Around 10 percent of Egypt’s population belong to the Coptic faith, making them the largest Christian minority in the Middle East. But they have become targets of violence since the revolution three years ago. With elections scheduled for May and the struggle between the Egyptian military and Islamists continuing, many Copts abroad are deeply worried about the future of their ancient church. VOA religion correspondent Jerome Socolovsky visited a...

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s much-questioned decision to disband the Moreland Commission has scuttled an inquiry into the income of legislators like Sheldon Silver who also have other jobs.

My affection and respect for John Mansfield ran deep. And with good reason.

I first encountered John in my first year of law school when John took over part of a torts course for an ill faculty member. I got to know John personally while I was working for James Chadbourn as a research assistant. I became accustomed to dropping by John's office to chat. Not once did John say he was too busy to talk. We often talked at length – about what I know not.

In the years following my graduation from Harvard Law school I wandered around the country but I managed to keep in touch with John now and then. When I moved back East, I saw him more frequently. Not once did he say he was too busy to see me. John was unfailingly generous with his time.

John, of course, was brilliant as well as generous. He needled me mercilessly more than once for some ridiculous thought I had. But I never minded that he did that – because I knew he was a good soul. And he was always good company.

I will miss John immensely.

Seymour Hersh accuses Turkey and Erdogan of staging the gas attack in Syria in an effort to draw the American government and Obama into an air attack against the Syrian government. Could it be that Hersh's story is true?
