“You’ll be the first in our family to set foot in Alabama,” my mom half-joked over the phone from L.A., when I told her where I was going. “Well, I was the first one to set foot in... read full article

  • At UCLA, the power of negative emotions

    By David Suissa

    2 days ago

    For several years now, a nasty anti-Israel group called Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has bludgeoned Israel’s image on college campuses. They take no prisoners. They have little interest in polite and civil debate. They are lethal at manipulating the college bureaucracy...
