There’s no place for racism in the party of Lincoln

The upcoming federal holiday in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. provides a perfect time to reflect on his contributions to our nation and consider how his values can guide our public discourse today.

His methods contrasted dramatically with those of his opponents. King’s crusade for civil rights was waged through peaceful self-sacrifice...

WIRTW #538 (the “drones” edition)

OSHA is now using camera-carrying drones to investigate outdoor workplaces. The good news? Use is intended to be limited to areas that are otherwise difficult and dangerous for OSHA inspectors to access. Plus, OSHA will not use them without an employer's consent. The bad news? Employers that withhold consent could face OSHA's ire and a search warrant. Plus, the program lacks any protections for things like scope of recording, employee privacy, or third-party access to the video. You can more abo...

Hear Mary Oliver (RIP) Read Five of Her Poems: “The Summer Day,” “Little Dog’s Rhapsody in the Night,” “Many Miles” and “Night and the River”

Poets get to have strong opinions about what poetry should be and do, especially poets as well-loved as Mary Oliver, who passed away yesterday at the age of 83. “Poetry, to be understood, must be clear,” she told NPR in an interview, “It mustn’t be fancy…. I always feel that whatever isn’t necessary should not be in the poem.” Oliver’s Zen approach to her art was to cut right to the heart of things, to honor natural, unpretentious expression. “I don’t know exactly what a prayer is,” she ...
