    America after the Civil War was a land of shattered promises and entrenched hatreds. In the explosive South, danger took many forms: white extremists loyal to a defeated world terrorized former slaves, while in the halls of government, bitter and byzantine political warfare raged between Republicans and Democrats.

    Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams is trying to make history by becoming the first African American, and the first woman, elected governor of Georgia. She has been running neck and neck with Republican Brian Kemp, the Georgia secretary of state. Her campaign hit a momentary kerfuffle when the New York Times reported on social media posts regarding her participation in the burning of Georgia’s state flag while a college student in 1992. Abrams unapologetically stood by her youthful act of constitutionally protected free speech, which occurred at a time when the whole state was debating what to do with a banner that incorporated the Confederate battle flag, having been modified to include that hateful symbol by the state’s segregationist officials in 1956. Abrams was among those who rightly believed such a banner represented, as she understatedly put it in a Tuesday night candidates’ debate, “racial divisiveness.”

    "Good for Stacey Abrams" is from the October 25, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Charles Lane and narrated by Sam Scholl.

This small volume includes two famous essays by Peirce, "The Fixation of Belief" and "Questions Concerning Certain Faculties Claimed for Man." Also included is a short, intellectual biography of Peirce which focuses on his many contributions to science and philosophy. Chosen and very slightly edited by Professor David Christopher Lane, PhD.

    Ford announced Tuesday that it will not be building a planned $1.6 billion small-car plant in Mexico, which Trump had condemned as a betrayal of U.S. workers. Explaining the capitulation on CNBC, Ford chief executive Mark Fields acknowledged his duty to shareholders, but added, “We have to make sure, at the same time, that we have good relations with the various governments that are in power.”

    Some of the most effective intelligence agencies in history have served the most odious dictatorships. The Soviet KGB, the East German Stasi, Cuban state security — many American intelligence pros ruefully concede that these services ran rings around Western counterparts, even if some of the regimes they served eventually collapsed anyway.

    Who’s to blame for the fact that November is just around the corner and Donald Trump is within shouting distance of electoral victory? The media, of course. Journalistic institutions stand accused of facilitating Trump’s rise, through reportorial lassitude or outright connivance with him for the sake of ratings.

    In western Paraguay fields that were once thick rain forests are now soybean plantations. The rows of soybeans stretch far into the distance, swaying hypnotically back and forth in the wind. This ocean of soy, though, is dotted with small islands--houses, actually, that belong to the subsistence campensinos who once eked out a living farming an array of crops like sugar, cotton, wheat, and maize. Now there is only one industrial harvest: soy.
