You'd think he learned his lesson four years ago, but if Rudy Giuliani is to be believed, Benjamin Netanyahu is once again endorsing the Republican candidate for president. 

That's because one of the Netanyahu government's greatest fears is as president, Hillary Clinton might try to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the former New York mayor told the Washington Post.

Making choices can be immobilizing. If recently you’ve bought a laptop or printer, you may have a sense of how hard it is to make a decision. Do you really need a laptop? Perhaps a tablet might do?

“I am here today to tell you a story of hope,” Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, before speaking about his life and experiences as a person with multiple disabilities.

There’s no mystery here about the circumstances of the shooting, no reason to parse the police version of the story vs. the victim’s story. There’s just this:  a black man lying on his back, his empty hands up behind his head, and his autistic charge sitting nearby, playing with his toy truck. If you don’t believe me, here it is: 

I was completely rattled by this story.
