Pelosi’s Suggestion That President Trump Postpone the State of the Union Address Is Not as Strange as It Sounds

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked President Trump on Wednesday to postpone the State of the Union address, she gave him two options – reschedule the speech, or send it to Congress in a letter. Pelosi’s letter argued that the speech raised safety concerns because many members of the Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security, which handle security for the event, are furloughed due to the partial government shutdown. She noted that a State of the Union address has never before...

Best airport bars in the US

Grabbing a stool at an airport bar generally means selecting an overpriced, watered-down cocktail or a short pour of wine from a sticky laminated menu. A new crop of airport bars is changing that, none more so than Root Down in Denver International Airport. The Denver airport is one of the best places to grab a drink during a long layover or delay in general. New Belgium Brewing has a hub in the airport, and Vino Volo serves up fine wine with cheese plates. Few bars match up to Root Down in ...

The 10 Best-Directed Films of 2018

Cinema is a language beyond words, one we speak regardless of where we’re from. It allows us to both put forth and absorb ideas through picture and sound, telling stories that transcend borders while still being specific to our experiences. Though, despite our constant fixation with discussing cinema, I often wonder how much we’re truly understanding one another. Critic Matt Zoller Seitz once wrote that refusing to engage with film form is like “[refusing] to engage with the heart of a wor...

Miles Morales is an artist. We’re introduced to the movie version of Miles (Shameik Moore) as he sits at a drawing table sketching a sword-wielding robot.

The loss of Eric Bauman hurts state Democrats…and California

Since the Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal first broke a little over a year ago, the #MeToo movement has transitioned from #MeToo to #MeThree to #MeMore. So far, the craze has taken down powerful men such as CBS network executive Les Moonves, to Hollywood star Kevin Spacey, and comedian Bill Cosby. The list seems endless. The most recently #MeToo casualty is California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman. Last week, Bauman was forced to resign after multiple allegations of salty language, in...

Interesting facts on the most famous Southern Baptist ever

Lottie Moon, missionary to China from 1873 to her death in 1912, is the most famous person in Southern Baptist history. Our largest offering, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions, is named for her. In time, her life came to be mythologized by Southern Baptists and her name invoked in order to raise money for missions. Over $1.5 billion has been received for overseas missions use since 1888. I hope your church has and will receive a Lottie Moon Offering for Internationa...

The Rolling Stones Curate 'Confessin' the Blues'

None The blues' influence on rock 'n' roll is well documented. Likewise, the Rolling Stones' reverence for blues music is equally chronicled. Therefore, the compilation Confessin' the Blues makes sense. Attempting to refocus the public's attention onto the bluesmen who inspired the legendary rock band, the album is composed of classic blues tracks curated by the Rolling Stones. Part of the album's proceeds benefit Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven Foundation, an organization devoted to promoting blue...

Procedural Implications of the Midterm Elections

     Well before the recent election, activists and pundits were hard at work shaping expectations for what would change in light of anticipated Republican losses.   Many of these predictions reflect considerable naivete about the operations of Congress.   Although many questions remain open, it seems useful to review what we know to this point.   This is the first of two posts; the second will focus specifically on budgetary issues.      First, as to leadership.   The Senate is unlik...
