  • Police forces nationwide need a reality check

    One of the unsung blessings of Twitter is the way it continually reminds us that willful ignorance is alive and thriving in the American body politic. In the past week, we were treated to widely retweeted photos purporting to show Capt. Ron Johnson of...
  • Is police brutality on the rise? We need data

    Americans had spent days watching round-the-clock coverage of the escalating tensions in Ferguson, Missouri when President Obama acknowledged that we are "deeply disturbed" by the situation. Indeed we are. Take your pick of the most dismaying elements of...
  • Lives, dreams on the line as Congress dithers over immigration

    Robert Sagastume is Honduran by birth, American by choice and legally stuck somewhere in between by politics. He is also the embodiment of the humanitarian problem at the heart of our border crisis. Now a 26-year-old Midwestern college student, he...
  • Time for NFL to lead on abuse, not just react

    A man should write this column. Domestic violence is a topic we're all talking about at the moment, but here's the problem. When it comes to the question of what to do about it, the discussion is lame and frustrating. We can create all the shelters and...
  • Sleeper in Kansas might upset Senate election calculus

    Let's go out on a limb and predict that a Republican majority will retake the Senate in November's elections. After all, Nate Silver, the paragon of quantitative journalism, puts the party's chances of doing so at 62.6 percent. On second thought, let's...

  • The immigrant saga, played out on a soccer field in the South

    The story of Los Jets is quintessentially American. A small-town high school team, cobbled together of outcast and underdog students, struggles to overcome obstacles put in its way by unsympathetic officials and community naysayers. The once ragtag...
  • Don't politicize the plight of the kids at the border

    Character asserts itself in times of crisis. That is certainly the case with the refugee debacle at the border. Tens of thousands of Central American children are passing through Mexico into the United States and presenting themselves to immigration...
  • Botched execution should be death knell of capital punishment

    As fervently as some may support the death penalty by lethal injection, when the process becomes the least bit messy, most of us would prefer to hide. Oklahoma began lethal injection in America. And the state has brought the nation the latest sickening...
  • Home from war, our soldiers continue to die

    March ended with this uplifting news: For the first time in seven years, no U.S. soldiers died that month in combat. Not one. It's a relieving statistic, suggesting that the heavy toll in lives of U.S. military intervention is coming to an end. That...
  • Better gun laws needed to protect the mentally ill -- and the rest of us

    The federal government believed Colby Sue Weathers was a paranoid schizophrenic. It had information that she was delusional and suicidal, unable to work and therefore eligible for Medicaid and disability benefits. One summer day in 2012, Weathers...
