Harper Doth Protest Too Much

Daniel D. Veniez | May 4, 2012 | Canada
Stephen Harper's response was too quick, too defensive, too abrasive, and too angry to be credible. This was not a reflexive response, either. It was a strategic one, clearly designed to signal to Conservative staff and consultants that everything will be fine and they will ride this out so long as people stay with the script and don't talk.

Will Obama Agree to Strike Iran?

David Frum | May 4, 2012 | Canada Politics
Will Barack Obama strike Iran to stop its nuclear program? The president is claiming that the "only way" -- not the cheapest way, nor the fastest way, but literally the "only" way -- to reach a permanent solution is for Iran to abjure weapons "themselves." Which suggests that the answer to the question at the top of the column is "no."

Girls Under Pressure: A Story of Sex't Up Kids and "Sesame Street-Walkers"

Lilian Nattel | May 4, 2012 | Canada Living
Teen girls were mortified when photos of themselves in bra and panties or topless were sent all around the classroom. They just were doing what they'd been taught to do by TV, YouTube, magazines, their friends: "be cute," which has become code for "be sexy," which means show your stuff. And then they'd been shamed for it.

One Is Enough: Why We Chose to Not Give Our Son a Sibling

Joshua Ostroff | May 4, 2012 | Canada Living
Remember that Seinfeld episode where George Constanza learns to leave on a high note? That's what my wife and I have decided to do as parents. This astounds many people -- who often judgmentally tell us it's unfair to our son to deny him a sibling -- despite the increasing numbers of single-child families.

A Challenge to Rush: Prove Your Ratings

Cenk Uygur | May 4, 2012 | Media
How many listeners does Rush Limbaugh have? Well, in the press there are only two numbers you'll ever see -- 20 million or 15 million. I've got news for you -- those numbers are a total fabrication.

The GOP Rush to Deny Coverage of Birth Control

Carolyn Maloney | May 4, 2012 | Women
I would like to suggest to our Republican friends that they drop the pretense that the subject is religious freedom. It is not. Birth control is directly and undeniably related to women's health.

I Would Boycott Limbaugh, If I Could

Paul Ruth | May 4, 2012 | Politics
It would be decent to assume in a free market that if a figure can exist, it will. In this particular case, Rush Limbaugh may take the podium accepting this award of economic reality. It is true, like many personalities, he says things to cause a reaction and to put...

Paddy Duffy | May 4, 2012 | UK Entertainment
It's been a while now since The Brit Awards, and it sort of feels even longer than it was because the only thing memorable thing about the show was how dull it was. Coldplay opened, which is like splashing anaesthetic on your face.

Le vote latino - et l'exagération de son importance

Rafael Jacob | May 4, 2012 | Canada Quebec
Dans son plus récent numéro, le magazine Time titre : «Pourquoi les électeurs latinos vont déterminer l'issue de l'élection de 2012». Le problème central de cette idée n'est pas uniquement qu'elle n'a rien d'original - elle est répétée dans plusieurs cercles médiatiques depuis des années - mais plutôt qu'elle est essentiellement fausse.
