A Harvard Class about Quentin Tarantino?

02/18/13 05:41PM

There are certain things that can't be taught. Musical ear. Court vision. Sense of humor. Empathy. Racism is not one of those things. In fact, you could make a very convincing argument that racism is a widely taught art on the planet. Handed down from generation to generation, parent to child like good hair and freckles. read more

Inside The Cycle

02/16/13 04:27PM

One aspect of the show that all of the Cyclists take very seriously is choosing the music we use to go into the breaks. When it's your day to lead the show you get to pick pretty much whatever you want for all the breaks (where we go out to commercial). read more

Changing expectations: First ladies are windows into history

02/15/13 06:51PM

Since the day that Abigail Adams called the White House her home, the position of First Lady has captivated Americans.

Guns in the black community

02/15/13 05:56PM

This year I'm celebrating Black History Month by talking about some significant issues in the Black community. Today guns.

The case for raising the minimum wage

02/14/13 06:35PM

Republicans are desperately searching for a new image, new brand, new ways to convince the average Joe that they're not just the party of the rich catering to the American plutocracy.
