While Europeans Holiday, Americans Toil

It’s a fact: Americans enjoy less vacation time than their European counterparts.  But shorter vacations, longer work weeks and skimpy sick leaves add up—not to greater upward mobility for U.S. workers, but rather a burned-out workforce earning less than preceding generations.

Gore Vidal Sounds Off on Solar Power Caper

Note to public utility companies:  Do not cross Gore Vidal.  What began as a personal nuisance—the shutdown of his newly installed home solar power system by Los Angeles’ water and power provider—has become emblematic of a bigger issue (or two) for the venerable writer, who states his position in no uncertain terms in this interview.

With Friends Like These, Who Needs Judges?

Remember when President Bush promised to fire anyone in the White House involved in the leaking of Valerie Plame’s identity? How far we’ve come. “Scooter” Libby’s commutation is but the latest outrage perpetrated by an administration more concerned with protecting its secrets than the rule of law.
