Greece Finally Takes a Hard Line… Against Its Athletes?

Voula Papachristou

I can’t seem to figure out the Greek culture. Not a week goes by without fresh news headlines sounding the alarm on the country’s worsening debt crisis. By now, we all know that their government spent like crazy for decades on unsustainable public sector wages, early retirement packages loaded with benefits, and massive infrastructure. Their…

Romney’s Challenge: Convincing the Electorate That They’re Not Children

A couple of weeks ago, my family and I attended a barbeque. It was thrown by some friends of ours who are pretty well-off financially, and they hosted it at their large house that backs up to a lake. Everyone seemed to have a good time, but on the trip home, something that my seven…

Andrew Breitbart: New Media’s Fearless Warrior

I was shocked and saddened Thursday morning when I read of the untimely passing of Andrew Breitbart. The New Media generation has lost perhaps its most courageous fighter. And let’s make no mistake about it… he was a fighter. Once a reluctant conservative, Breitbart became a vocal defender against injustices dealt to the conservative movement….

Every six months or so, my wife and I get into an animated discussion over my stubborn reluctance to buy a video game system for our children. Her case always comes with a bullet list of arguments: It will build their hand-eye coordination;  It will give them a head-start on technology they’ll use later in…

One of my all time favorite television characters is Michael Scott from The Office (back when the show was still funny). The self-centered and incompetent, though well-meaning office manager was portrayed masterfully by actor Steve Carell. One of the many trademarks of the character was his internal need to demonstrate to his subordinates that he…

Imagine that your husband, wife, or child was in a terrible car accident. Imagine you were told by physicians that a complicated surgery was the best option to save their life and assure a successful recovery.  Imagine that a skilled surgeon was readily available to perform the surgery. What would you think if a hospital…

Why Did Ron Paul Get a Pass on His “Hates Muslims” Comment?

When I saw the Tonight Show video clip of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul saying that fellow candidates Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum “hate Muslims”, I was sure it had been taken out of a context. I figured that maybe Jay Leno had jokingly asked Paul to describe how critics would try and frame each…
