REVIEW: ‘12 Years a Slave’ – a painful disturbing reminder of the horrors of the past

I think it is possible to write a review of 12 Years a Slave and focus solely on its merits as a film, whether it will win Oscars, and how it could be already a classic. I think that would easily elide what the film and what films like it do to and do for […]

I kept wondering why she hadn’t been able to take out her enemies the Graysons in the first few episodes. But then […]

Means-testing is not a route Medicare should take

Despite the current respite from the government shutdown and near default, we aren’t really much closer to a real budget deal.
