The lesser of the evils?

It's pretty darn depressing when political writers are essentially writing off the 2016 election as a choice between the lesser of two evils - seven months in advance of the election. It's one thing when, after months of negative ads, we shake our heads in disgust, but we haven't even really started yet.

Is college too pricey? Wait till it’s made ‘free’

As he panders for the youth vote, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders promises free tuition at public colleges and universities because, he says, "a college degree is the new high school diploma." Rival Hillary Clinton supports President Barack Obama's plan to make community college tuition-free - that is, publicly funded. Beware, America: Imagine how expensive college tuition will be if Democrats somehow manage to make more of it "free." As for value, if Sanders has his way, you can expect the college degree to be the new high school diploma.

ESPN fires Schilling: What about liberal offenders?

ESPN fired baseball analyst and former All-Star Curt Schilling for mocking the debate about the North Carolina public facilities law. On his Facebook page, Schilling posted a meme (a graphic) with the picture of an aged and overweight man dressed in just enough women's clothing to prevent flagrant violation of public exposure laws. The photo caption read: "Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you're a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!" Under the meme, Schilling wrote: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't ...

College students do not get their money’s worth

When I worked my way through college in the 1940s, tuition was $200 to $250 a year. My children's tuition was $2,000 to $2,500 a year, and my grandchildren's college education each cost $20,000 to $40,000 a year for tuition alone.

The umbrage factory

America is a country of strivers. Alas, having attained so much success, many Americans now strive to be offended. Polite agreement to disagree is gone. Now people log on to social media where they discover words that offend their delicate sensibilities. Then they make sure everyone knows they are aggrieved. Sometimes the perennially offended even win a trophy for their troubles - such as the scalp of ESPN analyst and former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling.

Love finds a way in Oakland

In this age of hypersensitivity, the more trivial an issue is, the more controversy surrounds it. This month, Oakland's City Council voted 5-3 to adopt "Love Life" as the city's motto. Supporters of the new slogan meant well - and really who can object to an exhortation to love life? But in an age where everything is overcomplicated, the snappy marketing phrase is fraught with potholes and politics. And because it's Oaktown - racial politics.

CHINESE STUDENTS

High school seniors are eagerly watching their mail this month, hoping for the "fat envelope" indicating acceptance by the college of their choice. Unfortunately, more American students are receiving the "thin envelope" because college acceptance rates are continuing their decade-long decline.

Bathroom ‘Freedom Fighters’

Back in the 1980s, Bruce Springsteen and other rock stars formed Artists United Against Apartheid and performed a song proclaiming "Sun City" that referenced an entertainment resort in a region of South Africa. The song mocked the Reagan administration's constructive engagement policy to end apartheid. And rock stars also routinely performed in the totalitarian Soviet Union, believing that was incredibly constructive.
