    FERGUSON: Never fear, Congress has fix for the VA

    It’s a popular sentiment these days to say that that the U.S. Congress is completely incapable of getting anything done. It is divided into two warring camps that can’t agree on anything. Plus it’s an election year for many of them, so they are much too busy campaigning to do...

    FERGUSON: This just in: racists exist

    There is something about an election year that seems to make the rampant nonsense that passes for political discourse in Washington hit increasingly impressive levels of stupidity.

    DR. CUMMINGS: An afternoon to remember

    When I told my long-hair hippie friends in Berkeley, Calif., in the early ‘70s that I was moving my family to Macon, they said: “Cool, dude. That’s the home of the Allman Brothers.” They knew. And if you lived around Macon in 1970, you heard their music blasting out of...
