Finding new limits

TROY — Limits exist to be tested — and eventually surpassed.That’s how Jim Stubbs feels about them, at least.And Stubbs pushes those personal limits by competing as a triathlon athlete, a race that is the ultimate test of physical and mental endurance involving marathon-level swimming, biking and running. He doesn’t do it for the recognition or to beat other people, though — although getting to travel, see and compete on different courses is...

The Blade on Common Core:Republican lawmakers in the Statehouse continue to make election-year hay from a bill that would repeal the Common Core education standards in Ohio. The measure’s sponsors at least have shown enough respect for Ohio students to remove a provision that would have allowed the teaching of creationism — that is, religion in the guise of science — in the state’s public schools.But the bill before the state Hous...

Commercials that make me want to NOT buy their product

My friend Rex prefaces all of his disquieting statements (which is to say, all of his statements) with the phrase, “I don’t mean this bad, but…” You’ve heard of pre-paid phone cards and pre-arranged marriages? This is sort of like a pre-confession; he’s asking for absolution in advance. If history is any indicator, when Rex begins, “I don’t mean this bad” you are about to hear a criticism that is equal parts hilarious and horrifying.

Government openness is important

One of the fundamental lessons of the 9/11 tragedy was that our government carried a share of blame for the failure to stop the attacks. Not because it was asleep at the switch or ignorant of the dangers that Al Qaeda posed, but because the agencies charged with our safety did not share what they knew, either up and down the chain of command or with each other. The attacks were preventable with shared information.

Obama’s immigration red line

No one will ever mistake President Barack Obama for Lyndon Johnson, the master legislator as president. He doesn’t really do congressional schmoozing or arm-twisting. Compromise and deal-cutting are beneath him. Once he lost the Democratic supermajorities of 2009-2010 and the power to push things through Congress by sheer brute force, his legislating essentially came to an end.So perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise that even the niceties of unilateral lawmaking are beyon...
