When FDR ran for president, he seemed an unlikely savior: a rich dilettante with a funny accent, a withered body, and cigarettes he smoked from a holder. But Roosevelt had a message and a cause: the "forgotten man" — the broken farmer in the West, the apple vendor hawking his wares for a nickel in in Manhattan, the Chicago and St. ...

Comment on apple cider caramels by Linda

In reply to Caroline. Yes, I’ve been using the Vermont Boiled Cider to make these for years. Turns out Great!! I use a little more than a third of a cup.

Joe Biden is doubling down on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour despite the economic downturn. It could bump paychecks for over 27 million workers.

BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP via Getty Images Biden is pushing ahead with raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour even as the downturn takes a toll on small businesses. The Biden campaign hasn't laid out a timeline to implement it, and it did not respond whether it supported a House bill that would raise it to that level by 2025. Congress last raised the federal minimum wage in 2009. It's the longest stretch without a wage hike in US history. Republicans oppose it, arguing it hurts employers an...

Could California see the rise of a new third party?

As the official Election Day approached while millions of voters were casting ballots by mail, in deposit boxes and at early voting centers during the last month, it looked distinctly possible that this might be the last election of its precise kind. This wasn’t just because President Trump threatened not to recognize the outcome, which bears the possibility of throwing America into unprecedented, almost unbearable constitutional crisis. But in California, there was the strong possibility that v...
