Stuff costs money: Tuition suit could stiff Az's whole university system

Arizona's conservatives have blown up the collectivist model of tax funding in favor of a user-pays model for higher education. Now they don't want the user to pay, either. Ideology comes with a cost because eventually it escapes the court of public opinion – or the court of law – and runs headlong into reality.... Read more»

The dangers of snakes and tobacco

Some estimates put the annual number of humans bit by venomous snakes at 5.4 million, resulting in perhaps 125,000 deaths.

There're two sides to every sign

Driving west on Valencia Road toward the casinos, I'm always amused by the many billboards announcing how much farther away they are. Each billboard seems so overtly promissory that all visitors will win and win big. This, of course, has often left me wondering: what do the other sides of the billboards advertise, for the gamblers who are returning to reality from their fleecings? I always forget to look....

The Chicago 2016 campaign delivered the news: the city council had backed financial guarantees for the city’s Olympic bid by a vote of 49-0 — as if it was a great victory on the gridiron.

Why is this land still consuming our blood and treasure all these years after 9/11?... Read more»

Malaysian model drinks beer, asks to be caned

It's a sordid tale with the goods to placate the gods of news. A model. Booze. Religion. Caning (yes, being beaten repeatedly by a rattan stick). An impassioned appeal by human rights advocates. A willing sacrifice. Here's the skinny:... Read more»
