Word of the week: Apostrophe

You know what an apostrophe is. It’s the little squiggle above the baseline in don’t and it’s that substitutes for a missing letter (o and i, respectively).

We get apostrophe from Greek, with stops in Latin and French; the original form m...

How Rudy Giuliani’s Bid to Discredit Mueller Played Into Impeachment Probe

Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast/GettyMore than a year ago, Donald Trump’s personal attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow began working, with the president’s sign-off, on a “counter-report” to push back against Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

But it’s still proven explos...

How to protect seniors from high drug costs but protect innovation

An unusual bill to constrain drug prices emerged July 25 from the Senate Finance Committee. Its main feature was unprecedented: a government-imposed cap on price increases on medicines in the popular Medicare Part D program.
