Nicholas Kristof1,421,609The issue of the moment is Syria, so I'm delighted to host a Google+ hangout in which we'll be able to pose questions to Secretary of State John Kerry about Syria policy. I'll be joined by +Lara Setrakian, a journalist whom I've long admired who specializes in Syria. Andrew Beiter, a social studies  teacher and a regional education coordinator for the Holocaust Memorial Museum, will also be in the Hangout. Most of all, we'll be joined by all of you--so jump into the conversation on this page and leave us your questions. In particular, with this Hangout we want to involve teachers and students, so spread the word in the schools, please, and student questions are particularly welcome! This kind of online interview is something of an experiment, and we're still figuring out how to make it work best. So we also welcome your suggestions and guidance before and criticisms after. Syria: Weighing the U.S. Response2013-09-10 20:00:006971

Just finished reading the book "The Nine" and I highly recommend it. I especially think +Colm Buckley , +Daryll Henrich , and +Adam Halper would enjoy it. Thank you +Steven Dimirsky for the recommendation. 

Totally fascinating. Very eye opening. Slightly liberal leaning, but it's fairly obvious where the author does that, so it's easy to take his slant with a grain of salt. And besides, I'm liberal anyway, so I didn't mind a bit of him poking fun at Scalia. :)

The contents of this article are so absurd it made me laugh. Because if I didn't laugh I would just cry and cry. All of these things sound so familiar to me: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/03/sunday-review/the-medical-bill-mystery.html?_r=0

The best is this:

"Heather Pearce of Seattle told me how she’d recently received a $45,000 hospital bill with the explanation “miscellaneous.”Are there no standards or regulations governing medical billing? Even my receipts from the dry cleaner say things like “sweater blue — $7.” The supermarket tells me I’ve paid $2 for 1.3 pounds of gala apples."

$45K for misc?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!!!!!

"Generosity leads to joy...I'm not telling you to take a vow of poverty. Earn as much money as you like. See the world. Buy a nice car. Get rewarded for hard work. Just know that these things don't bring joy like being generous does." 

(This statement brought on a lot of audience applause that took the speaker by surprise. And that pattern happened other times during the speech too. The graduates got it. And the speaker maybe didn't even realize how profound his speech really was. At one point he even says "It's a lively crowd!" Maybe. Or maybe there is hope for the next generation to be a generous one, after all.)

This is ridiculous. What - is this supposed to be some sort of compromise?? $12/hour - BY 2020???? That's $24,960 per year on a 40 hour work week. That's not even a high enough wage TODAY let alone in 5 years. They should make it $12 an hour TODAY (which still isn't high enough) and get it much higher by 2020.

Here's a really good lesson on letting go of needing to be "right" all the time. This article made me cry a bit.

Since it seems my last airport post was so interesting to people, here's another one. Like Pavlov's dogs, people can't resist lining up for boarding way before it's time. Why do they do this? I'm here, stress free, in my comfy airport chair. These people have been lined up for more than 30 minutes. We have assigned seats people! We are all taking off and landing at the same time. I'd like to spend the least amount of time possible in the tin can and tiny seat. Am I missing something? 

Edit : me and the five people who were the last to board behind me all got overhead space. In fact I got to put my bag in the bulkhead bin which is easier for me for my way out.

Interesting. 

Martin O'Malley, former governor of Maryland, says he'll decide by late May whether he's running for president. Running would put him — even he seems to acknowledge — in an uphill battle against Hillary Clinton, currently the only Democrat who has declared.

O'Malley is positioning himself to Clinton's left, and even President Obama's left.
Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat who is considering a 2016 presidential campaign, is interviewed by NPR's Steve Inskeep.

He's for a much higher minimum wage, and against a major trade deal — the Trans-Pacific Partnership. In an interview with NPR's Steve Inskeep, O'Malley also said he wants to increase Social Security benefits, even though some people would pay more taxes.

Surveys put O'Malley far behind Clinton. But, he's hoping his travels across the country can change that. Last month, he addressed a crowd in Iowa while standing on a chair. Last week, he gave a speech at Harvard. And this week, he's in the early primary state of South Carolina.

"I've been an executive and a progressive executive with a record of accomplishments," the former Baltimore mayor said of the difference between him and Clinton. "I think contrasts will become apparent."

Interview Highlights

On Republicans' and Democrats' competing economic theories

I think what's going on right now, Steve, is you have a competition between two theories of how our economy actually works and how we generate economic growth that lifts us all. The Republican Party is doubling down on this trickle-down theory that says thou shalt concentrate wealth at the very top of our society. Thou shalt remove regulation from wherever you find it, even on Wall Street. And thou shalt keep wages low for American workers so that we can be more competitive. We have a different theory. Our theory as Democrats and as the longer arc of our story as Americans is that we believe that a stronger middle class is actually the cause of economic growth. What ails our economy right now is 12 years of stagnant or declining wages, and we need to fix this.

On Republican candidates' focus on economic opportunity

I mean, look, talk is cheap. And so there are two ways to go forward from here, and history shows this. One path is a sensible rebalancing that calls us back to our tried and true success story as the land of opportunity. The other is pitchforks.

There's, history affords no other paths. We're either going to sensibly rebalance and do the things that allow our middle class to grow, that expands opportunities and allows workers to earn more when they're working harder. Or, we're going to go down a very, very bad path.

On whether large corporations are able to deal with regulation better than small businesses

Oh, certainly. I mean, our tax code's been turned into Swiss cheese. And certainly the concentrated wealth and accumulated power and the systematic deregulation of Wall Street has led to this situation where the economy isn't working for most of us. All of that is true. But it is not true that regulation holds poor people down or regulation keeps middle class from advancing. That's kind of patently bulls- - -.

On the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal

Yeah, I do oppose it. What's wrong with it is first and foremost that we're not allowed to read it before our representatives vote on it. What's wrong with it is that right now what we should be doing are things that make our economy stronger here at home. And it's my concern that the Trans-Pacific Partnership, this deal is a race to the bottom, a chasing of lower wages abroad, and I believe that that does nothing to help us build a stronger economy here at home.___Interesting.

I'm so glad I have a moto x and not an i phone so I don't have to be one of those people in the airport desperate for an outlet. My battery life is one of my favorite things about this phone.
