Ellen Goodman: A Lousy Way to Win Back Congress

I would have preferred the Democrats to end up ascendant in November based on the strength of their ideas, but if it takes Mark Foley to bring down the GOP house, so be it.

Ellen Goodman: Horror or Hope in Vegetative Patient Study?

British researchers reported that a totally unresponsive 23-year-old woman showed signs of awareness on a brain-imaging test. What we can’t know, however, is whether someone actually wants to keep living like that.
