‘Superman Smashes the Klan’ author says story about racism against Asian Americans still relevant

Back in 1946, the hit radio series “The Adventures of Superman” ran a storyline in which the Man of Steel defends a Chinese-American family against a loosely fictionalized version of the Ku Klux Klan, defeating the racist villains in the process. Cartoonist Gene Luen Yang, who has written for both “Superman” and “New Super-Man” and is the author of the recently released graphic novel “Dragon Hoops,” learned about this groundbreaking story not from comics, but from a mention in the book “Freakano...

Elon Musk just earned $780 million from Tesla — but there’s a catch

It’s a big day for Elon Musk. The enigmatic billionaire just unlocked almost $800 million worth of cheap Tesla shares — the first payout in what’s considered the largest compensation package of its kind in history. Indeed, Musk can now buy around 1.7 million Tesla shares for $350.02 each, a total cost of just over $595 million. Tesla stock currently trades at $808.32, which means Musk hypothetically stands to profit $778.6 million in just two trades. [Read: A look at the $17 billion stock portfo...

The House just ditched a bill that would renew and expand the FBI's surveillance powers after Trump threatened to veto it

The House of Representatives just canceled a vote on a controversial bill that would have renewed the Patriot Act and expanded the FBI's surveillance powers after President Donald Trump said he'd veto it. The bill drew backlash last week from progressives and civil liberties groups, who warned it would let the FBI conduct warrantless searches of Americans' web-browsing history. But Trump opposes the bill for another reason: He believes it gives the Justice Department too much power when invest...

‘Rodham’ author Curtis Sittenfeld reveals the secrets of her fictional Hillary Clinton

The premise of “Rodham,” Curtis Sittenfeld’s new novel, is remarkably simple: What if Hillary Rodham never married Bill Clinton. In the book, Sittenfeld explores an array of topics as complex as the real Hillary. From its unique, counterfactual perspective, Rodham reexamines the themes behind many Clinton-related conversations over the past decades, everything from personal and political sexual dynamics to media coverage of women in politics.

With his return to blogging, is Bill Otis no longer a potential nominee for the US Sentencing Commission?

Long-time readers should be familiar with the name Bill Otis, not only because he was for years a regular commentor on this blog, but also because he is a prominent former federal prosecutor who often prominently shared his (tough-on-crime) sentencing perspectives in many media.  We have not heard much from Bill in a few years; his recent quietness seemed a direct result of Bill being tapped to be one of Prez Trump's notable March 2018 nominations to the US Sentencing Commission.  I surmise that...

Top 10 NHL Jerseys Discussion Nourishes ‘Social Closeness-ing’

Social distancing, huh? That’s a good one… and nothing new. As a young boy and teenager, our family lost our dad and my sister. Then, in the blink of an eye, the rest of my brothers and sisters were out of the house, doing grown-up things. I also said goodbye to friends who moved away. But on the fortunate side, I developed life-long friends who I consider brothers and sisters to this day.

I also set out some of the border...
