Hardliners desperately seeking Satan

    Chances of war with Iran, says career Middle East journalist Barbara Slavin, went down “a gazillion” with the framework for a nuclear agreement.

    Ah, fudge.

    Never fear. Or fear. Hardliners in Congress will do their very best to change the percentages.

Farming Moves North With the Temperatures

    Before there was a California, New England fed itself. Somehow. The soil was lousy, the climate cold and the diet limited (lots of cabbage, no avocados). At least there was plenty of water.

Making Sense of Water

    Almost every number used to analyze California's drought can be debated, but this can be safely said: No level of restrictions on residential use can solve the problem. The solution lies with agriculture, which consumes more than its fair share.

Is History Finally On Hillary's Side?

    That was quick. Strike up "Happy Days Are Here Again" and cue the balloon drop. Better yet, Democrats could skip the whole primaries-and-convention thing and let Hillary Clinton get to work on picking a running mate.
