The lakeside camp was built on the notion that person-to-person contact would cement relationships, which would in turn slowly lead to broader societal change. Peace has been elusive, but former campers have taken on a bevy of projects aimed at making...

Why did the police occupy Ferguson and not to Bunkerville? Why "riots" in Ferguson and "patriots" in Bunkerville? There was some looting on Sunday night--not a full-scale, weapons-drawn confrontation with federal officers. But some televisions were stolen.

Everything one could say about the narcissism of Israel and its most rabid defenders is right there in this post. Morality or even simple logic are totally absent.

The most important political lesson of the Salaita case is this: criticizing the crimes of the Israeli state is the new McCarthyism. Steven Salaita is being fired because, much like suspected Communist sympathy during the Cold War, support for Palestine..

DIY treehouses tend to, well, look it. That's not the case for this incredible home in Seattle, Washington, featured in the video above. It is closer to being a mini-mansion in the tree. Perhaps we need a new term for a structure like this?

After watching four hours of its programming and even despite my own lack of religious belief, I find it hard to imagine that even a casual nonbeliever would tune in, let alone someone on the fence about the existence of a higher power.

There were leftover tortillas in my house last week, quickly going stale. There were tomatillos in the market. For a sometime Texan, this means just one thing: chilaquiles. OK, let me back up.

I wrote about the important distinction between criticism of Israel and anti-Semitism*. People like to conflate the two of them, but the truth is, neither anti-Zionism nor, certainly, being critical of Israel is inherently anti-Semitic.
