The election is over but the craziness continues.  There's a distinct tendency to look for evil and nefarious plots in everything that happens - every word given, every move made, every affair discovered.  It's not, tragically, the right.  My wife and I had to talk down friends under...

Regardless of what you think of that particular old crank clinging desperately to his senate seat, I roll my eyes every time I see a "news story" about some politician endorsing. Who the hell cares? Who is going to let someone tell them who to vote for in a presidential election? It's refreshing...

In what may be easily called the understatement of the decade so far, President Obama has characterized an Arizona measure that criminalizes undocumented immigration, just signed into law by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, as "misguided." Frankly, higher octane words come to mind. How about...

As the curtain mercifully falls on the Most Important Election of Your Lifetime, the nation breathes a collective sigh of relief. Or do they?

Well, the deed is done and once again the country has re-invented itself by electing an African-American, Barack Obama, as President of the United States. One could only wish MLK was alive to see it. Here in Vietnam, many of the expats were pulling for McCain simply because he has a history of...

Well, this is it. Election Day... We will now see how many of the campaign promises made by both candidates resonate with the general public and how much of the mud slung by the attack machine stuck to the intended target. For me, this election is 1000 times better than the last two, mostly because...

``In an era when left-handedness was considered the devil's work and lefties were often forced to use their right hand, Leonardo was an unrepentant southpaw. It has been suggested that this "difference" was an element of his genius, since his detachment allowed him to see beyond the ordinary. He...
