The day after

WASHINGTON -- You know the feeling. You wake up filled with dread but, still groggy, you can't put your finger on the reason.

Beauty and the beast

WASHINGTON -- The recent kerfuffle over a secret recording of Sen. Mitch McConnell's campaign strategy meeting, which focused on opposition research about a likely opponent, actress Ashley Judd, has divided observers into two groups.

‘In the darkest of times … turn on the light

With all the senseless and terrible things that have been occurring throughout our country, it's been difficult for me to keep my faith in humanity. I've always kept a quote from Oscar Wilde that reads "Everyone may not be good, but there is something good in everyone" close at hand. And I've also firmly believed in that… up until recently. Now I find it more difficult to believe that those who are behind destructive occurrences that affect innocent people have even a smudge of goodness buried deep within them.

Guns but no roses

WASHINGTON -- The biggest obstacle to the Obama administration's push for tighter gun control may be its own best argument: Newtown.

Working in the schools

Last summer, I was meeting with some members of the district staff to talk about the upcoming United Way campaign. Every year since I arrived, I have tried to do something a little "out there" to generate some fun and interest in the campaign. I have sung alma maters at high school football games, gotten a buzz cut, been slimed and soaked, and taken pies in the face. I think it's been a good thing. The district's participation in the United Way campaign has been exemplary, which is of tremendous benefit to our community as a whole. So ...

FOX News case one to watch

Long-time readers can probably guess that I am not a fan of FOX News. Their entire idea of "fair and balanced" is ludicrous -- as would, admittedly, be such a claim from any of the cable news networks.

Not a ‘quota woman’

Margaret Thatcher never cared much for feminists and other progressive equal-rights movements. Yet she deserves to be honored by those of us who do, whether we like the result of her politics or not.

What do your waking hours mean to the spinning earth? Can you tilt the axis, change the seasons, speed up or slow down the day or night? Can you manipulate tides or winds or clouds or storms? Do you have a part to play in the saga that is your life? Do you have a vote in the outcome of your own legacy?

No biology teacher

I have taught many subjects, for some of which I certainly did not have certification, such as speech, debate and mathematics. I have even been pressed into emergency teacher status for a special education class and the band. Each one of the preceding two could have a paper printed about the experience. However, the one I feared most and the one the students really wanted me to do was become their teacher for the sex education part of the biology class!

Why I can’t have nice things

Recently I have learned to really understand the phrase "this is why we can't have nice things" which I heard all through my childhood but never really understood the significance of. After spilling juice on tablecloths staining them for eternity or somehow managing to ruin the playground set in our backyard, I would always hear my mom -- in a very exasperated tone, I should add -- exclaim: "See! This is why we can't have nice things!" And being my young and carefree self I would think to myself "it's not my fault the playground set couldn't handle ...

Red carpet-bombing to save the girls

NEW YORK -- The striking juxtaposition of the preternaturally perfect Angelina Jolie, waifish and wispy in a ghostly gown, and the punchy Pakistani schoolgirl Malala, her face cruelly misshapen by the effects of a Taliban bullet to the head, captures the confluence of feminine power assembled here to "lean on" the world to save women and girls.

Plant Sex Ed

Do all plants have flowers? It is a timely topic in spring, with flowers abounding and air that is laden with pesky pollen. Like any good love story, plant sex has no paucity of details and drama. To make our investigation easier, we can divide plants into four groups. They all do it differently, in ways that make a lot of sexual sense depending on the respective environment.

Where Obama should listen to Rand Paul: legal pot

As the nation's capital prepares to open its first legal medicinal marijuana dispensary and Sen. Rand Paul's call for legalization basks in bipartisan praise, it's time for President Barack Obama to clear the air around his own passive-aggressive position on pot.
