[quote]but what if it's a cultural gap? how can a public body "ensure that gap is narrowed" without changing the culture? [/quote] I agree the problem is largely cultural but I do think something can be done...both internal and external. And i think we better figure something out, or whole th...

141,000:11,000 Jesus H. Christ. I wish we'd have an honest conversation about this....but we won't. We'll continue to pretend illegals crossing the border and ISIS (who has killed fewer Americans than falling coconuts since 9/11) are our biggest problem. Whoever's "fault" it is really doesn...

[quote]My hunch is that the Trump beat down on Tuesday night may have served as an official notice that the predicted fall and decline of one Donald J. Trump was not inevitable after all.
