For all the fear about #MeToo’s effects — predictions that merely clueless men would be put in the same pen as felonious men — the difference between outcomes illustrates that we’re not treating them all the same.
Hours into what was supposed to be the epic redux of last year’s white nationalist/neo-Nazi/fascist/whining white male hatefest, even the Popsicle and water vendors seemed to outnumber the Unite the Right marchers.
Greens, for example, hold that work that takes place outside the labor market — caring for the disabled, children and the elderly, for example — is of real societal value and ought to be financed accordingly.
I want every American to know that two Trump supporters were spotted at the president’s last rally, in Ohio, wearing T-shirts that read, “I’d rather be Russian than a Democrat.” That’s an interesting data point.
What you won’t hear Trump talk about are the economic benefits of protecting all of California’s rivers — and thus California’s salmon industry. Or other businesses that rely on the health of the river system.
We believe that the Oscars are different from, maybe even better than, other awards shows because it tells us it is. But the awards show is really about one thing and one thing only: selling the movie industry.

Led by Newt Gingrich 20 years ago, Republicans tried to reform Medicare and Medicaid. Over the last two years, they tried to replace Obamacare and reform Medicaid. Both times the public’s fear turned against them.
All it takes for most of today’s guardians of the digital galaxy to drive an offending outlet toward obscurity is for one of them to make the first move. That illustrates the immense influence of the social networks.
Surely there’s a way to bridge this divide. As a lesbian with a deep Christian faith, I would like to cast a vision for how we can resolve this conflict in a way that affirms the value and dignity of everyone involved.
Mitch Landrieu’s personal style would play well with the white working class and whose convictions and history play well with African-Americans and others. He’d kill a third-party candidate’s chances in 2020.
