  • Who's your daddy? Or in this case, who's your donor?

    At first I thought I was hearing it wrong. A lesbian couple who had a daughter through artificial insemination was chasing the sperm donor for child support. "That can't be right," I said. It wasn't. Actually, the government was chasing the sperm...
  • Occupy Wall Street has changed the national conversation

    In 2012, Americans will go to the polls and vote for who they want to represent them in Washington. But, as 2011 showed, the real political momentum is not to be found in Washington. Our institutions have let us down, not only by failing to prevent the...
  • Author tells wounded vets' stories

    Last week, the Pentagon marked the official end to the war in Iraq with a brief ceremony in a secure part of the Baghdad airport - helicopters hovering protectively overhead. Although Defense Secretary Leon Panetta later declared that the cost paid by...
  • We are alienated by dependence on technology

    In the 1840s, Benjamin Disraeli, still a long way from being prime minister, wanted to wake people up to the plight of the British working class -- and move them to act. The alarm he sounded wasn't delivered in a speech, a pamphlet, or an article -- but...
  • Disconnecting from noise and distraction is a good start

    "Our life together can be better." That's the opening sentence of an important new book by Jim Wallis called "On God's Side: What Religion Forgets and Politics Hasn't Learned About Serving the Common Good." Wallis, in addition to being CEO of the D.C.-...

  • Opportunities are within our grasp

    No matter where we are on the political spectrum, or what we think the role of government should be, most of us would agree that something is broken in America. One of the things that defines our country -- the American Dream -- is in real danger. As...
  • Is sleep deprivation the reason the Romney campaign is blowing it?

    "Saturday Night Live" opened its new season with a sketch in which President Obama acknowledges that "things aren't great, the economy's in the tank" and "the job market is horrible," but says he's not worried because his campaign has a "secret weapon" to...
  • Helping Italians tell their own stories

    ROME -- Ciao from Rome, where I'm delighted to announce the launch of L'Huffington Post. I've always had a great fondness for the boot-shaped country and as a Greek, I feel a kinship with a fellow Mediterranean land where someone is always trying to get...
  • Why on earth are we still in Afghanistan?

    In the last month, the United States has hit three milestones in the war in Afghanistan. In late September, the 33,000 additional soldiers that President Obama ordered to Afghanistan in late 2009 came home, leaving 68,000 troops in the country as part of...
  • Instead of debate zingers, how about serious proposals to boost employment?

    As the presidential debates begin, the focus shouldn't be on who is going to "win," but on whether we are finally going to get a serious debate on jobs and the economy. If not, then the real loser is going to be the American public. But I don't expect...
