Dereliction of Duty in Detroit

I've had my eye on Detroit's bankruptcy proceedings because it is indicative of what's to come for a lot of cities.  How Detroit deals with its bankruptcy could also set a precedent for other cities forced to deal with the decisions of bankruptcy, satisfying pensions and debtors.  Unfortunately, Detroit's Emergency Manager Kevin Orr is shirking his responsibilities to the city and creditors by not making the hard choices to put Detroit on sound financial footing.

Conservative and Single: The Odds are Good, But the Goods are Odd

When I moved to DC in 1999 for my first job in the conservative movement I didn’t think much about finding a boyfriend or husband. I was 21 and just out of college.
