Like nearly 25 million other Syrians, one cannot help but feel stunned and exasperated by the events engulfing our country.  How did we get here? How can a country long associated with “stability” suddenly unravel and enter what seems to most like a black hole? Things could not look more differently back in November 2000.

The small North Dakota town of Cooperstown has been forever changed by its first murder in 80 years – a brutal decapitation-killing carried out by a racist, a state’s attorney says. “There are doors locked now that weren’t locked before, said Marina Spahr, the assistant state’s attorney for Griggs County, the Jamestown Sun reported Thursday.

Men’s Rights Activists Disdain Men’s Sacrifice in Colorado Shooting
For most Americans, the recent mass murder in Aurora, Colo., was an unspeakable human tragedy; if the story had any political dimension at all, it was guns and gun control (or the lack thereof).

Habitable Worlds More Like Our Own
Gliese 581 is an utterly maddening star, one that continues to tantalize us with potential habitability. The case of Gl 581g, examined here yesterday, is only the latest wrinkle, but it’s in some ways the most frustrating. We’re studying planets we cannot actually see, inferring their presence through the tiniest of variations in starlight caused by the planets’ gravitational effect on their star.

Facing An Emergency, We’re Still Asking, “Where’s the Beef?”
To understand how utterly broken our society is, how hostile to sacrifice we are, and how willfully ignorant we have become, you need only look at the historic drought hammering the heartland -- and how our elected officials are responding to that cataclysm.   As you likely know from this arid summer, America is suffering through the worst drought since 1950.
