Nation

Responses remind him of his dad's birther conspiracy, "s**thole countries" dig at black nations — and Rep. Steve King.
America is about aspiring to be better. Trump is clawing that aspiration out of the nation's soul.
And that, my friends, should you care to know, is what I am for. It's a bit like when a pig and chicken were talking about
Fifteen years have passed quickly, but the memory of September 11th is still as close as yesterday. It was a catastrophically sad and devastating day to watch, live, and remember. Many people that lived through it, would rather not talk about what they saw or the feelings felt.
Donald Trump trumpets himself as a great businessman. There are parts of the voting public that assume his self-declared business acumen can naturally translate to his success as president. Not so fast: Our nation's purpose and methods of operation are not the same as a business
Unpaid family members in the United States provide more than $470 billion worth of at-home care every year. Among these caregivers are the families of America's wounded warriors.
To put it a different way: "Dang these kids today." Anyway, as usual the comments from people proposing words for the banished list were pretty amusing at times.
The fact is -- given a bit of clear thinking unencumbered by all of the noise -- none of the issues perpetuating our current national crisis are going to be solved by the screaming children in the room so why join them as it will only serve to hamper much needed solution.
Andy remains, in the hearts of those who knew and worked with him at WBCN-FM, and later at The Nation, Village Voice, New York Review of Books and elsewhere, as we miss and remember gutsy and radical and kind and brilliant Andy.
I am told that if a small group of American Muslims drawn from both the Sunni and Shia strands of Islam, and from different ethnicities come together to discuss solutions they will come up with ideas that can lead to breakthroughs.
The written word has been a constant in most of Jewish history; it cannot not have had an impact on that history, of which rising from the ashes like a phoenix time and again is a signal achievement.
Looking at the Syrian crisis now, we may not, humanly, be able to see a solution. That's why we need to pray. Prayer is so powerful. All our prayers count. Your prayer may be the one that makes the difference.
Read and consider a commentary written and recited by Ben Stein on CBS Sunday Morning following The White House's decision to call this year's Christmas tree a "Holiday Tree."
Acton Public Library is allowing patrons to pay off their book fines in food donated to The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries, an incredible organization in its own right that does a lot of good for needy families living on the Connecticut shoreline.
I am told America will play a huge role in the evolution of mankind. That from America will come many of the ideas and initiatives that will create a better world and will help unify countries. The angels tell me America is supposed to be a beacon of hope for the world.
Outrageous. And all for what? Because a small faction of snot-nosed kids within the Republican Party cannot accept the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections and the passage of the Affordable Care Act.
I know that I and others have been given near death experiences so we can share our experience and make people understand that death is not to be feared and that Heaven is real.
Our fear is selfish and narcissistic. It is imperative we give thanks -- not for what we have accumulated, but for what we can offer, what we can leave, as a truly generous and necessary gift for those who will follow in the path we walk, together, this season.
Each time I land in America it's as if a gate to the new world opens. God and angels have told me that America is the gateway to humanity's future. It is where the choices that will determine mankind's future will be made.
