    When police shot and killed Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., this week, law enforcement officials there immediately called for the Department of Justice to take over the investigation. When police shot and killed Philando Castile during a traffic stop near St. Paul, Minn., Wednesday night, immediate calls came for the federal government to take over that case, too. As Baltimore watches the beginning of yet another trial of a police officer indicted in connection with the death of Freddie Gray, we can see the appeal. The objectivity, thoroughness and independence of the investigations into his death have been questioned from the start and from all sides.

    Our privacy rights are under continual assault from out-of-control government. Whether from the National Security Agency “hoovering” up our telephone call data and various other electronic communications and documents, the FBI amassing a facial recognition database with hundreds of millions of photos, including those taken from state driver’s licenses, local police mounting license plate trackers on patrol cars and using “stingray” devices to mimic cell towers and intercept data and track hundreds of cellphones at a time or Transportation Security Administration agents needlessly harassing travelers at airport security checkpoints, governments at all levels routinely violate our Fourth Amendment rights to be free from illegal searches and seizures.

    For two years in a row, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made headlines for all the wrong reasons. After the debacle of putting forth only white nominees for Oscar consideration in the acting categories, prompting a brutal Twitter hashtag #OscarSoWhite, the academy has taken major steps to diversify its membership.

    What if there were a vaccine for young people that could help avert thousands of cancer cases, saving untold American lives? Wouldn’t you expect to hear a strong recommendation from your pediatrician that your son or daughter take that shot?

    WASHINGTON — The report was so “seismic” — Daniel Patrick Moynihan’s word — that Lyndon Johnson’s administration released it on the Fourth of July weekend, 1966, hoping it would not be noticed. But the Coleman report did disturb various dogmatic slumbers and vested interests. And 50 years on, it is pertinent to today’s political debates about class and social mobility.

    Donald Trump gave a speech about economic policy last week. Just about every factual assertion he made was wrong, but I’m not going to do a line-by-line critique. What I want to do instead, is talk about the general thrust: the candidate’s claim to be on the side of American workers.
