An insane woman was madly swinging her pocketbook at strangers on the street. No one tried to shame or reason with her.
There are regions where economic stress coexists with a beloved way of life. It can be hard to make a living in parts of the rural West, northern New England and the South. But people stay put in these places for reasons other than the almighty dollar. They include community, tradition and quality of life.
President Mike Pence. The words do not trip lightly off the tongue.
The movie "Dunkirk" recounts an astounding story of courage and self-sacrifice, without which Hitler might have won World War II. One can draw a straight line from Britain's heroic solidarity in the war to the welfare state that emerged in peacetime.
The boarding process for a recent flight required going up a modest set of stairs. Greatly slowing it all was a woman carrying at least 80 more pounds than were optimal. Every step was a labored exertion.
Anthony Scaramucci is two things Jeff Sessions is not. One, he is a New Yorker. Two, he is a New Yorker who made a bundle in finance.
Consider what got Martin Shkreli in trouble with the law.
Barack Obama much annoyed many of his critics when he noted less-than-stellar moments in American history during his trips abroad. They called it Obama's apology tour.
Lend me your ears. You'll be glad. Today's subject is the controversial production of "Julius Caesar" in which a Donald Trump-like figure gets assassinated. Given today's angry political climate, the costuming showed poor taste at the very least. Delta Air Lines and Bank of America withdrew their sponsorship, and who could blame them?
Travis Kalanick helped found and build Uber into a corporate giant worth more than Ford Motor Co. On Tuesday, Uber's board effectively fired Kalanick.
Thing about Donald Trump is he doesn't have the numbers.
America is not a very happy place, and it is getting less so.
Familiar rituals followed the terrorist bombing at the arena in Manchester, England. Flowers piled up near the site of carnage. Reporters plumbed every line of the attacker's profile, speculating on what may have inspired his vile act. Rallies called for solidarity and a rejection of "hate."
"Rising to the bait" is a fishing term.
Boy, wouldn't it be great to get that mentally unstable thug out of the Oval Office?
There was a time when a phrase typed by the mighty fingers of Donald Trump would shock world leaders, swing markets and send public opinion into convulsions. But those awesome powers have shrunk considerably since Election Day. Responses that once quaked with "What does this mean for the planet?" have relaxed into "Oh, it's him again."
Reports that Barack Obama will receive $400,000 for a speech at a Wall Street health conference have produced some violent finger-wagging by populists on the left.
Never mind the wall that President Trump said Mexico must pay for but then Congress must pay for; either that or much of the working class loses its health coverage. Oh, he's dropped that? Well, it made for a lively 24 hours.
News flash: The Obama-era fuel-economy standards would add $875 to the average price of a new vehicle. But proposed border taxes or other tariffs on Mexican imports would add $2,000. President Donald Trump wants a weaker mandate on mileage, and he also wants the tariffs.
President Trump didn't exactly boot Steve Bannon from his ruling circle of relatives and Wall Street hotshots he might like to have as relatives.
