Remembering Hank Aaron and a Forgotten Labor Day

Politics, Moderate / Joe Guzzardi /

For Major League Baseball teams and their fans, Labor Day is a benchmark to project which teams will make it to the playoffs.

Can We Trust Biden To Vet Afghan Refugees?

Politics, Moderate / Joe Guzzardi /

No sooner had the Taliban taken control of Kabul than the establishment demanded that thousands of Afghans be given immediate U.S. resettlement privileges.

Allegedly, and likely at least partially accurate, some Afghans are friendly to the U.S. government, and worked with American military. Now, so goes the standard patter, with our allies’...Read more
