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...
Some old habits never die.
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...
'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.
Eight Days a Week: The Touring Years,
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.
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.

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,...
"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.
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....
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? 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...

Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week,
Beat By a Girl,
Trump backed his personal Titanic up again and again, and tried to just ram through the iceberg, over and over. He was even up early this morning, providing yet another day's legs for this story.
This week I had the great pleasure to attend SUSTYBIZ16, a three-day event organized by the American Sustainable Business Council and held in Washington DC. Having been in the sustainable business world for over ten years, I knew that...
