Two words to describe GOP's contraceptive stance: more abortions

    Someone explain why Republicans like Don Coram are so hard to find. You’ll have to travel all the way to Montrose, Colo., to find him, unless he’s in the Colorado state Capitol.

    There the state representative recently encountered frustration with fellow Republicans on something you’d think every person of any persuasion would support: fewer unwanted pregnancies among teens, and fewer abortions.

Secret's Doomed Script

    In every episode of "Silicon Valley," the terrific HBO comedy series created by Mike Judge, there is always a moment, rendered utterly deadpan, that both mocks and explains the current, are-we-in-a-bubble-yet state of play in, well, Silicon Valley.

    To hear former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee tell it, there is no Republican presidential candidate better equipped than he is to run against Hillary Clinton - and he has the battle scars to prove it.

    Back in Arkansas, "every time I ever ran for public office, I ran against the Clinton political machine. I ran against their money. I ran against them," Huckabee told a recent gathering of New Hampshire Republicans.

Restoring Faith in Justice

    Last week, Baltimore's chief prosecutor, Marilyn J. Mosby, charged six officers in the death of Freddie Gray. The charges included second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

Race, Class and Neglect

    Every time you're tempted to say that America is moving forward on race - that prejudice is no longer as important as it used to be - along comes an atrocity to puncture your complacency. Almost everyone realizes, I hope, that the Freddie Gray affair wasn't an isolated incident, that it's unique only to the extent that for once there seems to be a real possibility that justice may be done.

A senator's faith -- and humility

    There are few moments of grace in our politics these days, especially where conflicts over religion are concerned. Last week, I witnessed one. Perhaps it was a mere drop in an ocean of suspicion and mistrust, but it was instructive and even encouraging.
