The Cold War continues

I was, frankly, quite delighted to see that my former student Chai Feldblum, who grew up to be one of the nation's leading scholars and lawyers on issues of equality, especially for women and LGBT Americans, was confirmed to serve a full term on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Chai, a longtime law professor at Georgetown University, was first appointed to the EEOC in 2009 and then was a recess appointment in 2010. Her term expired last July, and her re-nomination has been languishing along with the nominations of more than a hundred other highly qualified people for executive ...

Corn subsidies draw nearly universal ire

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., are about as opposite politically as two people can be. Nonetheless, last week they joined forces to introduce a bill to repeal the federal requirement to blend corn ethanol into gasoline.

Obamacare: Fair share of less care

Lately, I've been hearing from readers who are among the million Californians who had private health care plans, received cancellation notices and now have to buy new coverage. Some figured that if they signed up with their old providers - Blue Shield or Anthem - they'd have access to the same doctors and hospitals. Not quite. In Marin, San Francisco and Alameda counties, new plans in Covered California exchanges don't include doctors and hospitals in other counties.

Google’s barge glides by in SF

The developers who wanted to build 8 Washington in San Francisco spent seven years lobbying City Hall - winning approval from the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors - only to watch opponents kill the project by putting a successful measure on the November ballot.

Obamacare’s next problem: Doc Shock

"The bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future," President Barack Obama said of his signature Affordable Care Act on Tuesday. It would be easier to believe the president if he hadn't said in 2009, "If you like the plan you have, you can keep it. If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too."

The criminal justice system at its worst

You may remember hearing about the Montana judge who sentenced a former high school teacher who admitted to raping a 14-year-old student to 30 days in prison.

Knockout Game: No big deal?

The "knockout game" - and the media underreporting of it - combines the breakdown of the family with the media's condescending determination to serve as a public relations bureau for blacks. The "game" is a dare in which a young man - all the perps appear to be male people of color, mostly blacks - tries to literally knock out an innocent bystander with one blow. Both National Public Radio and The New York Times say these reports of the "knockout game" being widespread are overblown and do not represent a trend. Really?

Let Obama play the Iran hand

When, after the massacres at Newtown and the Washington Navy Yard, Republicans refused to outlaw the AR-15 rifle or require background checks for gun purchasers, we were told the party had committed suicide by defying 90 percent of the nation.
