  2. Richard Whitmire: Gov. Cuomo's salvo in the school warsRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday | New York Daily News

    Anyone tuning into Gov. Cuomo's State of the State speech last week heard him speak forcefully in favor of everything the teachers unions abhor: more charter schools, tougher teacher evaluations, an end to teacher tenure as we know it and tax credits for donors who want to help students attend private schools.

Michelle Pantoja, 23, of Brighton Park, attends a DePaul University SGA meet-and-greet with candidates for alderman and mayor Jan. 22. Young voters proved they have power at the polls when they helped usher President Obama into office, but in Chicago they haven't flexed their voting muscle too much in local elections to pick a mayor or the aldermen who have the authority to do everything from licensing ride-sharing companies to hiking liquor and cigarette taxes.

    Sunday | American Reporter

    Why do conservatives still hate President Franklin D. Roosevelt? Why have three generations of right-wingers attacked his accomplishments? It's because FDR stood up to the most concentrated and vicious attacks by the men he called "economic royalists," and came out on top nearly every time. On the night of Oct. 31, 1936, on the eve of his re-election to a second term, FDR stood in Madison Square Garden in New York and laid down the gauntlet to his enemies.

    President Barack Obama said Sunday that he planned to ask Congress to declare much of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as wilderness, including its 1.5-million-acre coastal plain, an area on Alaska's North Slope suspected to contain vast reserves of oil and gas. The designation would forever prevent exploration and production on the coastal plain, but Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said the idea would be dead on arrival in the Republican-led Congress.
