Now it's the Dems that are Getting Nasty

Bibles in the Classroom?

By the time you read this, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, a Republican, may have already signed the bill making the Bible "the state book" and triggered a string of events with Constitutional consequences.

The Rising Odds of Republican Chaos

50 Years Later, We've Learned Nothing From Vietnam

Last week Defense Secretary Ashton Carter laid a wreath at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington in commemoration of the "50th anniversary" of that war. The date is confusing, as the war started earlier and ended far later than 1966. But the Vietnam War at 50 commemoration presents a good opportunity to reflect on the war and whether we have learned anything from it.

Baseball's New Gimmicks Won't Win Over Younger Viewers

The new baseball season has its usual quotient of obnoxious on-field innovations, such as the time clock that will now govern visits by managers and coaches to the pitcher's mound. Like most fiddling with our Great American Pastime, the motivating force is the television audience, specifically younger viewers who are not embracing the sport.
