The simple reality remains. As long as Republicans run the state of Ohio, there will always be the death penalty. No matter what logic or cost analysis you show them, the party that hates abortion loves the death penalty.

Pope Francis said Catholics should practice “responsible parenthood,” not just having all the children they can.

This week's column. Don't be a hater! Actually, after a week of debating this, I am more confident than ever that justice was denied. When government kills an unarmed man on a city street, there needs to be a trial just to ensure that the shooting was aboveboard and to assure the people the government is not killing people and then covering it up. There was enough reasonable doubt that trying this case in a secret grand jury proceeding with a friendly prosecutor is anti-American and a threat to liberty. I stand my ground on this issue.
Anyone who was surprised by the lack of an indictment in the Ferguson, Missouri, police shooting has not been paying attention.When t...

Tomorrow, scientists at Yale are going to announce they have located an ancient solar system, dating back to the dawn of the galaxy, which appears to be a miniature version of the inner planets in our own solar system.

The old, Sun-like star, named Kepler-444, has five orbiting planets with sizes between those of Mercury and Venus. Kepler-444 formed 11.2 billion years ago, when the universe was less than 20 percent of its current age. This makes Kepler-444 the oldest known system of terrestrial-sized planets. The Kepler-444 system was already older than our own solar system is today when our Sun and planets were born.

Fascinating. If life evolved there and has survived to this day, they could be almost 7 billion years more advanced than we are. Think about that.
