“As of today, I am officially Ebola free,” declared former President Bill Clinton before the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (ECOSOC). Clinton recently visited Liberia, but he arrived three days before the country was officially declared free of the Ebola virus (May 9), and so he had to go through all the official protocols to be sure he was Ebola free before being allowed in public.

If you've done any highway driving in South Carolina recently -- and most people have -- then you're aware of the pathetic condition of many roads throughout the Palmetto State. In numerous places, they're literally crumbling, with chunks of concrete or asphalt falling off onto the shoulders. Potholes, which are not only dangerous but also have the potential to cause expensive damage to cars, are common. Everybody agrees something needs to be done to repair the state's highway system, but the government in Columbia is as dysfunctional on this issue as Washington is on many matters.

WASHINGTON -- One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.

If your marriage is broken and you have children together, there is seldom a full escape from that spouse -- even if you divorce. The broken association could also be with a parent, child, sibling, co-worker or long-time friend.

"I really hate Pinterest." I was shocked by my daughter's statement. She loved Pinterest. She had pinned every part of her daughter, Annie's, birthday party, complete with blue and orange homemade cake bites, darling blue and orange tissue paper flowers, and an Italian soda bar with -- you guessed it -- matching blue and orange straws. So, why the hatred? Why be upset at a social medium that offered so many creative, healthy, inspiring ideas?
