    In February 2016, then N.C. Sen. Bob Rucho and Rep. David Lewis held the first public hearing of the newly formed Joint Select Committee on Congressional Redistricting. Earlier that month, a federal court had struck down North Carolina’s congressional map because of racial gerrymandering, and the committee was tasked with redrawing the districts. To that end, the public was invited to submit comments on the process.

    For a party that champions a “pro-life” agenda, the GOP routinely turns its back on children once they leave the womb. The question isn’t just about abortion rights; it’s about making sure that all children have access to a quality life, growing up safe, healthy and well-educated.

    WASHINGTON — During World War I, chemist James Conant was deeply involved in research on what was considered the worst imaginable weapon: poison gas. During World War II, as a science adviser to President Franklin Roosevelt, Conant was so central to the development of the atomic bomb that he was at Alamogordo on July 16, 1945.

    Donald Trump just couldn’t stand it. The man, a new and already infamous book characterizes as having little interest in the U.S. Constitution he swore to uphold, didn’t get it – how he somehow won the presidency despite his opponent, Hillary Clinton, besting him by three million votes.

    A consistent increase in life expectancy is one of society’s bedrock measures of progress.

The average life expectancy of an American has increased about 30 years since 1900.

    Like millions of people around the world, I was reassured to learn that Donald Trump is a “Very Stable Genius.” You see, if he weren’t — if he were instead an erratic, vindictive, uninformed, lazy, would-be tyrant — we might be in real trouble.

    The Trump administration’s plan to sharply expand offshore oil and gas drilling in U.S.-controlled waters in 47 leased sites off the West and East Coasts — including six off California — might yield yet another pitched battle between the Golden State and the federal government.

    As I sit here on pins and needles — PINS AND NEEDLES Y’ALL! — awaiting the release of Donald Trump’s nominations for the “most dishonest and corrupt news media awards” he just invented in his big orange noggin, I imagine this is how Meryl Streep feels every year.
