The first rule of budgeting, in business and in the typical American household, is that the budget’s plan for spending money must be matched – or preferably exceeded – by anticipated income. Things don’t always go according to the plan, of course, but balancing spending with revenue is the t…

I’ve been struck recently by news coverage of humans’ degradation of the planet. Two opposing themes keep appearing. One is the sense that, as individuals, there’s little we can do. The other: As citizens of the planet we have a responsibility to protect it and to pass it on in good shape to…

In June, inspectors from the department visited five facilities in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, and found children had few spare clothes and no laundry facilities. Many migrants were given only wet wipes to clean themselves and bologna sandwiches to eat, causing constipation and other hea…
