    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence.

  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty.

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard.

    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…

  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…

In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight.

The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence.

  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…

    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard.

    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…

  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard.

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war.

In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard.

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence.

  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty.

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard.

    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

  • Fugitive ex-LAPD officer caught in Mexico, will face U.S. murder charges

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt. Late Tuesday, Solis was handed over to U.S. federal agents in El Paso, Texas, where he will be held on California murder charges for the shooting death of Salome Rodriguez Jr. outside a bar on March 13. Mexican authorities say Solis resisted arrest, but that no shots were fired. Solis is accused of shooting Rodriguez, 23, after some dispute at a bar in Pomona, California, when he was off-duty. The LAPD fired him a few days later, and his…
  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…

  • Moderate liberals' weak case against riots

    27 May 2015 | 3:12 am
    After the Baltimore unrest last month, there were two divergent reactions: the center-left, center, and right reacted with stunned outrage, arguing that any such violence or looting is illegitimate. The left countered, arguing that this was a double standard given continual police violence, and that rioting might even work politically, by drawing attention to otherwise ignored problems. Jonathan Chait, somewhere between the center and the center-left, has returned to the argument armed with new evidence. It comes in the form of a draft study from Omar Wasow, an assistant professor at…
  • Barney Frank explains why big business is backing gay rights

    27 May 2015 | 3:04 am
    One of the biggest and most consequential shifts in the push for gay rights was when corporate America joined the fray, recently siding with LGTB advocates against "religious freedom" laws Indiana and Arkansas. In an interview with Evan Smith, former Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) called the business community "a critical block" in the gay-rights fight. "It's very good to win an issue because you have morality on your side, but it helps in America if the profit motive weighs in," Frank said on the PBS show Overheard. "And essentially what you now have is the business community saying to the…

  • Israel launches its first airstrikes in the Gaza Strip since ceasefire

    27 May 2015 | 5:13 am
    Israeli fighter jets launched four airstrikes in the Gaza Strip early Wednesday, marking the first air strikes since a ceasefire between Gaza militants and Israel went into effect. The ceasefire followed last summer's 50-day war. The Israeli airstrikes came after a rocket, which Israel's defense minister, Moshe Yaalon, says was sent by the Islamic Jihad group, was fired at southern Israel on Tuesday night. Yaalon told The Associated Press that the Israeli airstrikes were aimed at Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian militant group in the Gaza Strip, as well as at Hamas sites. No Palestinian group,…

    27 May 2015 | 4:03 am
    On Tuesday, Mexican police arrested Henry Solis, a 27-year-old former Los Angeles Police Department officer, in Ciudad Juarez, ending a two-month manhunt.
