After enjoying gloriously warm and sunny weather during my northern European “apology tour”, I was astonished return and find California’s mega-drought seemingly ended with record rainfall.

San Diegans woke up Monday after record-breaking storms brought up to four inches of rain in one community and more than an inch in many others.

During my family’s visit of Berlin, Germany yesterday, an American president was prominently featured as part of the tour we took.

Our guide spoke glowingly of a speech that he heard, and one which still resonates with him to this day.

After California became the epicenter of a measles outbreak earlier this year, the state’s legislature proposed a tough, new bill making vaccinations for children attending public school mandatory (with few exceptions.)

Governor Jerry Brown just signed that bill into law.

Mark Twain once wrote that “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

In the age of the internet, that saying should be updated to “three times around the world”, as is evidenced by the story behind the resignation of a British scientist.

One one hand, it is comforting to know President Obama can target the enemy and use American resources to counter it.

On the other hand, it is very disturbing when that enemy is . . . climate change.

Obama is acting upon his delusion that the biggest global security threats involve weather patterns...

As summer officially opens, battle lines are being drawn in the war against “cultural appropriation”.

This particular engagement pits Sioux Indians against a counter-cultural group that loves Native Americans a little too much.

The federal government is regulating the American meal, again.

This time, the target is trans-fat!

The Obama administration is ordering food companies to phase out the artery-clogging trans fats that can lead to heart disease, the country’s leading cause of death.
