The guy behind the ban says agencies should defy Congress and study it anyway.
Several parents in Newtown have expressed concern about the long-term effects on young people not necessarily directly impacted by violence, but on the periphery. How has their close proximity to a horrendous event impacted their perception of the world?
I found the president's words on terrorism and ideology confusing and frustrating. He rightly said that Muslim leaders must combat extremist ideology; but Muslim leaders, clerics and non-clerics have already been doing so for years, in mosques and in many other organizations.
