In the wake of the Los Angeles riots more than 20 years ago, Congress created an anti-poverty experiment called Moving to Opportunity. It gave vouchers to help poor families move to better neighborhoods and awarded them on a random basis, so researchers could study the effects.

Today, Mike Huckabee jumps in again, one day after Carly Fiorina joined the GOP contest and after Sen. Don Quixote, er, Bernie Sanders, announced he's taking on presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.

Mrs. Clinton herself is back in Las Vegas today for another of her patented patent citizen roundtables, this one on immigration. (Watch the Huckabee kickoff from Hope, Arkansas on C-SPAN at 11a.m. and the Clinton Vegas event at 5:45p.m., both Eastern Time.)

Perhaps more importantly, though, a new Wall Street Journal / NBC News Poll is out. Most polls this early merely reflect name recognition. But this one provides revealing insights to the evolving thinking of Republicans, Democrats and the most important group of all come fall 2016, independents.

This is an opportunity for the GOP...if they can simply find a way to grasp it.

Democrats have utterly failed in achieving upward economic mobility for the poor. Can conservatives do better?

Joss Whedon—the director of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron—is generally considered to be a friend of both nerds and women. This is, after all, the guy who created Buffy the Vampire Sla

+Chuck Potchen Depends how they do it. Bear in mind they're in a near-vacuum...there may be some MHD tricks the guys working on fusion know about. 

One good thing about an interplanetary ship is: you can build it in LEO (or higher) and boost it up there in pieces. That's how we got ISS built.

I love the anger over the Avengers, and Black Widow. It really shows the idiocy of our commentary these days. 
Feminist critics who are going after Joss Whedon for giving Natasha Romanoff a story line about her fertility miss the measure of the character's heroism.

They're not blind, they just don't feel the rules apply to them. And since no one has ever held them accountable, they're right.....
