The Trouble With "Optics" 11.7.2014 American Prospect
I've been writing about politics for a long time, and it's a tribute to the dynamism of our glorious democracy that every time I think that things couldn't get any stupider, I'm proven wrong yet again. While we face a genuine humanitarian and policy crisis on our southern border, with thousands of children making their way across hundreds of miles to wind up in the arms of the Border Patrol, the news media allowed Republicans to turn the focus to the deeply important question of whether or not President Obama would travel there to mount a photo op.

Henry Cuellar (D-Tex.) said earlier Wednesday that Obama looked "aloof" by coming within a few hundred miles of the border without actually going ...

Ex-New Orleans mayor given 10-year sentence 10.7.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
New Orleans • When Ray Nagin was elected mayor in 2002, there was real hope that he was a break from the city’s sleazy past. Three years later, with his city awash in foul water and rotting corpses, he became something of a national cult hero, raging against the slow, incompetent federal response to his crippled city’s plight. “Excuse my French — everybody in America — but I am pissed,” he shouted during a radio appearance three days after Hurricane Katrina swamped the Crescent City. In the end...
