  • Mental illness and guns have created a national epidemic

    Before day's end, 86 Americans who were alive yesterday will be dead from gun violence. One of us dies from a bullet every 17 minutes. That statistic lends a certain futility to the anguished plea of Richard Martinez: "Not one more!" He made this...

    If there were a medal of valor for members of Congress, Sens. Claire McCaskill and Kirsten Gillibrand would deserve it for their success in reforming the U.S. military. Thanks largely to their efforts, the armed services must radically change the way they...
  • Are Hispanics in danger of becoming white?

    To all those who complain that Hispanics are unwilling to assimilate, listen up. Research shows that not only do they embrace American culture, but many also buy into the convoluted messaging around race and ethnicity that has long been this country's...
