Right, Left and Today’s Political Parties

Over the last several months, we've heard much about partisan politics. Regardless of what each of us believe or how we vote, it should be obvious that party is running above principle more so than at any other time in modern history.

The Governors Who Cried Quarantine

In 2005, Hurricane Ivan was a Category 5 storm headed for New Orleans. "Mayor Ray Nagin declared a state of emergency and strongly recommended that residents evacuate immediately," reported CNN.com at the time. Roughly half-600,000-residents left; the majority stayed. The storm passed. New Orleans was unscathed.

Boehner suing Obama: Whatever Happened to that Stunt?

Hey, remember the House GOP's big summer announcement that it intended to sue President Obama for his purportedly tyrannical behavior? Whatever happened to that, anyway? Did John Boehner file the suit or not?

The Funny Side of Ebola

Gather round kiddies, because it's time for Uncle Will to regale you with the funny side of Ebola. Oh, yeah, there is one. Just need a trained professional to find it. Take the widespread fear and paranoia making people crazier than the trajectory of an arrow with a gelatin shaft. Okay. Not entirely side splitting. Well, how about the prospect of a global epidemic on the scale of two zombie apocalypses? No, you're right. Still less humorous than polio. Which never was a laugh riot.

Partisanship, For Lack of a Better Word, is Good

Partisanship, for lack of a better word, is good. You won't find a more unexamined assumption in America today than a sneering contempt for partisanship. Yet partisanship persists, an evolutionary fact of life in our democracy because it is an ineffable expression of the American experiment. Partisanship isn't just what we do instead of shooting each other but how we express our moral values.

Canada's Terrorism Turning Point

The live TV coverage on CBCNN brought back memories of another assassination -- the assassination of JFK. A funeral procession punctuated by drumbeats and bagpipes. Only this time, a country's grief focused on Corporal Nathan Cirillo. Only this time, the haunting image of a child that'll be reproduced forever was Carrillo's 5-year-old son Marcus, bravely walking in the parade, his life changed forever.

GOP’s Biggest Problem? Multiculturalism

The primary reason for Barack Obama's second-term victory, and the most pressing issue for the impending midterms, is not economics, foreign policy, or even immigration reform. Instead, it is something we generally hear little about: multiculturalism.

Price Controls Reward Special Interests And Slow Innovation

Remarkable new wonder drugs have caused a new confrontation over pricing wars between manufacturers and health plans, now reaching a fever pitch over hepatitis C treatments from Gilead. Unfortunately, rather than the industry players settling the issue through negotiation, health plans are turning to Congress to step in and arbitrarily limit prices, which could undermine the investment that is critical to developing new cures.

The Ticket Game

As the Giants and the Royals went at it, the bigger game for some fans took place in the hours before the first World Series pitch, playing baseball's season ticket-holder roulette.

The Orange and Black

Here it comes. Creeping down dark alleys. Overturning garbage cans and spooking black cats. The scariest day of the year. With the exception of your next birthday, that is. Halloween. All Hallow's Eve. The night preceding All Saint's Day. Time to carve a gourd.
