Another Bush presidency?

Former governor Jeb Bush gave a foreign policy speech yesterday in Chicago where he tried to distance himself from his brother George’s administration.  In case you’ve forgotten what a disaster the last Bush presidency was, take a look at this.

Brian Williams is not the problem

The salivating Washington media is.  Don’t get me wrong; I couldn’t care less about Brian Williams.  If ever there was an example of a stereotypical blow-dried network  news anchor, it’s him.  But all the chatter by the Washington talking heads about this issue just exposes the fact that far less attention was paid to all the news personalities and organizations who didn’t hold the Bush administration accountable in the lead up to the Iraq War- a much more important issue.

Finally. SCOTUS agrees to take on marriage equality

Thirty-six states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriages.  The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee over whether  same-sex marriages should be legal throughout the nation or if individual states have the right to determine that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.  It’s time for the question to be resolved.  It’s time for equality for all Americans.

The Charlie Hebdo massacre

Four cartoonists Five cartoonists were among the 12 murdered at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on January 7th.  My colleagues have banded together and continue to offer their support in the way they know best- through cartoons.
