Unwinding after a day of regulatory analysis and political opining, I often read true crime novels.

A compelling one I just started is In He Killed Them All by Fox News Channel host Jeanine Pirro. Pirro’s book engagingly and brilliantly details her experiences trying to bring suspected murderer Robert Durst to justice...

LI #20 Tuberculosis

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have done neither, lacking the power to stem the flow of essentially unimpeded immigration into the U.S. by unaccompanied minors.

Judicial Watch recently reviewed the records generated by that agency during the past few years, and the findings were truly sickening.
