Whistling past the bad polls

In March 2006, CBS News announced that President George W. Bush had stumbled into a "record low" approval rating of 34 percent. All the other networks jumped on the poll. CNN was reporting the number every hour on the hour. The survey confirmed their suspicions. The wheels on the Bush presidency had come off.

Forgive & forget Benghazi, dude

"Dude, this was, like, two years ago." Thus spake former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor on Thursday after Fox News Channel anchorman Bret Baier asked him whether he had been involved in changing talking points to prepare then-U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice for Sunday talk shows in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi, Libya, attacks that left four Americans dead. Vietor explained that he should not be expected to remember something as "mundane" as "the process of editing talking points."

Delta College growing strong

Two years ago, Delta College was facing the prospect of closing its doors to summer school because of possible state revenue reductions. State budget cuts caused the college to limp through the recession, slashing courses, and losing faculty/staff positions through retirements. We had little operational funding to hire replacements. Then California voters passed Proposition 30 in November 2012, creating a five-year tax increase that staved off massive budget cuts and set a steadier course for higher education in California and the San Joaquin Delta Community College District.

Lethal injection is torture, who’s responsible?

News reports this week were filled with lamentations from death penalty opponents about the messy and unnecessarily painful execution of Oklahoma's Clayton Lockett. As Andrew Cohen wrote in The Atlantic, Oklahoma corrections officials "were using an untested mix of lethal drugs, never previously used in that dosage combination, obtained through secret means, which precluded the possibility of oversight from attorneys or medical officials on the quality of the drugs. They were warned by medical experts, and asked by defense attorneys, to open up the process to review - by the courts, by doctors, by some members of the public. Yet ...
