Would you go on 'The Briefcase'?

"The Hunger Games" was supposed to be fiction, but maybe it was prophetic. Now comes "The Briefcase," CBS's new reality show that pits desperate middle-class families against each other for financial survival.

Way back in 1954, Army lawyer Joseph Welch famously rebuked right-wing demagogue Joe McCarthy: "Have you no sense of decency, sir?" One can only imagine what Welch would say today about the vile Internet trolls who can't curb their hatred even when somebody dies.

Venezuela, Pakistan, and China have also benefited from Ex-Im Bank loans.

Which means the youngest of the Baby Boomers turned 50 last year, and the oldest will turn 70 next year, which is just so wrong. We Boomers are the architects of the youth culture.
