  • Police forces nationwide need a reality check

    One of the unsung blessings of Twitter is the way it continually reminds us that willful ignorance is alive and thriving in the American body politic. In the past week, we were treated to widely retweeted photos purporting to show Capt. Ron Johnson of...
  • Is police brutality on the rise? We need data

    Americans had spent days watching round-the-clock coverage of the escalating tensions in Ferguson, Missouri when President Obama acknowledged that we are "deeply disturbed" by the situation. Indeed we are. Take your pick of the most dismaying elements of...
  • Lives, dreams on the line as Congress dithers over immigration

    Robert Sagastume is Honduran by birth, American by choice and legally stuck somewhere in between by politics. He is also the embodiment of the humanitarian problem at the heart of our border crisis. Now a 26-year-old Midwestern college student, he...
  • Campuses need a push to confront sexual assault

    If we want to do something about sexual assault on college campuses, first we have to deal with the excuse makers. These are the people who belittle sexual assault as youthful hanky-panky taken a little too far, who dismiss statistics or personal...
  • Don't politicize the plight of the kids at the border

    Character asserts itself in times of crisis. That is certainly the case with the refugee debacle at the border. Tens of thousands of Central American children are passing through Mexico into the United States and presenting themselves to immigration...
  • Let's treat gun safety as a public health issue

    Quick, are you more likely to die by a bullet or in a car crash? Common sense would seem to suggest the latter. Cars are everywhere. We are an auto-obsessed nation. To be American is to drive -- everywhere. Teenagers itch to get behind the wheel, and the...
  • Humanitarian crisis at border defies right's platitudes about immigration

    Nine months ago, in the Wall Street Journal, a former Bush administration official described the sorry plight of children now streaming northward across the U.S.-Mexico border. Hundreds of children, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, are...
  • For sports teams, there is life after dropping offensive mascots

    Daniel M. Snyder, the beleaguered owner of Washington's National Football League franchise, had a setback this week when the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office deemed the team's name trademark "disparaging" and therefore unworthy of protection. Ever...
  • New role for Geena Davis: Setting Hollywood straight on gender

    Google Geena Davis and up pops the pose that established her as half of the "first selfie." The iconic frame from "Thelma & Louise" was reprised and tweeted recently by her costar Susan Sarandon. The photo, and the movie's recent ranking among Hollywood'...
  • The immigrant saga, played out on a soccer field in the South

    The story of Los Jets is quintessentially American. A small-town high school team, cobbled together of outcast and underdog students, struggles to overcome obstacles put in its way by unsympathetic officials and community naysayers. The once ragtag...
  • Mental illness and guns have created a national epidemic

    Before day's end, 86 Americans who were alive yesterday will be dead from gun violence. One of us dies from a bullet every 17 minutes. That statistic lends a certain futility to the anguished plea of Richard Martinez: "Not one more!" He made this...
  • What we can do for the kidnapped Nigerian girls

    The Nigerian schoolgirls will never receive the global hero status of Malala. There are too many of them. They are nameless and faceless, with at least 270 missing, not counting the 50 lucky ones who escaped their militant Islamist captors. But they...
