HOPEDALE, La. (AP) -- Fisherman Randy Slavich drags a clunky metal net through an underwater oyster bed in Lake Machias, a brackish body opening into the Gulf of Mexico. For generations, this has been a bountiful lake for harvesting oysters, long before millions of gallons of oil spilled off Louisiana's coast in 2010....

50 years after Freedom Summer, America needs a year of action 1.7.2014 Washington Post: Op-Eds
Shortly after 11 p.m. on June 24, the media declared six-term Republican Senator Thad Cochran the winner of Mississippi’s hard-fought Republican runoff primary. The reason, the pundits quickly concluded, was an unprecedented surge in black Democrats — some 13,000 or more — crossing over to support Cochran over his virulently anti-government tea party opponent, Chris McDaniel. “It should send a message,” retired school principal Ned Tolliver said. “It shows that we have the power to elect who we want to elect when the time is ...

Poverty Requires Disaster Relief 10.12.2012 American Prospect
“I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” Ronald Reagan’s famous “nine most terrifying words in the English language” continue to serve as fodder for conservatives and to infuriate progressives. Reagan’s mocking line kicked off a wave of anti-state backlash that conservatives continue to ride, and any long-range plan for rehabilitating the progressive agenda has to contend with the stigma that surrounds government aid. But Reagan wasn’t announcing cuts in federal aid—quite the opposite. He was inoculating himself against criticism from conservatives for doling it out. Reagan was about to ask for a huge package of drought relief to farmers, including price-support loans for the entire season’s grain crop, which he said was essential for a “compassionate and responsible” government.
