An Innocent Man is About to Be Put to Death

I have long abhorred the death penalty. The thought of killing someone for the crime of killing someone else seems so cruelly ironic. My abhorrence only intensified when I learned of a study that showed at least 4.1% of those put to death in America are innocent. When you figure that more than 1,400 people […]

Want to Save the Economy? Well Then it’s Time We “Make Polluters Pay”

Dear fellow MoveOn member, Here’s a big-picture idea: instead of investing in dirty fuels, let’s start charging polluters for poisoning our skies and then invest the revenue so that it benefits everyone.
