Yes, at least a dozen colleges and universities told the NCAA they planned to sponsor varsity women's triathlon. The pledge was one reason the NCAA adopted triathlon as a new sport. But only one of those schools told me it actually would do so. My latest for The New York Times.
The N.C.A.A. in January adopted women’s triathlon as an “emerging sport,” giving it a decade to attract at least 40 varsity teams, but so far, universities’ commitment has been lacking.

It's more complicated than you might think.
Health care experts say there’s still a huge need for free clinics despite the surge in insured populations. So why are some clinics closing?

The FBI has sort of changed their racial profiling guidelines, but they can basically still spy on Muslims for no reason. This + more news in #TheDailyFix: http://bit.ly/QahCIA

The conservatives really need to take a look at how these countries are helping their kids.
