Driving on the Right Side

More often than not, I’m greeted with a look of bewilderment or disdain — sometimes a combination of both — when I mention my fondness for NASCAR. Such reactions don’t surprise me. Really, I get it. A guy of my stature, whatever that means, is not usually found in the stands drinking beer, indulging in fried food and standing in solidarity with thousands of flag-waving, driver-obsessed fans. It’s much easier to imagine me having a nice dinner and a glass of wine, then strolling over to a crowded theater to join a crowd erupting in applause …read more

This Might Be The Cutest NFL Injury Report Ever

Who knew housebreaking a puppy could be so hazardous to a big strong football player?

In what’s easily one of the most adorable NFL-related tweets ever, the Detroit Lions announced that tight end Joseph Fauria sprained his ankle while trying to stop his dog from having an accident inside.

Noticing that his husky-pomeranian mix Lil’ Rufio was beginning to urinate in his apartment Wednesday night, …read more

Labor Secretary Thomas Perez On Maternity Leave: We Aren't 'Serving Our Women'

In a HuffPost Live interview Tuesday, Labor Secretary Thomas Perez echoed what he and other members of the Obama administration have been pushing for months: it’s time to catch up to the rest of the world and offer women in the United States paid maternity leave.

“We are the most powerful nation on the planet, economically, militarily and otherwise,” Perez told host Marc Lamont Hill. “We lead on so many things, but we don’t lead on leave. The challenge here is that our economy is moving in the right direction, 10 million jobs over the last 52 …read more

Sell Like John Lennon

2014-09-29-SoFi2300x181.jpg

John Lennon is my real estate agent in South Beach, Miami. Seriously, that is his real name.

John sells property on only one street, South Pointe Drive, in the exclusive area called SoFi (South of Fifth). His sales territory consists of six über-luxury high-rises along the cruise ship waterway and Miami Beach front.

In the past 15 years, John has sold more than $3 billion in real estate on this street. (Do the math on 3 percent commission—that’s almost as much as the other John Lennon made!)

A few months ago, John took my wife …read more

In Limbo Between War and Peace: A Vietnam Veteran Comes Home

How a country treats it war veterans says a lot about its values. Not the values it purports to cherish, but those it actually holds. Whether one comes from a family where fathers, son, mothers and daughters have always served, or from one that hasn’t seen a member in uniform for generations, most of us believe that when a nation sends its young people off to war, they deserve recognition and, more importantly, help–psychological, medical, financial, whatever it takes to make sure they’re whole–when they come home.

In the spring of 1971, LIFE magazine published a remarkable story, “A …read more

Reza Aslan Blasts Bill Maher, Media For 'Unsophisticated' Reporting On Islam

Reza Aslan has a thing or two to say about media coverage of Islam.

Speaking with CNN on Monday Aslan criticized comedian Bill Maher for characterizing female genital mutilation as an “Islamic problem,” in addition to making several other sweeping generalizations about the faith.

“When it comes to the topic of religion he’s not very sophisticated in the way that he thinks,” Aslan said.

On Friday the comedian went on a rampage against Americans who defend Islam but criticize Christian group’s homophobia. “If we’re giving no quarter to intolerance,” Maher said, “shouldn’t we …read more

Is Tom Brady As We Know Him Finished?

After years at the pinnacle of his career, Tom Brady’s wretched play in Monday night’s game confused viewers. And yet, questions about the quarterback began before the shellacking in Kansas City. With four touchdown passes through four games, Brady is off to the worst start of his professional career. Moreover, both he and the New England Patriots — for perhaps the first time in 17 years under Bill Belichick — appear vulnerable.

The quarterback is often considered the most important and alpha male position in pro sports, but it wouldn’t be fair or accurate to place …read more

War against Islamic State: Sowing seeds of more extremist groups

By James M Dorsey

The US-led international response to the Islamic State’s advances in Iraq and Syria is more extensive and fraught with danger than the war on terror declared by President George W Bush in the wake of the 9-11 attacks on New York and Washington. It is a response that contains the seeds of continued failure in confronting terrorism and threatens to give rise to groups that may be even more extreme than the Islamic State, hard though that may be to imagine.

Bush concluded within weeks of the 9/11 attacks that Al Qaeda was as …read more
