Environmental protection in the age of Trump

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) has been called the Magna Carta of our nation's environmental laws. Passed in 1969, Congress designed NEPA to provide for environmentally informed decision-making and public outreach on the part of federal agencies. NEPA requires that all the consequences and potential environmental problems of an agency's actions must be carefully considered before an agency acts.

‘Roseanne’ is a liberal trojan horse

Hey, "Roseanne" fans in Tulsa, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Oklahoma City and Indianapolis: don't get too comfy with Roseanne-the-Trump-Voter... it looks like the writers are going to make her character into a new version of Archie Bunker, a likable character with horrible, hateful opinions designed to turn you against non-liberal political ideas.

Status quo in VA culture shouldn’t put bureaucracy ahead of vets

There is no group of Americans I hold in higher regard than our nation's veterans. During my time in Congress - as a member of both the House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees and as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies - I have made improving the quality of life for our nearly 20 million veterans a top priority. I have worked with a deep bench of colleagues who hold the same commitment. Any person or thing detracting from this shared priority does a disservice to our nation's veterans.

David Hogg, child media star

Caught in the whirlwind of adoring television interviews, newspaper profiles, rally speeches and teenage groupies, David Hogg has not had time to ruminate on one of the great truths of our media-driven age: The long arc of history doesn't bend toward justice.

Small change by Trump could have huge impact

Last Monday, the U.S. Commerce Dept. announced something that sounds like a perfectly reasonable thing to do: It will include a question about citizenship on the 2020 Census.

MLK’s legacy: The next 50 years

Decades ago, when I worked in a grocery store, I would frequently have to phone my boss and ask whether to cash a check for a stranger. The questioning would inevitably include, "Is he black?"

Your Easter assignment: Study to show thyself approved

The dangers of John Bolton to the United States
