E vents have devised this sorry legacy: Bill Clinton will be recalled, with mocking irony, as the president who introduced the legal wink of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” to public policy. It seemed a clever ploy back in 1993, when the new president was dodging intense political cross fire over gays in the military. Gays will not be allowed to serve in the military, Clinton decided. But — – wink! —– we’ll look the other way. When the president attempts to cover his own behavior with an equivalent version of hypocrisy before the law, it injures all of us and creates a swamp of impossible dilemmas for the nation. Shall we give him an official pass to perjure himself on questions about his sex life? Or is Congress about to impeach a president for mere sexual infidelity?

In the past week, that number has skyrocketed to nearly 200,000, thanks to the success of Josh Wardle’s popular word game. Cravotta tells Rolling Stone that initially he was perplexed by the increase … [Read more...] about Creator of Original Wordle App Donates Proceeds to Charity
F ROM JONESBORO, ARKANSAS, TO SPRINGFIELD, OREGON, the serial carnage in American schoolyards has generated the predictable outrage aimed at rap music and devil teenagers. Why are kids shooting each other, their parents and teachers? Americans always enjoy a lusty discussion of what’s wrong with the younger generation. Plus, it lets everyone avoid the politically explosive question of what’s wrong with the guns. While talk shows and right-wing preachers obsess about the moral depravity of youth culture, the usual political adversaries are lining up for yet another long-running congressional struggle over various gun-control measures. The National Rifle Association knows that people are upset by the spectacle of gun-toting students and hopes to soften its image with Charlton Heston as its new president. Meanwhile, Handgun Control Inc., the leading advocacy group of reformers, unveils a new grab bag of modest legislative ideas for reducing the bloodshed, such as mandatory trigger … [Read more...] about Will the Smart Gun Save Lives?
