On Monday the Supreme Court will hear a dispute between the U.S. Navy and the territory of Guam that turns on interpretation of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, also known as CERCLA or the Superfund statute.

Celebrating connections with friends and family during Passover and Easter

As Passover folds into Easter, I am reminded of how much I always loved it when the two holidays brushed hands. Growing up, the closeness of these holidays opened a window of mutual connection for me with my Christian friends. As a Jewish minority, both in the town and the school where I grew up in Virginia, I was delighted to be able to come out of isolation and celebrate with everyone else. Even if their moms were baking ham and mine was making potato kugel, the fact that they were doing it in...

Chance for real bipartisanship: End ‘policing for profit’

Baltimore Journalist H.L. Mencken succinctly captures my view of the reignin...

Italy’s Highest Court Saves 800-Year-Old Monastery From Steve Bannon

“The Council of State ruled that the Culture Ministry was correct in cancelling the concession it had given to the Dignitatis Humanae Institute,” a conservative think tank whose stated mission is “supporting Christians in public life, … [in] response to increasing efforts to silence the Christian voice in the public square.” Bannon was leading an effort to establish a training program for right-wing Christian leaders at the monastery, but “the court found that the institute had lied when it bid...

Five Questions with Mark Gerson

Mark Gerson is a serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist (see his short bio below). I first met Mark in Israel in 2003, when he offered me a job at GLG straight out of college. It was one of the most rewarding work and personal experiences in my career, and also where I met my wife. Mark is one of the smartest and thoughtful people, and I’ve been lucky to call him a friend ever since. This week, Mark launched his new book, The Telling, and I thought it’s worth sharing with a broader...
