DANIELS: The GOP's Acting-the-Fool Dynamic

Among the formal definitions for "acting the fool" are: one who is deficient in judgment, sense or understanding. Perhaps the dictionaries should add a new one: today's Republican Party.

Voters are tired of income inequality being acknowledged with nothing being done about it.

MARIAN WRIGHT EDELMAN: Make Me a Woman

One of my sheroes is Sojourner Truth. A brilliant but illiterate woman, she was a great orator and powerful presence who possessed great courage and determination. I often wear a pendant with her image and words: "If women want any ...
