Where are the adults? We have a report and testimony that sets out meticulously detailed evidence that Russia tampered with our national election and intends more of the same. That the Trump team encouraged and continues to encourage such interference is undeniable, a public reality. Muel…

Watching today’s hearings didn’t tell me anything that I didn’t know already. After witnessing efforts to scatter diversionary chaff into the winds by some on partisan point, I’m hopeful that even hardcore Trumpists understand that he is an enemy to America’s security. The level of lies, …

When I reread my response to Don and Joe, I see my own tendency to fall into the mire of partisan bickering. This tendency to move away from thoughtful discussion and, rather, demonize one another is at the heart of America’s current political divide. Labels like liberal or conservative don…

By the way, "chafe" should be "chaff" though both might apply.

Let me see if I can separate the chafe from the wheat. I’ll take things in the order you offer them, then reply with questions. 1) Roe v Wade was adopted in a bipartisan America that agreed that one’s reproductive rights are personal, protected under the 14th Amendment, and saying, in effect…
