Who Wins the 2016 Game?

Obama Haters’ Heads Detonate over ‘DenaliGate’

What could be more entertaining, on a hot summer day, than revisiting the American idiocracy, which is obsessed at the moment with the president's renaming of a mountain?

School Days, School Days

Labor Day: 12 Random Thoughts

Local schools started in early August, I haven't checked in on the MDA Telethon since Jerry Lewis was ousted as host and my family has no particular Labor Day traditions; but I do find myself pondering the holiday that salutes the accomplishments of America's workers.

Shining examples of greatness, forged in the fire of adversity

About every month, another parenting book arrives at Barnes & Noble. I bought the most recent arrival and skimmed it quickly - entitled "How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success," by Julie Lythcott-Haims.

If Yesterday's News Came Today

One of my favorite movies is "Jurassic Park." Actually, that's not true. One of my 6-year-old nephew's favorite movies is "Jurassic Park," which means we watch it on a loop.

Donald Trump and the River of Slime

All I really need to know about Donald Trump I learned from "Ghostbusters II." An undercurrent of hate and fear-a river of slime, if you will-is fueling his march toward the Republican nomination.

Brightsides to the Perpetual Campaign

It's easy to tell the end of summer the year before a presidential election is nigh, because that bothersome quadrennial buzzing noise is back. And no, we're not talking about candidates riding the Tilt-A-Whirl at the Iowa State Fair after eating pork on a stick.

Blame the Fed for Stock Market Crash

Following Monday's historic stock market downturn, many politicians and so-called economic experts rushed to the microphones to explain why the market crashed and to propose "solutions" to our economic woes.

Will Joe Biden 'Feel the Tingle?'

The latest Joe Biden speculation basically falls into two categories: He's leaning toward a presidential bid (unless he isn't), and he's a potentially formidable candidate (unless he isn't). Truth is, nobody really knows. And that includes Joe, who at most has another month - until the run-up to the first Democratic debate on Oct. 13 - to make up his mind.
