goelovely, you ask a good question when you ask: what happens once the moderates are sidelined. Do we reach the point of endless war and suffering? I think when conflicts reach that stage, it is milit more »

Dear user_3950825, I agree with you wholeheartedly when you say: "Sometimes moderates have an edge and are the voice of reason; sometimes they are just wishy-washy. There is nothing wrong with taking more »

Dear tjbkwhs, I take issue with the idea that Scott Brown was not a moderate. You may not like him, and I wasn't his biggest fan, but to say he wasn't moderate is kind of dishonest. While other Republ more »

Dear CKL, For the record, I am not an isolationist. I spent years of my life in Kenya, helping street children. Recognition that people are different from us doesn't mean we shouldn't find ways to wor more »

Dear CKL, I knew I'd get a reaction like yours because the narrative of the US media is so overwhelming that it is a shock to read a different point of view. To be fair, I never said it is naive for U more »

Please do tell us all how much money has been throw at this over the years. My understanding is that there were serious cuts recently and that most of the money that was restored has gone to higher pa more »

One must also consider the quality of the foster homes they are entering. Some are great. Others, not so much.

I invite you to stop reading my columns. Maybe we'd both be happier...

Geolovely, thanks for your comment. My understanding is that there are oil and/or gas reserves under those islands, and so I don't think they are purely symbolic. I agree with you when you say "the wi more »

Fantastic story. Amazing woman. Thanks for telling us about her.
Posted 01/29/2014 10:46:37 EST
Thanks for that. If you haven't noticed, I get paid to write about ideas that are provocative and premature, in a way that captures the attention of a general reader. I use humor, logic, research and more »

Dear WilliamSlim1944, It's kind of amusing to hear you talk of quacks and snake oil salesmen without ever mentioning the research from the molecular biologist I cited in my article. I took the time to more »

I find this anecdote puzzling, since the system is not even operational yet. As I mentioned, the state has not even designated who will get the licenses to run the dispensaries. Are you sure this happ more »

Good point. There is no one-size-fits all solution. I suspect many breakthroughs in disease came from public research funding to universities, but were taken to scale by private pharmaceutical compani more »

47cent, I appreciate that you are expressing some care about the environment, which I care about, too. But don't you think the entire American west was once pristine and beautiful and fragile? Why is more »

Happy New Year to you, yogafriend!

I suspect Rush has a lot more power in conservative circles than Maddow has in liberal ones, but sure. Knock yourself out.
Posted 12/10/2013 08:33:16 EST
Nice try, 47. Rush is absolutely a conservatives turn to on immigration, and you are kidding yourself if you think high schoolers are the only ones who pay attention to what he says. Lots of people do more »

47cent, Let's get something clear. Although there are a lot of facts in my pieces, I am not a reporter. I am a COLUMNIST. You are reading the OPINION PAGE. It is my job to have opinions - biases, if more »

What a wonderful tribute to your dad. Thank you for sharing it with all of us.
Posted 12/03/2013 11:12:45 EST
Richstan, first of all, I'm a columnist, not a reporter. That means I'm allowed to have an opinion. Secondly, I am simply stating a fact when I say that only firefighters' pay matters. That is what p more »

Because firefighters got an equally excessive raise three years ago, and firefighters are the only thing that matters.
Posted 12/03/2013 09:03:22 EST
Just because people think a 25% raise on a salary that is already so much higher than non-uniformed city employees is excessive doesn't mean anyone is trying to "disband" the police or firefighters. L more »

You are simply factually incorrect. Iran allows inspectors at its sites. Inspectors can't access all the sites they would like to see, but Iran's declared uranium enrichment facilities have internatio more »

Miker6, there is probably no subject I have written about more than Iran's nuclear program. Where have you been?
