Linda Bergthold: Is Health Care Part of the "Fairy Dust" Talk About the Fiscal Cliff?
I'm getting really tired of the hysteria over this so-called, somewhat media created, "fiscal cliff." But I do think we are in for some changes in health care as a result of the discussions going on in Washington so here's what you should expect.
Richard Trumka: Listen to the Voters -- and Save Yourselves
It's time for House Speaker John Boehner and the Republican leadership to stop holding America's middle class hostage and instead join Democrats in saying "No" to another tax cut for the rich.
Jared Bernstein: Move Over Simpson-Bowles... There's a New Plan in Town
The Center for American Progress has a smart, simple, progressive, and politically plausible new fiscal plan out and it's worth a close look. It's actually pretty Clintonesque.
Will Bunch: Bob Costas Learns the Right Time to Talk About Guns in America: Never
So if Barack Obama and Mitt Romney were afraid to talk about guns (and they were), no wonder America was so shocked when Bob Costas spoke Sunday night, shocked that a man in his position didn't know the right time to talk about guns in this great nation.

Oprah Winfrey: Teaching Is My Calling
At the end of each school year in South Africa -- which is right now -- I teach a class to the 12th graders at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.

Alice E. Vincent: Kate Middleton's Womb Shouldn't Be Up for Public Discussion
Fertility rights are hugely important. But what's happening in (nee) Middleton's middle shouldn't be up for public discussion. It's fantastic that another royal is on the way but it would be even better if the press could stop the speculation on how it's gestating for the next half year.
