LBJ

Written by Rob Rogers on .

It has been fifty years since Lyndon Baines Johnson managed to wrangle Congress into passing major civil rights legislation. Some historians ask why Obama hasn't had the same kind of influence on Capitol Hill.

Pay Off

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Women's pay is definitely "off" when compared to the earnings of men doing the same job. Sadder still, African American and Latino women make even less.

Post-War Art

Written by Rob Rogers on .

An exhibition of George W. Bush's paintings of world leaders recently opened at Dubya's presidential library. His painting, like his presidency, has been heavily criticized. Fortunately, his paintings haven't caused as many dead and wounded.

Split Decision

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The jury in the Jordan Miles civil rights lawsuit ended with a split decision. They ruled for Miles on wrongful arrest, but ruled against him when it came to the beating he took after the wrongful arrest was underway. I am glad Miles won some vindication for his suffering, but that certainly doesn't make up for failed justice.
