years With New Album, First-Ever IBMA Performance

Lisa Snedeker | October 1, 2016 | Entertainment
I have always found it a bit ironic that one of the most iconic American bands that plays bluegrass has its roots, not in the verdant hills of Appalachia, but in the shifting sands of sunny Southern California. Note that I said "band...
