The Historic Preservation Act: 50 Fun Years

A disturbing number of the rustic 19th-century farmhouses, quaint dry goods emporiums and fascinatingly grimy automotive garages I remember from childhood have, over the years, burned down or met with a wrecking ball.

Trump Still Thinks He Won the Debate

An estimated 84,000,000 Americans tuned into the 1st Presidential Debate at New York's Hofstra University last week, but Donald Trump did not seem to be among them. Mentally he had checked out, maybe to seek admission to Dr. Snuffleupagus's clinic to score some surplus Claritin.

You Can’t Make Trump What He Isn’t

Instead of trying to turn Donald Trump into Mitt Romney, I suggest the campaign junta stop trying to construct a Debatetron 5000 and instead get Trump to utilize the assets that won him the nomination: Humor, the ability to connect with an audience and a willingness to say what programmed politicians won't.

After Peres, Is Peace Possible in the Middle East?

The death of former Israeli president and prime minister Shimon Peres last week marks the last of the Zionist "old guard" who successfully fought for a UN mandate to establish the state of Israel in what was formerly British Palestine.

As a syndicated newspaper columnist, a Clinton supporter, and one who teaches journalism to high school students, I was taken aback by reaction to – and pigeonholing of – my criticism of moderator Lester Holt in the first presidential debate.

Debunking the newspapers are dying idea

Imagine waking up in a world without newspapers. "Ha!" You say, "I haven't gotten a newspaper in years." But I'm not talking about just the paper delivered by carriers or the postal service. I'm talking about the news online, the links on social media, the email newsletter, the source cited in the television broadcast and the push notification on your phone. The word newspaper no longer reflects the media industry encompassed by the word.

Power of the press is in being the Way to Know for news consumers

The power of the press rests in the ability of journalists to hold government accountable, to mobilize public opinion on matters that are important to individuals, communities or the nation, and to provide necessary information of value.

As a Journalist, Holt Stumbled Badly

Before taking his seat at Monday night's presidential debate, Lester Holt confided to the audience in the hall that his knees were shaking. Ninety minutes later, shaky would be an overly kind way to describe Holt's performance as moderator.
