Wednesday’s baseball shooting left several injured and one dead.

In things I never thought I’d say, I must agree with both President Trump and Sen. McCaskill — unity, not division should be the goal at this day’s end.

It’s impossible to ignore the toxic political polarization or that as Professor Jacobson discussed...

Regular readers are familiar with my disdain for Trump, having been a Never Trumper prior to the election. However, once he was elected, Trump became my president because that’s just how life works. (My thoughts on that here.)

Hello, dear readers. I’ve been writing at this site and others for years under the pen name of Aleister.

I’ve decided to drop the moniker and write under my real name, Mike LaChance. The decision didn’t come lightly but I no longer see the need to work anonymously.

I graduated from Emerson College...

As privileged women around the country don Soviet red and abdicate their responsibilities for their Day Without Women, the women of Legal Insurrection are hard at work. In fact, every woman I know — my friends, my sister, my mom, my cousins, my aunts, and in-laws are all working today.

Pepperdine Law Professor Paul Caron, also known as TaxProf at the TaxProf blog, started daily coverage of the IRS scandal(s) several years ago.

The College Fix has some good background on the endeavor.

TaxProf probably didn’t think it would last this long. But once you start to cover something daily, it’s hard to stop.
