Doing Anti-Racism Wrong

Bitter Pill

When Martin Shkreli, CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, announced his August acquisition of Daraprim, the only available version of the anti-parasitic pyrimethamine, and his plan to raise its price from under $14.00 to $750 per dose, I did not comment. Everybody else seemed to know exactly how evil the man was,

Trick-or-Merry Christmas?

So I’m sitting in Starbucks for a few hours, waiting for my youngest to emerge from a concert. I like Starbucks. Good coffee — at least “good enough,” though pricey. Good wireless Internet — at least good enough . . . and for free. But, ’tis the season — the

“No Boots on the Ground”

South Dakota Déjà Vu

In the words of Yogi Berra, the recently deceased baseball great: “It’s déjà vu all over again.” We’ve followed the incredible case of Dr. Annette Bosworth extensively this year.
