    • The odious ODS
      Obama Derangement Syndrome is real. So is Clinton Derangement Syndrome. Or maybe it's just Democratic Derangement Syndrome. Or Anything That Scares Us Derangement Syndrome. I don't know, but it's real. Witness one Geoffrey Zakarian, who is some kind of celebrity chef. I quit watching chef shows when they all started blurring together, so I don't […]

    • Good-bye to a legend
      Helen Thomas will always be a hero to me. None of that "shero" stuff. You're either a hero or you're not, no special designation if you're a woman. Helen was a reporter, not a reportrix or a reportress. A reporter, a journalist. A real journalist.

I’m in Clinton, Tenn., at the Children’s Defense Fund’s Proctor Institute, a week-long retreat of preaching and workshops devoted to social justice for children. Of course, that means social justice for their parents and others who love […]

    • Just expand Medicaid already!
      I never thought I was a radical, but I can feel myself trending in that direction. I took part in yesterday’s Medicaid Expansion Coalition’s Day of Action, but the action was a spate of press conferences. We were all over Facebook and the evening news. It raised awareness. But no one in the state legislature likely changed […]

    • It isn't about hate?
      When President Obama arrived in Oklahoma City last night, he was greeted by a crowd of people waving the Confederate battle flag and shouting their displeasure. While it’s true the majority of people there had come to support the President, this group of about 80 people made the whole city look bad. I support their […]

    • Fred Phelps is dead
      Fred Phelps is dead and the great marriage debate is all but over. I take no great cheer in either. Phelps, as you probably know, was a former civil rights attorney who was later disbarred and who founded a radically conservative church, the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas. If you don’t know what kind […]
