"Remember Occupy Wall Street, when thousands across the country took to the streets, sleeping in tents to protest the ultra-rich 1 percent? The occupiers' frustration was real, but their ire was misdirected. They should have launched an Occupy the AARP movement instead. Government policies that transfer cash from the relatively young and poor to the relatively old and wealthy are the real scandal." (for publication 03/15)

"British spy agency MI6 wanted to recruit a North Korean asset with the help of South Africa to collect top-secret information on the secretive communist country's nuclear programme, according to a series of leaked diplomatic cables. The spy agency offered a potential asset a 'long term clandestine relationship in return for payment' but never heard back from him after a first meeting to discuss the possibility of working for MI6 also known as Secret Intelligence Service (SIS)."

The great LA gambit

"The battle for the L.A. market is joined! According to NBCSanDiego, the Chargers are working with the Oakland Raiders. Their goal: a new stadium in the L.A. area (Carson, California, to be precise). Of course, their home cities can talk them out of it, for the right price. It's not shocking that teams other than the Rams might want to move to Los Angeles. L.A. is the country's second largest media market, and with that comes a lot of TV money. However, still color me skeptical about the whole thing. I think (and I'm not alone) this is more of a ruse for the Chargers and the Raiders to extract sweetheart stadium deals from their home cities." (02/26/15)

"It might seem logical to cause a child pain in order to teach him what pain feels like, so that he'll refrain from hurting himself or others. Unfortunately, when a caretaker intentionally hurts his child, he's doing far more than teaching him what pain feels like, as well as ignoring the alternatives to teaching him to be safe and to keep his hands to himself. I'll explore both scenarios to see why spanking is unnecessary." (02/26/15)  

Grievance school

"The silliest campus incidents usually don't originate from faculty in traditional or science-based fields. Instead, they come disproportionately from explicitly politicized 'studies' disciplines, activist-oriented 'centers,' or disciplines with less rigorous intellectual content, such as creative writing and communications. (The most recent example of this is the professor of communications at the University of Michigan who wrote the now-famous 'It's OK to Hate Republicans' article for In These Times.) Boulder has a women-and-gender-studies program that proudly advertised its rough equivalent of Ward Churchill, an 'activist-in-residence' who is a community organizer without academic credentials of any kind."
