Of the 1,092 UNESCO World Heritage sites in the world, there are 23 in the United States. The big ones — the Statue of Liberty, Grand Canyon National Park, and Independence Hall — draw millions of visitors every year.

We must end bias in the justice system. Here’s one answer

Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, and nearly 50 other privileged elites, are charged with committing fraud for their roles in cheating their children’s way into prestigious universities. If they are convicted, does anyone truly expect these wealthy, white defendants to suffer the legal punishment handed out to poor, darker-skinned people who run afoul of the law? Injustice, in the form of implicit bias, is inherent in the justice system. Consider Tonya McDowell’s experience. In 2012 ...

Unsurprisingly, Mueller Comes Up Empty

No reader of my previous comments on the subject would expect surprise from me about the verdict of the Mueller report. No one nominated by a major political party to the presidency of the U.S. would have dreamed of cooperating with any foreign power to influence a U.S. presidential election. Aaron Burr, who was thought to be running for vice president but ended by opportunistically challenging Jefferson for president, requiring that the House of Representatives determine the victor, and who was...

The more things change, the more..........

The more things change, the more they remain the same. Yesterday during rest breaks from re-modeling my tractor/tool shed, I read a long online history of the U.S. between 1945 and 1955 by a former assistant history professor at West Point. Things were very similar then to today. A dynamic senator named Joe McCarthy began warning of the rise of socialism and communism in America, and he was very, very vocal. The current president didn't like very much, him but was not eager to fight him. Pr...

Yes, Virginia, bluebells also grow in Indiana

National Park Service photo Geographically speaking, my always stunning crop of Virginia Bluebells got to Indiana from a plant nursery in West Virginia. But as is often the case in the plant world, geography, history and personal preference get a little tangled in the journey. Yes, the Virginia Bluebells name came from their 17th century discovery in the Colony of Virginia, but they are actually native from New York to Alabama and west to Kansas and Minnesota – and showing up in 18 species al...

A Wealth Tax is Constitutional

Calvin H. Johnson The Constitution, Article I, section 9, clause 4, requires that a “direct tax” must be apportioned among the states by population.    Elizabeth Warren has proposed an annual wealth tax, reaching the rate of 3% of wealth for those who have more than a $1 billion of wealth.     Warren’s wealth tax would be constitutional.    The defining characteristic of a “direct tax,” according to the Founders, is that it is the kind of tax in which apportionment among the states by...

LGBTQ Brooklyn – A Gay Guy’s Weekend Guide to Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Promenade has some of the best views of Manhattan With over two million people living in the borough, Brooklyn is New York City’s most populated part of the city—but strangely, a lot of visitors and many Manhattanites don’t know much about it. Brooklyn’s big culture and attitude is reflected in its diversity of people, cuisine, and even languages. Many of the distinct Brooklyn neighborhoods are recognized as ethnic enclaves, hubs of a particular culture. Brooklyn is easi...

WI GOP Chief: Milwaukee’s ‘History With Socialism’ Makes It ‘Obvious Choice’ For DNC

As former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) praised the economic benefits of the Democratic National Committee’s decision to host its convention in Milwaukee, the head of the state’s Republican Party suggested the decision was fueled by the city’s “long history with socialism.” In a statement to local newspapers — the Journal Sentinel and the Capital Times — Wisconsin GOP executive director Mark Jefferson called out Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as well as the city’s past “thre...

Kentucky Schools Forced To Close As Teachers Stage ‘Sick Out’ Protest

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — At least six Kentucky school districts were forced to close Thursday — including the two largest systems in the state — as hundreds of teachers called in sick to protest what one leader called “half-truths” and “shadiness” at the state legislature. The “sick out” was organized by the group KY 120 United, a reference to the state’s 120 counties, which encouraged teachers in a Facebook post Wednesday night to call in sick. Within hours, the state’s two largest school distri...

Is Confronting Fake History Worth It?

After fighting a few of these battles, I still believe it is worth it. I thought about this question again while watching Princeton historian Kevin Kruse take on Dinesh D’Souza. Kruse created a thread of over 120 historians who either debunked or expressed criticism of D’Souza’s historical writings. For his part, D’Souza seems to thrive on Kruse’s attention and shows no awareness of the significant rebuke by historians of many ideological stripes (left, center, right). D’Souza had this to say in...

Pennsylvania Hockey: A Long, Proud History

For more than a hundred years, hockey has been a Pennsylvania passion. Its people and teams have made an indelible mark on both the NHL and the sport itself, and fans on both sides of the state have had plenty to cheer, yell, hope, mope, and even cry about. From Hall of Fame classes to shatterproof glass, from Stanley Cups to fisticuffs, the Keystone State has made its mark on the game, and the game has returned the favor.

Thomas Jefferson's Ten Rules to Live By

Thomas Jefferson was skilled in many fields. In December 1962, John F. Kennedy entertained a group of Nobel prize winners in the White House and welcomed them as the most distinguished gathering of intellects to dine in the Executive Mansion “with the possible exception of when Mr. Jefferson dined here alone.” Jefferson cared for people and always offered advice when asked. A year before his death, he was asked by a father to give some counsel to his young son, Thomas Jefferson Smith. He respo...

Addressing the state of our disunion

One ironic thing about our recent State of the Union drama was its clear illustration of America’s disunion, from the fight over whether, how, where and when to have it, to notable eye-rolling and sitting on hands during it, to follow up commentary that shared precious little common ground. And it happened while both sides of the political aisle claimed to be uniters opposed to their “divisive” rivals. To understand this, it helps to remember that unity, in the sense of agreement on the specific...
