Christie has work to do at home. Christie is not yet ready to be president, though, because he lacks sufficient executive experience. Perhaps the biggest problem President Obama has is a lack of problem-solving experience. Through no fault of his own, Obama was handed a damaged economy, and he
Steve Jobs' impact on the world, and me. Such a statement about any given person is usually hard to back up. But as I have thought about this the past few days since Jobs' death, it's not that hard to defend his place in history.. I was born two years
I think we both know the answer.. For more than a decade, politicians have pandered and promised to bring high-speed broadband to rural parts of America. While they were postulating, the private sector was actually building the infrastructure to carry this technology.. Today we're faced with a similar scenario
I checked with some of my cohorts to get their reaction to the report and they, too, were skeptical about whether these numbers had any semblance of the reality that we see up close and personal. I checked the numbers of our office and while there did not seem to

MILWAUKEE -- In a Milwaukee Brewers clubhouse filled with oversized personalities, the first shot at the rival St. Louis Cardinals going into Game 1 of the NL championship series came from a surprising source: Starting pitcher Zack Greinke, whose bout with social anxiety disorder typically make him one of the least likely players to pop off.
The FBI released its latest crime statistics last week. Even as someone who daily deals with the cases that these statistics are born from, I was actually surprised at the headlines that the report offered. The report stated that the crime rate in our country, from 2009-2010, had experienced a 6% decline. My first reaction was that I wondered if the same people who had prepared the Atlanta Public Schools testing results had also had a part in the math results of this report. A 6% decline just didn’t seem to feel right with everything that I have seen during the last year or so. I actually thought we would have seen an increase.

Everybody needs a guru. Someone you can go to whenever you find yourself stuck on the horns of a moral dilemma. Some climb the mountaintops of Nepal to sit before an old guy wrapped in a bedsheet and listen to him prattle about inner beauty.

What happens to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie now? Will he campaign for the Republican nominee? Will he settle back into New Jersey politics exclusively? Not since William Taft graced the White House in the early 20th century has there been a national political presence like Christie. Larger than life both physically and emotionally, Christie plays the political game like a blitzing middle linebacker: If he zeroes in on you, you’ll feel it.
