Fitness, aging populations, and third parties  
* Gallery: Syria in ruins.
* Will we ever have another peacetime president?
* Good read: the failure of the left and why third parties aren't the answer.
* A post-mortem of the American century.
* Intrinsic problem: right wing media failed the right wing.
* "Populations are aging mainly because people are having fewer and fewer babies, not because life expectancy is increasing."
* A college gives up on sports in favor of fitness for every student.

"There will be plenty of talk in coming weeks about the Republican Party, the conservative movement, racial demographics, and whether they'll inspire significant changes in policy or philosophy. That conversation is more important than this one.

"It would still be prudent for conservatives to take some advice that seems blindingly obvious, but apparently isn't: Stop letting prominent voices of movement conservatism get away with saying things that are a) actually just racist; b) demagogic race-baiting; or c) so obviously tone-deaf that anyone with common sense can see how terrible it would sound. Why is that so hard?!
