A stable nuclear Iran

The past several months have witnessed a heated debate over the best way for the United States and Israel to respond to Iran's ambiguous nuclear ambitions. Although the United States, the EU, and Iran have recently returned to the negotiating table for a possible ouverture, crisis still looms as relentless Israel antagonizes US efforts, and hawkish congress may jeopardize talks by tightening sanctions even more. The United States and its European allies are primarily concerned with weapon grade uranium, so they might accept a scenario in which Iran stops short of a nuclear weapon. Israel, however, has made it clear that it views a significant Iranian enrichment capacity alone as an unacceptable threat. It is possible that a verifiable commitment from Iran to stop short of a weapon could appease major western powers but le…

Common Sense Immigration Plan

When it comes to Immigration, I feel like there's an elephant dancing in the room in a pink Tu-Tu and everyone is pretending that he isn't there.  Every professional politician is terrified to even mention the elephant, much less acknowledge its existence. We don't need a bigger wall, mo…

The tyranny of the majority

Majority opinion cannot alter the laws of nature or the laws of human interaction that exist whether or not we codify them. Is that why groups that want to drill their views into everyone's skulls shout the loudest? Is their hope that their noise will drown the hum of truth? I've seen on many…

A Cinematic Take On Bully Culture

After recently reading a movie review, on Writer's Beat, of The Gift, a film about a bully (and much more), I started thinking about other films that I saw that included aspects of bullying and bully culture. One of my favorites was My Bodyguard (1980), which I just watched again the other day.…

A man fell from the upper deck at a baseball game in Atlanta and died. They had a moment of silence for him the next day. He was a die-hard fan, they said.

This question is, of course, posed with tongue firmly in cheek. Any "crazies" who believe Mrs. Clinton to be the spiritual legatee of Alger Hiss should pass on by. To get my personal bias out of the way -  I will probably vote for Mrs. Clinton next year, though with less enthusiasm that I might…
