Most of us take the Internet for granted. That is, if it is available and affordable for you. For millions of Americans, they are not on the web. Children are at a great disadvantage with homework if they can’t get on the web. So just how much a disconnect is there in America.?

Campbell Brown: Why We Must Unite to Close the STEM Gender Gap


Daughter Campbell is back in the news this week writing about the failure to seriously engage and support more girls in science, technology, engineering, and math classes. She says that the challenge for a just society is finding ways to remove systemic obstacles and erode cultural biases that devalue and limit opportunities for girls and women. Campbell is the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of The 74. You can read her thoughts by Clicking Here.

It’s early summer when many of us turn our attention to—well either baseball or politics. It’s hard in the current sports and political climate to watch both in the evening. Would you rather watch Trump and Clinton go at it, or see if the Yankees can edge out a winning season? So what is it for you-Politics or Baseball? I have a particular opinion; so if you want to read my take in this week’s column, go to the Red Flashing Box above, or Click Here.

Walker Percy Weekend!

Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 4.47.09 PM

Many readers who love Louisiana literature gathered this past weekend in St. Francisville, Louisiana to celebrate the live and works of novelist Walker Percy. He was, to me, a literary icon and many consider him to be America’s most significant Catholic writer. And he was passionate about Louisiana. So passionate that he took the time to give me some good advise about what he considered to be the insidious politics in the Bayou State years ago when I ran for Governor. Pictured above is photojournalist Chris Harris, Percy’s daughter Mary Pratt, Judge Steven Ellis who knew Percy well, and old friend and best selling author Jason Berry, along with yours truly, all who spoke at the festival. . By the way, St. Fransciville is one of the most charming small towns in America.  You can read a column I wrote about Walker Percy by Clicking Here.
