  • Obama's non-ideological foreign policy not working

    So much for non-ideological foreign policy. When Barack Obama ran for president he vowed to be non-ideological. He was a pragmatist and a problem-solver. It wasn't just that George W. Bush's ideology was awful, ideology itself was a kind of sinful...
  • John Kass: Obama's eat-the-rich campaign hauled out for mid-terms

    I'm not really into the political cannibal thing. And I'm old-fashioned enough to believe that eating humans -- even in metaphor -- is still a sin. But there's something unspeakably attractive about the Democrats' eat-the-rich campaign as they approach...
  • Rachel Marsden: Tweaking the agenda for Obama's Europe trip

    U.S. President is headed to Europe this week. There used to be a time prior to his election when he would travel to Europe and inspire the masses -- mostly on the strength of their own idealistic projections. But now, never has a Nobel Peace Prize...
  • Robert B. Reich: Back to college, the only gateway to the middle class

    This week, millions of young people head to college and universities, aiming for a four-year liberal arts degree. They assume that degree is the only gateway to the American middle class. It shouldn't be. For one thing, a four-year liberal arts degree...

    Ask Amy: Nephew is a My Little Pony kind of kid
    Dear Amy: I have a 5-year-old nephew who is starting kindergarten. He is a fantastic little boy who likes "boy" things like cars, but he really likes many "girl" things like Barbies, Minnie Mouse and My Little Pony. He is the most interesting 5-year-old...
  • Finding your inner work identity

    Finding your inner work identity
    Even if you're off, Labor Day seems an appropriate time to think about work. Not so much the stresses and drags of it all, but the actual things we do as working people. Most of the time — either from busyness or as victims of rote behavior...
  • Ask Amy: Grandmother worries about emotional child

    Ask Amy: Grandmother worries about emotional child
    Dear Amy: My grandchildren (a boy age 4 and a girl, who is 6) stay overnight with me once a week. Last night while putting them to bed, my granddaughter was chatting and the conversation led to her feelings. She said that she doesn't know why, but she...

    Don't vent your work hate on anonymous sites
    When I first heard about a website that lets people send anonymous email messages to friends, bosses or co-workers, I thought: Well, there's an idea that's not going to end well. Fortunately for humanity, it didn't, or at least it hasn't so far. The...
  • Saying the long goodbye to summer

     Saying the long goodbye to summer
    I'm figuring on saying goodbye to summer with a lime. A nice, fat lime is required, shiny on the outside, telling you that it's full of juice. And a tall glass with plenty of ice, then the gin and tonic water, followed by one more ingredient to make it...

    Ask Amy: Mom doesn't take daughter's calls
    Dear Amy: My mother and I agreed on a day and time to chat each week. I work during the week, and mom has been retired for many years and is living alone. She places the highest priority on her home, playing bridge and her selected TV viewing. We...

    Ask Amy: Man should leave abusive marriage
    Dear Amy: I am 75 years old and very sad. I have been married for 39 years. It has been very rocky. My wife is very likely bipolar and has serious anxiety and anger issues. She refuses to get medical help. I have had to call the police twice. She...
