COMMON CORE IS MAKING OUR CHILDREN DUMBER And that isn't just idle speculation. The data is in and it's ugly and shows no signs of turning around. This column lays it out. We shall discuss today.
JULIAN ASSANGE IS IN CUSTODY IN THE UK After being dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy where he has been living since 2012. Ecuador grew tired of his antics apparently and pulled his asylum and the UK police nabbed Assange this morning.

GILLETTE JUMPS INTO THE FRAY AGAIN This time by featuring an obese model in a bikini to sell women's razors. The internet was not kind. Although I think we should not use shame to encourage people to live a healthier lifestyle, I also don't agree with this move to glamorize obesity when we know it is now the biggest medical issue we face in the US.
