Making sense of the women's vote

It was only 98 years ago that women won their suffrage after a long struggle to be seen as a valid and vital part of the American electoral system. How disappointed our foremothers would be that in 2018, not all women's voices would be treated equally. Published November 5, 2018

#Believe Which Women?

As I write this, hundreds of people are converging on the streets of Washington, D.C., and in the halls of the U.S. Capitol with T-shirts saying "Believe Women." Does anyone bother to ask what this really means? Published September 27, 2018

A modern day David and Goliath

This weekend, thousands marched on the Texas Capitol in celebration of life and in memory of the more than 50 million lives lost since the infamous Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Just two days later, a Harris County grand jury tasked with investigating wrong-doing by Planned Parenthood shocked the nation by instead indicting the messenger. Published January 26, 2016

The truth about the State of the Union

On Monday, the White House tweeted out: "The #EmptySeat in the State of the Union guest box will speak for those who no longer have a voice." As expected, people took quickly to Twitter with their interpretations of that comment. Published January 12, 2016

Eco-guilt talks in Paris instead anti-ISIS agreement

Monday marked the opening of the United Nations climate change conference in Paris, with leaders from nearly 150 countries in attendance. Much has been made of the irony that global leaders are gathering in France -- just weeks after a massive terror attack -- to discuss the threat of greenhouse gas emissions.

A Veterans Day story

When I was in the eighth grade, we were given a special assignment in November to write a letter to a veteran. I had no idea to whom my letter would be sent, but I remember taking the project very seriously. Published November 11, 2015

In this Nov. 6, 2015 photo, President Barack Obama, accompanied by Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry, announces he's rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline because he does not believe it serves the national interest, in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington. In the end President Barack Obama hardly had a choice. Opposition from the Democratic base had grown so intense that Obama would have faced enormous political blowback had he approved the Keystone XL oil pipeline. On the other side, Republican
sentiment was at a fever pitch too, transforming an infrastructure project not likely to have significant lasting impacts on jobs or the environment into a powerful, and highly partisan, political symbol. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)

Obama undercuts blue collar constituency, economy

President Obama took to the microphone Friday to deliver a death blow to the Keystone XL Pipeline project, ironically on the same day the most recent job numbers were released -- demonstrating zero growth in the manufacturing industry. Published November 9, 2015

The Debate: Low expectations, lots of popcorn

The moment the whole country has been waiting for ... well, actually, not really. The expected ratings for the Democratic Party debate hosted by CNN hover around the 5 million mark -- not even in the same universe as the estimated 25 million people who tuned in to the Republican debate on CNN.

What I wish the pope would say to Congress

A pontifical-portrait toaster, Papal brewskies, pontifex-inspired milkshakes, a life-sized, cardboard cutout of Francis himself, and even, yes, holy cheese! Sounds like the pope has come to town. Published September 23, 2015
