    It’s been hilarious watching the left have a meltdown about Elon Musk taking over Twitter and bringing in a lot of changes. One of the things that he seems intent on doing is making the company a more viable and efficient workplace. I wrote last month about how it was more like a spa at the headquarters than a work environment, where people could work remotely if they chose to but if they came in they had meditation rooms, yoga areas, free food, and red wine on tap. ... That’s likely one of the reasons that the company wasn’t making...

    The time is now to make a change. Regardless of their career, women have had it with being diminished, condescended to, passed over, and belittled. They have had it with inappropriate touching, leering words, innuendos, and emotional or verbal abuse. Regardless if it’s the entertainment world, a school, a doctor’s office, a bank, or Capitol Hill, women have a right to expect behavioral decency in the workplace. Throughout my career, whether in the private or public sector, I have sought to encourage women in the workplace. An acceptance of seediness and vulgarity has seeped into our culture, and now it...
  • My Experience With the ‘Good Ol’ Boy’ Culture, and What I’m Doing About It Now

    America is having a reckoning and it’s long overdue. I’m talking about the movement to hold sexual harassers accountable for their actions. This important movement is now shaking the halls of power in Congress and state capitols and I am determined to help lead it. I remember my first year in the Tennessee House of Representatives. It was 1998, and having spent my career as a nurse and an educator, I had a lot to learn about the legislative process. I immediately figured out that the state House had a “good ol' boy” culture - and learned about the inappropriate...

    Right Angle The town square test Friday March 11 2005 18:24 IST Swapan Dasgupta Conventional wisdom deems conservatism and doctrinaire politics to be wildly incompatible. What the much-misunderstood Enoch Powell termed the “community of nation and church”, coupled with old-fashioned common sense, have been at the heart of conservative approaches to politics. Intellectualism and ideological hair-splitting have traditionally been the prerogatives of the Left. No longer. Ever since Margaret Thatcher put the economist Friedrich von Hayek on a pedestal and embraced monetarism, there has been an unspoken rupture between a Toryism that celebrates Edmund Burke and Lord Salisbury, and the...

    Scalia Sounds Off on Religious Rulings ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Tuesday that judges should look to historical practices when ruling on religious issues. Speaking at the University of Michigan, Scalia criticized judges for using what he called "abstractions" to interpret religious issues when they should be looking to the text of the Constitution itself. "The Constitution says what it says and does not say what it does not say," he said. Scalia's appearance was sponsored by Ave Maria School of Law, a private school in Ann Arbor backed by Domino's Pizza founder...

    August 29, 2004 Is 'Keep Off the Grass' Elitist?By ALEX WILLIAMS S Central Park a serene "church" for reflective New Yorkers or a bustling "town square" for the masses? Is it a bucolic "oasis" for Wordsworthian rumination or a sterile "grass museum" serving first and foremost to enhance the view from the high windows of the finest buildings of Fifth Avenue and Central Park West, where some of the park's wealthier benefactors happen to live?In the fierce debate of the past weeks and months over whether more than 200,000 anti-Republican protesters should be allowed to congregate en masse on the...

    A Christian church in Fort Lauderdale may proceed with a holiday display claiming that "Jesus is the Reason for the Season," but it took a court battle for the church to get its message out. In response to a lawsuit filed by a civil liberties group, a federal judge in Miami ordered Broward County to let the Calvary Chapel sponsor a Christmas display featuring a cross and the message noting Jesus' central role in Christmas. Which Holiday? The church is among dozens of businesses and organizations willing to pay up to $15,000 to take part in Broward County's annual "Holiday...
