I am married to a man and certainly would not have wanted someone to officiate who disapproved. It’s not that hard to mutually respect peoples different beliefs. Let’s be pragmatic. — You can’t make state officials like me perform same-sex marriages

There is another way of looking at it, not to defend Pruitt about whom I know nothing. I refuse to accept speaking engagements if they do pay at least business class airfare. I am too old to endure economy seats. Why should business or intellectual leaders have to give that up?

A positive step back toward the rule of law and away from the police state of perpetual war and the Patriot Act. A top al-Qaeda operative is about to be sentenced for killing U.S. troops 15 years ago in Afghanistan

Dear Boomers: Maybe if you had passed on a sense of membership in society, with meaning, ideals, and rules beyond self-interest, millennial attempts to recreate these for themselves wouldn't be so third rate.

We should capitalize on periods of low unemployment and economic expansion by reducing our deficits, not increasing them as Congress and the president are planning. Trillion dollar shortfalls are hamstringing critical government function and will eventually lead to disaster.

Imagine a spectrum, with normal politics at one end and then partisanship, polarization, and finally delegitimization at the other. Calling Democrats in Congress treasonous crosses over into delegitimization and makes needed compromise and governing difficult if not impossible.
