"Now, I have that microphone. I’ve used it for singing for years, but I sure as hell can use it for something better than that."
It can be difficult to take Clay Aiken seriously. He's best known as the spiky-haired red-head, who lost to Ruben Studdard on "American Idol" in 2004 -- yeah, remember him? -- and then went on to sing about feeling "Invisib...

Even once released from prison, formerly incarcerated people are often denied the right to vote, to go back to school, and to get a job.

Justice appears to have gone missing from the equation.

But, it doesn't have to be.
In the United States, African Americans are far more likely to be arrested for selling or possessing drugs, even though studies have shown that African Americans and whites use drugs at the same rate, and whites are actually more likely to sell drugs...

The United States Congress is not a UFO cult. But its members are all too human, and the floors of its deliberative chambers offer exceptionally fertile ground for hatching all manner of prophecies, often of the frightening variety. 
WASHINGTON -- In the 1950s, the psychologist Leon Festinger became fascinated by a Chicago woman pseudonymously named Marian Keech, who convinced herself and a surprising number of others that the world was about to end in a biblical flood. When a...

Thank goodness for Barack Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, healthcare reform legislation that is HELPING MILLIONS of fellow American men, women, and children in need of AFFORDABLE, potentially LIFE-SAVING health insurance and primary care, including MANY adults and children with pre-existing conditions whose URGENT needs were PREVIOUSLY and CALLOUSLY denied!  And, as reform CONTINUES to strengthen and expand, MILLIONS MORE throughout this great nation, including older Americans in their fifties and sixties who lost their jobs during the Recession, the self-employed, and those whose jobs do not offer insurance, including Americans young and old who are sick, and Americans young and old currently in good health who understand how terrible reality can become unexpectedly, will benefit!

What have you been so busy doing?
The average age of a state legislator nationwide is 56, but that didn't stop these folks from running for office. With differing political ideologies and representing a range of states, they share one uncommon characteristic: their youth. The younges...

Does that surprise you?
In a shift of opinion since the 2014 midterms, Americans now consider the Republican Party more extreme than the Democratic Party, a new HuffPost/YouGov poll finds. In the days just after the GOP retook the Senate last November, Americans were ev...

What do you think?
The news that Hillary Clinton used a personal email address to conduct business as Secretary of State touched off a round of speculation last week on whether the controversy could hurt her chances in 2016. "Do you think maybe wrong-email-addr...

+JOE D. Precisely. Who cares. I communicate regularly with some people who have multiple addresses and it's no big deal. Usually it's to separate work from personal things, but sometimes it's also to separate among various activities and related groups of correspondents.

I would like to see Elizabeth Warren show more than a passing interest in governance other than the sheltered life of a US Senator.  If she really wants to change things, then the executive branch is a larger stage and runs the nation.  Every politician should aim as high as the White House when in the Senate.  It is a big deal.  It can happen if she wants it to happen.  And, it doesn't always present itself twice.
