    On International Worker’s Day: Rights and Lack Thereof

    When you have an office job, it’s easy to gripe about feeling demoralized or disengaged at work, about lack of advancement opportunities, office politics, aging desk furniture or fluorescent lighting, but when you put things in perspective, as my wise high school calculus teacher once told me, “it could always be worse.” And in America […]

    Punching for Jesus: Will God Take Sides in the “Fight of the Century”?

    Boxing and religion have often intersected in dramatic fashion, far beyond the thanks winning fighters routinely give to God. Perhaps the former Cassius Clay provided the most famous incidence of this in the mid-1960s when opponents, journalists, politicians and the public generally mistook accepting his name change as endorsement of his adopted strain of Islam.

    View all episodes in the Cartoon History of Humanism series. Anthony Collins and the Bad Boys of English Deism The United States is the country that deism made, and if the nation’s founding fathers strike us as an improbable rag-tag collection of generals, writers, brewers, silversmiths, and planters, that is altogether appropriate for a revolution […]

    Rules Are for Schmucks: Rule 11 and the Same-Sex Marriage Case

    Lawyers live in fear of an edict called “Rule 11.” When a lawyer presents a pleading or brief to a court, the goal is to make the client’s argument as persuasively as possible. What Rule 11 says, though, is that you cannot get carried away and tell the court things that are not true. If […]

    The Reason Lobby

    Washington, DC, is infamous for its lobbyists. Typically, when people think of lobbyists, they picture soulless former government officials who have gone over to private industry in order to make some big money trading on their expertise and connections. This isn’t far from the truth, although the depiction of lobbyists in movies such as Thank […]
