UNC Academic Scandal: A Reminder that Student-Athlete Is a Myth

newrepublic.com — Friday night, my seven-year-old son will go the University of North Carolina men's basketball team's first exhibition game of the season.

newrepublic.com — It seems like a safe assumption that if you're currently a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, you voted for Barack Obama two years ago. And if you're a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate who also served as a delegate for Obama at the 2012 Democratic Convention?

newrepublic.com — The response from political journalists to yesterday's announcement by Jim Webb that he was "seriously looking" at a 2016 White House run fell into two categories.

newrepublic.com — When it comes to foreign policy, Rand Paul contains multitudes. He was for ending foreign aid to Israel before he was against it-before he was for it again but only after ending foreign aid to lots of other countries first.

gq.com — Not so long ago, Rand Paul -son of Ron, "modern-day revolutionary," and practicing ophthalmologist-would have been written off as a harmless political extremist.
