Board of Education, which held that segregation in schools was unconstitutional. | Persky, who is facing a June recall vote for what critics said was a shamefully short sentence in the trial of Brock Turner, had the option to sentence the college athlete to a maximum of 14 years in prison but chose to give the convicted felon just six months instead.

Staff (2018-05-10). Despite Trump Administration's Hype, The U.S. Is Not at Full Employment. truthdig.com There is a general consensus that the U.S. economy is close to full employment, given that one of the most commonly used measures (based on nonfarm payroll data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics) indicates an unemployment rate that has fallen to 3.9 percent.

And in fact, if one digs into the data a bit more closely, it does bring to mind the old expression commonly attributed to Mark Twain about "lies, damned lies, and statistics." | A longstanding problem relating to our economic measurements such as employment is that U.S. policymakers see much of the employment data at the same time that…

" | It's another Trump affair — this time without the allegations of sexual harassment (and worse), the charges and counter-charges, the lawsuits, and all the rest. So it hasn't gotten the sort of headlines that Stormy Daniels has garnered, but when it comes to influence, American foreign policy, and issues of peace and war, it couldn't matter more or be a bigger story (or have more money or lobbyists involved in it).

Supreme Court to Decide Whether the First Amendment Actually Protects Your Right to Silence. alternet.org The American "right to silence" is on trial this year. | New Hampshire's state motto "Live free or die" is, for many residents, a stirring evocation of the independent spirit of colonial America. But not all New Hampshirites agree with this well-known slogan that is emblazoned on the state's license plates. In 1975, George Maynard was sent to jail because he didn't believe in it. Maynard and his wife were Jehovah's Witnesses, a Christian denomination that teaches that true believers will enjoy eternal life. The couple felt that the state's motto violated this tenet. So Maynard covered up the "or die" part on his vehicles' license plates. Police gave him three different tickets for illegally altering the plates.
