Opinion: Why America needs presidential debates now more than ever

It is unlikely that anyone would make a hiring decision without interviewing them, based only on some combination of the candidate's resume, testimonials from family members, social media comments and scurrilous accusations from anonymous critics. That's why we disagree with those who want to scrap presidential debates, the metaphorical equivalent of a presidential job interview.

Opinion: A Texas federal court decision is the latest hit to voting rights in America

In several places, the United States Constitution says that states may not "deny" or "abridge" the right to vote based on several characteristics: race, sex, inability to pay a poll tax, or age. Given that these constitutional amendments prohibit both "denial" and "abridgement," we would expect those terms to mean different things and for courts to prevent either action. Unfortunately, in a case out of Texas, a federal appeals court just construed the word "abridge" so narrowly as to render it almost a nullity, once again showing the federal courts' hostility to a broad understanding of the fundamental right to vote.

Opinion: Child-free workers aren't selfish. They're being exploited

Six months into the Covid-19 pandemic that has shut down schools and day care centers and forced millions of Americans to work from home, the stressors of our no longer new normal are only growing. As it dawns on many of us that this situation is not an acute emergency but rather a protracted disaster with no end in sight, our collective patience is thinning. Which is perhaps why workplace tensions between people with children at home and those without seem higher than ever.

Jobs in these industries won't come back even after the pandemic is over

The pandemic has shaken up the US workforce. Between February and April, more than 22 million jobs were lost. Including the 1,371,000 gain in August reported this morning, only 48% of those were recovered since April. And unfortunately, the pace of the rapid jobs recovery will not be sustained. The jobs reports later in 2020 are likely to show the recovery unfolding at a more modest pace. I do not expect the economy to add more than three million jobs for the rest of the year. Overall, employment will remain well below pre-pandemic levels for the rest of 2020 and into 2021.

Retired general: Look for this in your next president

If you ask people who haven't served in uniform what it takes to be a great military leader, many would say "strength," "toughness" or "courage." People who have served -- and particularly those who have had the honor of commanding -- will tell you there's a lot more to it. Leaders -- military or otherwise -- need character, intellect, vision, humility and will.

The solution in plain sight that states must choose

This year, as a result of the pandemic, we will likely see a dramatic increase in absentee voting, but some states will not verify or count those ballots before Election Day. This delay could be a major problem for American democracy, sowing doubt in the results and distrust in our electoral process.
