  • Poverty Is Not a State of Mind – “There is a poisonous view among some conservatives that the poor are deficient in character, not cash.”
  • Europe’s Migration Emergency – “Italy says that as many as 800,000 migrants, mainly from Africa, South Asia and Syria, are massing in Libya now with the intent of reaching Italy. Libya’s interim interior minister, Salah Mazek, recently warned the European Union that Libya had had enough of being a way station for migrants heading to Europe, and that it was ‘Europe’s turn to pay.’ Libya and Italy are merely points along a larger migration route. They cannot — and should not have to — cope alone.”
