    I’ve complained about the state of modern mainstream country music for a long time now. And clearly, I’m not alone. Singer-songwriter Collin Raye, one of the top country artists throughout the ’90s, recently took to Fox News to air his grievances at the state of country music today. As a platinum-selling country music artist and, more importantly, a lifelong fan of the genre, I’d like to send out this heartfelt plea to the gatekeepers of the industry:Enough already.I’d like to think that I am expressing what nearly every artist, musician and songwriter (with perhaps a few exceptions) is thinking when...

    Demonstrators at the Wisconsin capitol, union representatives and absent Democratic state senators concede in interviews that they don't object to a bill requiring teachers and other public employees to pay 12.5 percent of their health insurance (up from five percent), or up to half of their pension deposits. It is the curbing of collective bargaining that has brought on near hysteria and a fierce campaign to discredit Governor Scott Walker's legislation. For the union leaders the consequences of passage of the legislation could be devastating to their sinecures. Amid all the shouting, placards and banging on pots and pans in...

    Although they still claim to be the last best hope for public education, the influence of teachers’ unions has wanted so much that criticism of the association’s and federations has spread beyond conservative and Republican groups to the school boards and superintendents that they once made and broke. “There is a teacher I have hired and I don’t know if he’s with us on our team,” Baltimore Talent Development High School principal Jeffrey Robinson said at a recent meeting at the National Academies of Science. “I know the unions have their rules and something must be done about the unions.”...
