Guns, Guns and Guns

It's only human nature to want to take action after such a harrowing traumatic event. To do something. Anything, to protect our kids. And make sure that Newtown never ever happens again. Here. There. Anywhere.

Right-to-Work in Michigan: 24 down, 26 to go

Back in the late 1970s, when the now-legendary Lee Iacocca took the reins at Chrysler, he was reputed to have told the union bosses, "Look, boys, I've got a shotgun to your head. I've got thousands of jobs at seventeen bucks an hour. I've got no jobs at twenty."

I went downstairs to check my e-mail, and there it was – he most solemn letter I've ever read, from a distraught friend who knew no other way to get the news out to all of us moms in her stay-at-home mom's group than to send out an e-mail. I ...

We must keep tragedies in perspective

When tragic deaths occur under intense media scrutiny, there is often a reflexive grasp at greater meaning. But our pent-up desire to address serious, overarching problems, sometimes leads to a flood of misdirected emotion and protest.
