Lessons from Patient Zero

    Monica Lewinsky is trying to make lemonade out of 16-year-old lemons. Good for her, and good, ultimately, for us.

    Not so good, of course, for Hillary Clinton's nascent presidential campaign, but not fatal either. Lewinsky's decision to re-emerge as a public figure, this time committed to alleviating the scourge of cyber-bullying, is awkward.

Clinton Detractor Ignores Historical Facts

    By hard pundit law, nonstop media coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign begins on the morning after the 2014 congressional elections -- approximately 18 months before normal Americans want to hear about it.

    The story of Brittany Maynard has revived the debate over Oregon's Death with Dignity Act. The law lets terminally ill patients end their lives with the aid of a doctor. That Maynard is a pretty 29-year-old newlywed using her personal tragedy to broaden support for such laws provokes and rankles foes of physician-assisted suicide.
