Now that he faces possible rejection, the wall has become a metaphor for Donald Trump’s identity, his very being-ness, and could lead to a national crisis.
The test for speech on university campuses should not be whether it incites or amuses, but whether it enlightens and intellectually engages.

It is, by far and away, the stupidest government shutdown in American history. Worse, Democrats are doing it over a border wall strikingly similar to one that they almost unanimously supported just five years ago.
There are many victims in recent stories about Jesuit priests accused of sexual abuse. Among them are the Revs. Frank Case and Patrick Lee.
To Sister Norma Pimentel, it sounded like a golden opportunity to touch the heart of a president, to give him a firsthand account of the suffering she sees every day. But he didn’t go there.
In a year of congressional lowlights, the hearings we held with Silicon Valley leaders last fall may have been the lowest. One of my House colleagues asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai about the workings of an iPhone – a product of rival Apple. Another asked Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg, “If you’re not listening to us on the phone, who is?” One senator was flabbergasted to learn that Facebook makes money from advertising. Over hours of testimony, my fellow members of Congress struggled to grapple with technologies used daily by most Americans and with the functions of the internet itself.

Sen.

The political world rolled its eyes and declared it shameless pandering. Did the ex-Harvard academic really prefer the thin, yellow fizz of Michelob Ultra, especially when her Boston region is home to some of the world’s best producers of richer, tastier IPAs, amber ales and porters?
To the list of unanswerable philosophical conundrums – e.g., “What is the good life?” or “Do we have free will?” – add another: What the heck is the U.S. policy toward Syria?
Democrats are not miracle workers. Republicans still control the Senate, Donald Trump is still the president, and there is still a conservative majority on the Supreme Court.
January is National Mentoring Month. When we think mentoring, we might first think of the Boys & Girls Club or the YMCA, but at On Track Academy we’ve created a school culture with mentoring at its core.
