Christmas is a celebration of “peace on Earth, goodwill toward men”, and Santa Claus is famed for spreading joy to children throughout the world.

Obamacare is ending the year on a very low note. Two states, both deep blue in their politics, are unhappy with the quality of the websites designed for the healthcare insurance exchanges.  Shockingly, they have opted to take a very free market approach to the problem.

I have been accumulating the list of universities rejecting the anti-Israel academic boycott passed by the American Studies Association and two smaller groups.

I cautioned against the media assumption that the ruling would survive: The judge issued a preliminary injunction, but stayed his decision pending appeal. While many people are taking the…
