If you’ve paid any attention to the Gaza Arabs rioting on Israel’s border, you would have heard that they were participating in peaceful protests. But your own eyes know peaceful when they see it. And what you're seeing is

#NoMoreApologies

Does anyone say “department store” anymore? If you’re a Millennial or maybe even a tad older, you may not even be aware of what a department store is. If you're thinking, Walmart or Target, or even Kohl’s, think again. Until the 1970s or so, department stores were grand affairs; multi-story edifices, arranged in

Crimes of Violence and Vagueness

What’s an immigrant got to do these days to get deported?  How about commit first-degree burglary? Twice! Nah! It’s not like first-degree burglary is a “crime of violence” or anything like that. At least, not according to the Supreme Court. The recent Sessions v. Dimaya court decision was eye-opening. And not just because

As Storms Go By

In a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday, 73 percent of voters said President Trump's alleged 2006 affair with Stormy Daniels is not an important issue. Of course it’s not an important issue. It has less intrigue than even the campiest of Hollywood B movies. And it certainly doesn’t have the trappings of a classic film

It’s An Equal Life

Former President Obama is negotiating with Netflix to produce a variety of programs. It was thought that these programs would have a talk-show format, and be of a political nature. But it appears, however, that Obama has caught the movie bug, and is set to produce a remake of the classic It’s A
