  • Corporate activism finds its footing on religious freedom laws

    You can tell that a movement is scoring some important points when its opponents want to change the subject. That thought comes to mind when I hear critics charge Apple CEO Tim Cook with hypocrisy in his recent protests of "religious freedom" legislation...

     Series of losses made worse by exclusion
    Dear Amy: Sixteen years ago my best friend introduced me to a man who would become my husband. Her husband, "Stan," also was my (future) husband's best friend. The four of us traveled together for work and for fun and saw each other at least once a...
