Editor Bob Edwards has returned from an August Voyage of Discovery along the Missouri. Where has he been and what has he done since? Some say he rushed back to Fort Peck, Montana --- via his Ford Explorer --- to visit the beautiful Olga --- others say --- via his Tesla Time Machine --- to savour the fleshpots of 1936's Happy Hollow.

The looming time-bombs of unfunded and under-funded pension liabilities threaten to shred the very fabric of American society. Detroit should spur a frank discussion on American values: Will we take the painful steps necessary to fundamentally change our funding of retirement? Is it okay to sell off public assets at pennies on the dollar to satisfy bondholders, while reneging on promises made to pensioners? Will we allow our government to continue to favor Wall Street at the expense of Main Street?
July 24, 2013 ... Caroline Kennedy nominated as ambassador to Japan ... Nedra Peckler
Former U.S. ambassadors to Japan include former Vice President Walter Mondale, former House Speaker Tom Foley and former Senate Majority Leaders Mike Mansfield and Howard Baker. Kennedy, 55, doesn't have their foreign policy heft or any obvious ties to Japan, a key ally in dealing with North Korea's nuclear ambitions. She would replace John Roos, a wealthy former Silicon Valley lawyer and top Obama campaign fundraiser.
July 24, 2013 ... Fears over Zimmerman verdict riots prove overblown ... Associated Press
Community leaders and scholars say the overwhelmingly peaceful response to the Zimmerman verdict reflects increased opportunities for African-Americans, the powerful image of a black president voicing frustration with the verdict, and the modern ability to create change through activism and social media rather than a brick.
July 16, 2013 ... Juror B37 Speaks Out About Zimmerman Verdict ... National Public Radio
The juror had a better impression of another witness, the former lead investigator of the case, Sanford Police officer Chris Serino. She told Cooper his testimony was important. (SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW, "ANDERSON COOPER 360")

COOPER: When he testified that he found George Zimmerman to be more or less and overall truthful, did that make an impression on you?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: It did. It did. It made a big impression on me.

COOPER: Why?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Because he deals with this all the time.

ALLEN: The judge told the jury to disregard the comment by Serino, that he found Zimmerman's story believable. Juror B37 seemed to indicate she ignored the judge's instruction.

The facts matter, and trials are all about facts. Every time there is a high-profile trial, observers rush to draw conclusions about the American legal systemor even about American societybased on the results. But the idiosyncrasies of the trial process generally make such judgments unwise. A dog walker, a security camera, a clearer audio on a 911 tapeand wed be having a very different conversation about the Zimmerman trial.
July 16, 2013 ... Senate steps back from Filibuster brink in nominations fight ... Associated Press
There was more to it than that. Scarcely 24 hours earlier, Reid had insisted that if Republicans didn't stop blocking confirmation of all seven, he would trigger a change in the Senate's procedures to strip them of their ability to delay. At the core of the dispute is the minority party's power to stall or block a yes-or-no vote on nearly anything, from legislation to judicial appointments to relatively routine nominations for administration positions.
July 15, 2013 ... The Zimmerman Trial: How the Jury Reached "Not Guilty" ... Huffington Post
You [legal expert Steven Skurka] predicted at the start of the trial that George Zimmerman would be found not guilty. Why were you certain of the result?

The prosecution's critical mistake was over-charging Zimmerman with murder. It required proof that Zimmerman had acted with "ill will or hatred" and set out to harm Trayvon Martin when he left his car prior to the shooting. The evidence at the trial didn't support the charge. Although the jury was given the option of finding Zimmerman guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter, the focus at the trial, including the prosecutors' closing arguments, was on the second degree murder charge.


July 12, 2013 ... The U.S. Republican Party -- Killing the Immigration Bill, Polarizing America ... The New Yorker
A report by what is known as the Growth and Opportunity Project the X-rayed the 2012 election results and came to one major conclusion: the [Republicans} needed to attract more nonwhite voters or it would never win at the national level again. Mitt Romney won three-fifths of the white vote in 2012, a historically high level, but he still lost the election by almost five million votes, or four percentage points. The Republican report did not mince words about the crisis that the Party faced in the wake of these numbers. "The perception that the [Republican Party] does not care about people is doing great harm to the Party and its candidates on the federal level, especially in presidential years," it said. "It is a major deficiency that must be addressed."
July 09, 2013 ... Republican redistricting skills may hurt U.S. immigration push ... Associated Press
Both Republicans and Democrats in many states have refined the art of congressional gerrymandering, in which they draw House districts to be as strongly conservative or liberal as possible. Adding to the partisan divide are decisions by millions of Americans to live among politically like-minded people. And partisan-tinged radio and TV programs shower lawmakers and constituents with ideological reinforcement.

April 19, 2013 ... How U.S. gun bill passed Senate, succumbed to pseudo-filibuster ... Globe and Mail Editorial
In the past six years, since the Democrats won a majority, the Senate has allowed the possibility of a filibuster  not even the threat of one  to be treated as an actual filibuster. The technicalities are baroque, to put it politely, but the upshot is that Senate votes in the ordinary course require a supermajority. There is no hint of this in the Constitution.
April 18, 2013 ... Historically Speaking, No Surprise In Senate Gun Control Vote ... National Public Radio
... the idea of expanding criminal and mental health background checks to more would-be gun buyers has the support of 90 percent of the U.S. population. If it seems perplexing why an idea that has broad support nationally could fail to pass the U.S. Senate, here's an important reminder: The Senate is not a democratic institution. It never has been, and it was never designed to be. Rather, it was structured to give small or sparsely populated states the ability to stop the majority's will. And on Wednesday, that's how it worked out, as the Senate failed to reach a 60 vote threshold to support new background checks on gun purchases.

On daily media calls, Health and Human Services department officials have described a situation where problems get fixed and then new issues crop up as consumers are able to venture further into the website.

July 25, 2013 ... Evidence Is In -- Again -- U.S. Republican 'Trickledown' Economics a Failure ... Robert Creamer
This is not the first time in recent history that the evidence has indisputably shown the bankruptcy of GOP economic policies. It was just five years ago this September that the same "trickle down" economic policies resulted in the greatest financial and economic collapse in 60 years. When the Republicans passed the Bush tax cuts in 2003, they promised massive economic growth. The notion that cutting taxes for the rich would "lift all boats" turned out to be sheer fantasy. The Bush years were the first period in modern American economic history to experience zero private sector job growth -- zero.

July 12, 2013 ... Republicans Nix Food Stamps ... Huffington Post
Forty-seven million Americans receive food stamps. Nearly half are children under 18; nearly 10 percent are impoverished seniors. Food stamps are often the difference between hunger and survival. Republicans famously seem intent on being a party of white sanctuary, writing off all people of color, yet more whites receive food stamps (over one-third of all recipients) than blacks or Hispanics.

"Our country has changed," Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., said, a sentiment echoed by Justice Thomas. They could not mean that race is no longer an issue. The Times reported that one place eagerly awaiting the Court's ruling was Beaumont, Texas, where the Justice Department has blocked several attempts by a group of white citizens to change voting regulations for the explicit purpose of unseating a black-majority school board. What's so changed about that?

People thought it was too warlike, which is ironic since Francis Scott Key was a war critic. People thought it was a drinking song, which it technically was. Not like, "What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor?" type of drinking song, but [the tune] had been written for this gentleman's club in London at the time of the American Revolution. ...

Just as the conventional wisdom says Biden wants to run in 2016, the same C.W. says Clinton is running as well. While handicapping a presidential race three years in advance is foolhardy, and while nobody wins the nomination because of conventional wisdom, by nearly every measure it seems like the Democratic nomination is hers for the taking.

In the long run, this outrage could easily backfire on the N.R.A. and its allies. Like the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act and the 2010 Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court, it may come to be seen as a moment when the forces of conservatism went too far. As President Obama noted in his remarks, yesterday was just round one of the post-Newtown battle over gun control. And far from scoring a knockout, the gun lobby has given its enemies ample reason to get up off the canvas and fight back
