One of the most memorable things for me about the story Howard’s End (other than the visual of walking through the night to arrive in a field of wildflowers at dawn) is the vivid portrayal of a worker’s professional downfall. The character leaves one job because of bad advice from a One Percenter, and then [...]
Democrats, what makes any of these politicians a good choice – not just the best choice among those who are running, or a popular choice, but an actual good choice to become the next President of the United States? [...]
Speculation over the potential 2016 presidential candidacy of former senator and secretary of state Hillary Clinton is interesting up to a point.

Now that we’re planning to have a Democratic Party president again, the right-wing nutskies who decided back in the 1990s that Hillary Clinton was a coke-dealing murderer have emerged from their eight-year-long hibernation to come up with some new conspiracy theories. My current favorite is that Barack Obama is the “most successful communist mole ever.” [...]
