Despite delayed USC signing ceremony, Boubacar Coulibaly ready to compete

On a typical signing day, any year but 2020, Boubacar Coulibaly would have stood in the San Gabriel Academy gymnasium. His teammates would have stood behind him as the center, decked out in USC gear, would have signed his national letter of intent to play basketball for the Trojans. But it is 2020. And with nothing typical about Wednesday’s signing day, Coulibaly opted to delay putting pen to paper to create as much normalcy as possible. Coulibaly is still firm in his commitment to USC, San Gabr...

Naming and reclaiming the liberal ideal

On New Year’s Day, 2000, Nobel laureate James Buchanan challenged his fellow classical liberals to save the “soul” of liberalism. “People need something to yearn and struggle for,” he wrote. “If the liberal ideal is not there, there will be a vacuum and other ideas will supplant it.” Twenty years later, Buchanan’s fears seem prescient. Contempt for liberalism is growing at both ends of the ideological spectrum—from the nationalist right and progressive left. Illiberal ideas and attitudes have se...

Catholic church allowed celebrity priest to minister after groping woman

Rev. C. John McCloskey III is a famous, beloved Opus Dei priest who is cozy with Washington power players like Newt Gingrich and Sam Brownback, both of whom he converted to Catholicism. In 2002 Rev. McCloskey was accused of groping a woman who sought his counsel, and in 2005 Opus Dei settled the complaint by paying the woman $977,000 (which was given to Opus Dei by an anonymous donor). Opus Dei promised the woman that Rev. McCloskey would be banned from pastoral work, but The Washington Post ...

SCOTUS Map: Summer 2018

The Supreme Court is in a liminal state this summer. With the departure of Justice Anthony Kennedy, and the confirmation fight over his successor stretching into a second month, the court finds itself suspended between the end of one era and the dawn of the next. It is little wonder, then, that the justices on the speaking circuit are fielding questions about changes both big and small. Audiences at judicial conferences, lectures and post-theater talkbacks want to know: What do the justices see ...

McCloskey on Economics, Economists and Physicists

When Nobel laureate physicist Ernest Rutherford (1871 – 1937) claimed that “Physics is the only real science. The rest are just stamp collecting” he was perhaps displaying the arrogance that comes with the territory of knowing certain fundamental truths that are denied to non-physicists. Economists too can be arrogant for similar reasons. They know something … Continue reading McCloskey on Economics, Economists and Physicists

Take this test to see if you can identify the correct lowercase G. Most people can't.

This looks really simple – just choose the correct lowercase "looptail" G in the video above. Do it now, before spoilin' it by readin' a lowercase G in the rest of this post. (Spoiler Gs below.) Okay, so it's not really that simple. In a recent Johns Hopkins experiment, only 7 out of 25 people were able to identify the correct letter. Only 2 out of 38 even knew a second lowercase "G" existed, and only 1 was able to correctly write it. According to Metro: The experiments suggest our knowle...

Bill Cosby Judge To Rule Wednesday On Releasing Juror Names

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — The judge who presided over Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial will decide Wednesday whether to identify jurors who deadlocked in the case after a week of deliberations. Judge Steven O’Neill fears there would be a chilling effect on jurors needed for Cosby’s retrial if the first jury discusses the deliberations with the media. Lawyers for several media outlets argued at a hearing Tuesday that jurors’ names should almost always be public to ensure transparency in the judicia...
