Exhausted superkids

charlotteobserver.com — There are several passages in the new book "Overloaded and Underprepared" that fill me with sadness for American high school students - the most driven of whom are forever in search of a competitive edge. Some use Adderall. Some cheat. But the part that got to me most was about sleep.

nytimes.com — There are several passages in the new book "Overloaded and Underprepared" that fill me with sadness for American high school students, the most driven of whom are forever in search of a competitive edge. Some use stimulants like Adderall. Some cheat. But the part of the book that somehow got to me most was about sleep.

The Millions of Marginalized Americans

nytimes.com — NOT long ago I had separate chats with two political insiders who offered to fill me in on Jeb Bush's strategy, if he prevails in the primaries, for winning the general election. In each instance I braced for a lengthy exegesis but got only one sentence: He picks John Kasich as his running mate.

To Trump or not to Trump?

seattletimes.com — Bob Kerrey served in the Senate with John McCain, is also a Vietnam veteran and has run for president, so he has been asked incessantly over recent days to appear on television and weigh in on Donald Trump's vile besmirching of McCain's military record. He accepted only one of those invitations, from a friend.

Donald Trump: The tumescent avarice of the vain

rdm.co.za — In Rome about a dozen years ago, I had a long dinner with Donald Trump. Only his name was Silvio Berlusconi. Aren't they essentially the same man? The same myth? They have the same obsession with their wealth. Same need to crow about it. Same belief that it's the irrefutable measure of their genius.

1. O Ya - New York Times

nytimes.com — With the possible exception of a certain turbulent campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, there may be something to these husband-and-wife tag teams. At Ubuntu the Foxes successfully divvy up the courses. At O Ya Tim and Nancy Cushman successfully divvy up the emotional impact they want their restaurant to have on you.

Haste, Hustle and Scott Walker

nytimes.com — In the formal announcement of his presidential campaign on Monday, Scott Walker mentioned God right away, introduced himself as a preacher's son and invoked religion repeatedly, as he has throughout a perpetual candidacy that stretches back to his college days, when he told the Marquette University yearbook: "I really think there's a reason why God put all these political thoughts in my head."
