If really want to know Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King is one of the most revered leaders of the 20th century. He was never elected to public office and never led an army, but his presence, force of character, and most of all, the compelling nature of his arguments, have given him a place amongst those who helped define who we are today. However, his memory has become so iconic, and so depersonalized that much of who he was doesn’t make it into the narrative. We

Can we grow ourselves out of a deficit?

It’s something economists talk about in low whispers. Perhaps because they don’t think anyone would believe them. But, what’s getting their attention and prompting these hushed conversations is the prospect that our nation’s deficit may in just a few years, drop significantly, or better yet, all but disappear.

A West Virginia Jed Clampett

In 1890 my great grandfather farmed 120 acres along the Ohio River, in Tyler County, West Virginia near a town called Sisterville. He once told my dad that he was 44 years old before he had ever seen $100 in one place. However, 1890 was also the start of the great West Virginia oil boom.

Don’t underestimate Ken Cucinelli

To Virginia Democrats, the likely Republican nominee for Governor, Ken Cucinelli seems so easy to beat that some, no doubt, are already planning what to wear to Terry McAuliffe’s, the likely Democratic nominee’s, inaugural.

It’s understandable. Cucinelli has managed to position himself so far to the right, and take so many controversial stands, that winning statewide, by some, is seen as nearly impossible. But, that would be
