You know what I really resent? I resent it when someone tells me I should vote for, or support, or give a pass to someone because it will be a “historic moment.” [Read More]
Commentary: For the Trump family, Daddy Donald knows best Commentary: For the Trump family, Daddy Donald knows best

There is no way to avoid sounding like a Trump supporter with this column. I’ve already been accused of going over to the dark side by defending The Donald against accusations that he wanted to imprison women who had abortions and that he cheered on a campaign manager prone to domestic violence.

The first time I felt it, I was a first-year law student desperately trying to figure out why she was getting bottom-basement grades when she’d been on the honor roll most of her pampered life. It was three quarters into a difficult academic year, and I was almost ready to call it quits. [Read More]
Commentary: Donald Trump's bad, but he's no woman-beater Commentary: Donald Trump's bad, but he's no woman-beater

It’s no secret I detest Donald Trump. I don’t particularly hate the man himself, because it takes too much energy and effort to become enraged at people I don’t know personally and will likely never meet when there are more than enough humans in my immediate orbit who fit the bill. [Read More]

It’s been a long time since I’ve written about the 2006 version of the Scottsboro Nine. About a decade ago, I had occasion to knock out a column about them every few months, both during and after the investigation. The case, like Nosferatu, refused to die. [Read More]

Life is unpredictable. Just ask Hillary Clinton. I mean, you wake up Tuesday morning planning to give a big electoral hug to Michigan, and you go to bed not caring if arsenic starts flowing through the tap water in Flint. You just never know how the day is going to pan out, so to speak. [Read More]
Commentary: Campaign shows we remain on the 'Eve of Destruction' Commentary: Campaign shows we remain on the 'Eve of Destruction'

I woke up on Wednesday morning with a song going through my head: “The Eve of Destruction.” It bounced around in the echo chamber between my ears as I brushed and flossed, as I ironed my blouse, as I coaxed my hair into a semblance of order. [Read More]

Despite a few recent polls that suggest most Americans don’t really care about the Oscars, I think we secretly do. It may not seem hip to have an opinion about who gets to “thank the academy” and a hundred thousand minor acquaintances before the music drowns them out. [Read More]
Commentary: Obama's disgraceful decision to skip Scalia funeral Commentary: Obama's disgraceful decision to skip Scalia funeral
