By now, there is no question that representational painting rooted in the classical idea of skill is again the heart of a living culture. It may not have access to all the apparatus of institutional and financial reward the broader art world has to offer, but it has caught fire...

OpenSecrets Blog | September 27, 2016 | Politics
Four years after it began requiring TV stations to upload their records of political ad sales to a central government website, the Federal Communications Commission maintains a recordkeeping system that makes finding out who an ad's sponsor is feel like a treasure hunt.

Consulting to the Rich

Craig K. Comstock | September 27, 2016 | Politics
Imagine that, for an attractive fee, you have been engaged as a consultant to the rich. They have a problem, or at least had a problem starting with President FDR. Our society celebrates formal equality and democracy (at least to the extent of holding regular elections), but the society is, in fact, grossly unequal in terms of wealth, and is becoming more so. How to protect and grow that wealth in a system where the mass of less affluent people vote (or at least could)? What are your recommendations?

No, Canada Won't Get Me If Trump Wins

Wayne Anderson | September 27, 2016 | Politics
In them I see America's promise and I would never abandon them or the fight for their future in the land of the free and the home of the brave. I truly hope that America will make the right decision and elect Hillary Clinton our next president but if America falls prey to Trump's fear mongering and racist hatred, then I will stand as I always have and my voice will only grow stronger.

Is The Clinton Foundation A Front?

Andy Schupak | September 27, 2016 | Politics
Because Donald Trump has continually accused the Clintons of turning the Clinton Foundation into a crime organization, I decided to investigate his charge. What I discovered was that Bill Clinton has built one of the most extraordinary non-governmental organizations in the world.

Hillary's Biggest Challenge: Bringing Back Decent Jobs

Jane White | September 27, 2016 | Politics
One of the biggest ironies about Donald Trump's Presidential campaign is his pledge to bring back jobs that have been outsourced to other countries--the major driver behind his support from blue-collar workers.

It's Come to This: Why We Must Police the Police

David Michael Conner | September 27, 2016 | Politics
Last Friday, a couple of friends and I saw something unusual: A police officer pulled over a car in downtown Washington, D.C. as it turned a busy corner. I've been in this city for many years, and the only time I can recall seeing a car pulled over for a traffic violation was when someone was talking on a cell phone and a police officer ordered him to hang up with a megaphone; when that failed, she pulled him over and wrote a ticket.

Pennsylvania Artist Tackles Heroin Epidemic, Despite Police Intervention

Katherine Fritz | September 27, 2016 | Politics
Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling has begun listing overdose deaths as homicides, rather than accidental. While perhaps the difference may seem inconsequential -- a death by any other name is still a death -- ruling these deaths as homicides expands the likelihood that dealers will be arrested and charges will be filed.

With the United States' voter registration rate among the lowest in the developed world, there's no doubt we need a National Voter Registration Day. But, if our country wants to work towards a goal of getting more Americans to vote, we also need a Voting Restoration Day.
