    At VA medical center: Just get it done
    I'm standing on the top floor of a medical center that is supposed to be open. It is not. In fact, it's not even close. Five months after the promised opening of the VA Medical Center, there are unfinished concrete floors, missing ceilings and scores...

    Getting straight answers from politicians is long, hard slog
     I often hear from readers who are frustrated they can't get straight answers from the people who represent them in Washington. Residents who can't get calls returned, positions explained — even one guy so desperate to speak with his congressman...
  • Gator alums' political clout has waned in recent years

    Chances are you haven't heard of Christina Bonarrigo or Johnny Castillo. A couple decades ago I could have almost guaranteed you'd know at least one of them some day. That's how certain the pathway was from student politics at the University of...

    Rendell talks U.S. Transportation Secretary post

    Scott sends shock waves by rejecting high-speed-rail money
    If this Florida gig doesn't work out, Rick Scott certainly has a future in Egypt. I've never quite seen anything like his rejection of high-speed rail. He didn't form a study committee. He didn't wait for a ridership study. He didn't wait for...
