Around the World in One Penny Black

Mon, 01 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT2017-05-01T04:00:00Z

You may use the comment thread on this page to celebrate the Penny Black, generally recognized as the world’s first adhesive postal stamp, and first issued 177 years ago on Monday. You may also use this thread to pursue a freewheeling, inherently off-topic discussion.

First world postal stamp ever issued : the Penny Black, Great Britain, 1840.

Bret Stephens’ First Column for the New York Times Is Classic Climate Change Denialism

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 14:52:15 GMT2017-04-30T14:52:15Z

The weekend after the New York Times announced it was hiring Bret Stephens—a conservative formerly of the Wall Street Journal whom some consider a climate-change denier—to be its new columnist, I got into a fight with my mother. She was defending his hiring, arguing that he held views that many people hold, and that perhaps allowing him to put them on the pages of the New York Times would allow the paper to regain its position as a news source that can be trusted by people on both sides of the political spectrum. She was right that the public no longer seems to agree on what truth is, but she was wrong that bringing Stephens on would help us resolve this.

100 Days, 100 Nights, to Know a Man’s Heart

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 22:43:17 GMT2017-04-28T22:43:17Z

It’s almost time. Tomorrow, if tomorrow comes, we can all put on those “I Survived 100 Days of the Trump Presidency” T-shirts—including Donald himself, of course. “It’s an artificial barrier. It’s not very meaningful,” Trump protested of that marker this week, shortly before trying to cram in an overhaul of health care (again), a simple but lucrative-for-him tax reform plan, and a brief threat to launch the Great Canadian–American Milk Wars. Not meaningful? Easy for him to say. We had to write about it.

The Angle: Judge Love Edition

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 21:54:32 GMT2017-04-28T21:54:32Z

Judges, save us: Donald Trump's battle against the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which he cannot win, shows how inadequate his “vague and sloppily drafted” executive orders really are, Dahlia Lithwick argues. “Time and again he asserts that there is some virtue in stripping away all nuance and legal meaning from his official acts as president,” Lithwick observes. In court, that argument won't fly.

9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judges Sidney Thomas, Carlos Bea, and Alex Kozinski look on during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on March 16 in Washington, D.C.

When’s the Vote?

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 20:42:23 GMT2017-04-28T20:42:23Z

Rep. Tom MacArthur, the New Jersey congressman who authored the amendment that brought the American Health Care Act back to life earlier this week, made a very simple point Thursday afternoon when asked if Republicans had enough votes to pass the bill.

House Speaker Paul Ryan talks to reporters during his weekly news conference on Thursday in Washington.
