Some good and some over the top in Michael Moore's latest, writes Brummett. One step in the right direction: expanding the under-used state program of barebones cheaper group insurance for small businesses. (It's no solution for those who can't afford even that  minimal coverage or the tens of millions of others with no access to even that. Health care is one of those enormous issues better left not to the state but to a single entity, the federal government, as superior health coverage in many other countries proves.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families.
