Attacking saloons with a hatchet while spouting Biblical-sounding verses, Pulp Fiction -style, Carry Nation helped get America into rehab 100 years ago today. (It didn't work)

I can tell you all this for sure- whatever ridiculous propaganda we were fed in then Czechoslovakia, which was mandated by Soviet Union- pales next to the lies being told and repeated by trump and his ilk. I am not kidding… trump truly trumps the communists. And that’s not easy

Racists have received a giant green light to let out their hate over the past few years. They need to be stuffed back in the box they were hiding in for so long. I'm glad the kid is strong enough to handle the abuse at such a young age, but he shouldn't have to be.

A valid question. I tried to get hold of the coaches w/o success, but rather than single out a team that didn’t respond, the truth is Divyne (and black players on my sons’ teams too) have endured this from other teams - often. This was the most blatant + ended in brawl/action.

As of Thursday, DOD will be run by a former senior Boeing executive. EPA is run by a former coal lobbyist. HHS is run by a former pharmaceutical lobbyist. And Interior will be run by a former oil-industry lobbyist. Welcome to 2019.

Hi! I knew you’d come along. I’ve addressed this before. Kids doing nuclear drills never had to actually see their fears come true in their nation. Kids are actually shot and killed in schools in America today. There’s a difference.

The final word of 2018? Small actions by many people can make big change and the goodness of people will win.

Thanks for reading and asking... there are connections between school shootings and suicides. Not all, but many:

Great story. Suspenseful as fiction is suspenseful, but in the best journalism tradition, tells a true story, while asking important question: How much does our cherished melting-pot tradition depend on individuals and circumstances. .

He did it. A third term. Sort of. A U.S. president is more than an executive. A president is a moral leader, a cheerleader for our nation and champion of so much that is good in America. Good thing someone will still do that job...

"It is a frustration of mine, though not a surprise, that A League of Their Own isn’t considered a slam-dunk top-10 all-time sports film. It is the best-earning baseball movie in history, and it holds up as well today as it did in the early ’90s."
