Clinton, Trump Elections Sent Chilling Message to Sexually Abused Women

Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual harassment and assault, as well as a tape in which he admits to groping a model, seem to have triggered something new in US society — an awareness of the magnitude of what women face every day.

Why did it take so long?

One reason is partisan politics. Think about it: Two of the four men who have occupied the Oval Office in the last quarter century were allegedly serial sexual harassers/assaulters.

Bill Clinton was accused of rape by one woman, of exposing himself to another and of groping a third.

Labor Day: Paintings From the Great Depression, and the WPA

(Published originally 9/1/2014)

Here, in honor of Labor Day, is a collection of paintings and prints from the Great Depression. Images from the gorgeous to the grim, all fascinating.

The Depression was characterized by unemployment, homelessness, hunger, bankruptcies, home foreclosures, dust, drought, and inequality in the distribution of wealth. And the infrastructure was crumbling. Sound familiar?

Drug Testing Welfare: Giving Those in Need the Finger, Not a Helping Hand

It’s tough to get congressional Republicans on the same page these days. They just can’t seem to agree on how many millions of Americans they should kick off health care, nor how much of a tax break to give to the rich. Fortunately, there are some smaller issues they can still unite around … like sticking it to poor people by allowing states to waste millions of dollars testing them for drugs.
