The women who excel in high school, and study math and science, do as well or BETTER than the majority of men. It's a matter of choice, and of talent, and ability, and a lot of hard work.

Women, as well as men, put themselves into occupational dead ends by choice. Anyone who is willing to work at being good at something for which there is a lucrative market is going to succeed and make top pay. It's not art. It's not music. It's not retail sales. Business may work. Science, engineering and medicine are guaranteed to work.

Hey, isn't that the same bull$#!+ horn they use for Obamacare? The COVERAGE is maybe affordable for some, but then when you get SICK, the out of pocket and exclusions, including under the tax laws, make it more expensive than ever.

Finally. An admission that socialists are CRAZY.

What happened to Clay Bennett? Vacation?

This is not a hard thing to figure out. Every police agency has its area of lawful jurisdiction. Government compounds are excluded from local police jurisdiction, so they have their own armed law enforcement officers to police areas within U. S. Government jurisdiction. It's the same on military bases, in the National Parks, etc. Railroads also have their own police who are deputized by the local sheriff's office.

A large part of effective "policing" is in being familiar with the area being policed. That's why there are special purpose police assigned. Do you really want a railroad cop coming to your house to answer a noise complaint? No. Do you want a local cop with no knowledge of railroad operations running around loose in a train yard? No.

If you want to reduce the need for police, then don't harbor known criminals in your neighborhoods, families and social groups.

The answer is to reverse the liberal policies and attitudes which allow people to languish in mental illness and provide only promises of peace and security to the victims of those who are paranoid and react to human emotions with violence.

Some people are CRAZY. They need to be identified and LOCKED UP. Get used to it.

The problem is not a lack of weapons in schools. It's a lack of accountability in our society.

Mars is also getting warmer. Could the problem be the SUN?

This controversy makes only slightly less sense than the Tennessee deadly serpent handling industry.

The path of least resistance is paved with the excuses of those who'd rather make everybody a failure than do the work necessary to succeed.

Is Obama the only black person Clay knows how to draw? That must be why he only draws old white guys that look like Dick Cheney.

As for "standards," they're pretty low all around, especially on the Times Free Press editorial pages.

The only thing rich old white men ever did was study hard, work hard, save, invest, support their families and pay their taxes. HOW DARE THEY?!

Unfortunately, that's what it takes for most old white men to get what they have earned, and most of them are 45 years old before they have financial security, if then.

Why do poor people and minorities think they can jump the line and have it all at everyone else's expense, without earning it?
