Cohen: What your own eyes should tell you

A friend of mine worked for a small-town newspaper years ago and had to write the weather report. The county fair was approaching but the prediction was for rain. So the editors, fearing the wrath of local merchants, ordered my friend to change "rainy" to "sunny." That was the newspaper's policy. It has since been adopted by much of the Republican Party.

Round of 16: Who will survive?

In the 2014 World Cup, we have seen great scoring, thrilling comebacks, last-second-goals, joyous celebrations and painful defeats. Dramatic matches, and their accompanying Maalox moments, have been numerous. We have even seen a player go cannibal and bite one of his competitors. Now we are out of the group phase of play and we begin the "win or go home" portion of the tournament. Half of the tournament field has been culled. We are now left with the best 16 teams in the World Cup.

What are legislative gambits?

If you've ever played chess, you know that an action taken to gain an advantage is called a gambit. Gambits exist in other fields of endeavor, many of which are not games, to include legislating. I'm going to acquaint you with some that I've seen. Many more exist. For the sake of convenience, I'll give them names, but most of those names are just mine.

5 reasons we need camp meetings now more than ever

Each summer I do something odd by most American standards: I spend one week with my extended family, we sleep in a crowded cabin with no air conditioner and we go to worship services three times per day - alongside of hundreds of others - in an open air structure with a sawdust floor. The songs we sing were written long before I was born and the sermons last much longer than 15 to 18 minutes.
