The School Shooting In San Bernardino Reminds Us That Domestic Violence Doesn’t Stay At Home

Unfortunately, San Bernardino is back in the news for yet another horrific tragedy, 17 months later. An 8-year-old student is dead, along with his teacher, Karen Smith, and ultimately, her estranged husband, Cedric Anderson. It’s baffling to me that when a husband comes into his wife’s workplace to kill her and then himself, the media hesitates to characterize it as domestic violence. Is it because it didn’t happen at home, behind closed doors, like it should? To those of us who work to end violence against women every day, we recognized a tragic, but all too familiar story. We weren’t…

United Airlines, David Dao And The Way We Blame

Some years ago I was walking by Croke Park stadium in Dublin immediately after the close of the All-Ireland Hurling Final, in which County Tipperary defeated County Galway. Amidst the sea of jubilant Tipperary supporters in yellow floated disconsolate knots of Galway fans in maroon, and one of these passed close by me, its members grimly silent until one gave name to the depth and nature of their despair: “It’s so bloody predictable; I can’t believe it happened.” There are some misfortunes that seem so inevitable that their occurrence is a surprise on two levels ― that nothing was done…

(Spoiler alert: Don’t read this if you haven’t seen the Season 3 premiere of “Better Call Saul.”) Whether in “Breaking Bad” or “Better Call Saul,” one of Vince Gilligan’s signature traits as a storyteller is his ability to slowly build to a big reveal through patient scenes that leave us guessing. We saw this in action again Monday night on the season 3 premiere of “Better Call Saul,” which was largely devoted to showing us how Mike Ehrmantraut hatched an elaborate scheme. After fleeing from a failed attempt to kill Hector Salamanca in last year’s finale — and discovering a…

Oversights Of Justice

Reading the two-page edict released by Attorney General Jefferson Sessions I had the feeling I was missing something. I scoured the Internet looking for misplaced pages, at first assuming, and then praying that there had been unintentional omissions. Oversights. The directive by the Attorney General ordered the Department of Justice to review all agency activities—e.g., active research grants, investigations, agreements with police departments—with the intent of ensuring they align with this administration’s agenda. But the values that are missing from that agenda represent much of what we have learned works in policing: that we are safer when we 1) value…

Ashton Kutcher Chokes Up About His ‘Great Fortune to Fail Again and Again and Again’ (Video)

Ashton Kutcher wore his heart on his sleeve as he accepted the Robert D. Ray Pillar of Character Award in his hometown of Des Moines, Iowa on Friday night, saying, “Character hides and it comes out when you get smacked in the mouth.” Kutcher was presented with the honor that salutes “individuals who demonstrate good character as a role model.” “I actually think that when you do nice things for people, I come from a world where you don’t really talk about it and you don’t receive praise for it,” he said. “And when it’s done, you go do something…
