Why not check laws with law enforcement first?

Doesn’t it make sense that lawmakers, before they pass any new law, should have to seriously consult with the professionals who will have to uphold and enforce it? We think so. Of course, legislators won’t always do what police and prosecutors want — nor should they. But doesn’t the ...

Remember playing in the snow?

At what age do kids stop wanting to play in the snow? Sure, they go back to it from time to time. There are moments when the most aloof teenager and stodgy grown-up revert to their 5-year-old selves — maybe to throw a snowball, sled down a hill or sink into the powder on skis, a snowboard or ...

Spreading the news

Plastic doesn’t go away so easily

Clearly, the developed world needs to do more about how we dispose of our trash. Just as obviously, the United States, often cited as the chief villain in that regard, is far from alone. For years, much of the plastic waste disposed of by prosperous countries — even much of that officials ...
