  • Liberals storm California's bedrooms

    I have a slightly different take on California's recent decision to regulate college sex. Don't get me wrong, it's beyond idiotic, unworkable, even borderline Orwellian. We'll get to all that. But I also think it's incredibly useful. You see, for...

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the irreplaceable Supreme Court justice
    To the editor: I find the debate about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg more than fascinating, and I understand those who would have her retire so that President Obama may pick her replacement. ("Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg signals she has no...

    UCLA football: Pac-12 games could end up on DirecTV
    TEMPE, Ariz. — Pac-12 fans might actually have a glimmer of hope. The Pac-12 Networks could yet end up on DirecTV, as Commissioner Larry Scott again expressed optimism. This time, though, it wasn't entirely based on winning a tug-of-war with the...
  • Obamacare initiative makes headway in Republican states

    Obamacare initiative makes headway in Republican states
    President Barack Obama's plan to extend health coverage to millions of poor Americans remains highly contentious, yet it is gaining momentum among several initially reluctant states where financial pragmatism is trumping ideology. Up to a dozen states,...
  • The Fountainhead: so much more than just a novel

    The Fountainhead: so much more than just a novel
    I came across Ayn Rand during a summer philosophy course, where I was introduced to her philosophy of objectivism. So I was dismayed when I learned that I would have to read one of her works, The Fountainhead, the summer before my junior year of high...
