This whole “they’re only here to do the jobs Americans won’t do” thing just doesn’t fly. Dubya was wrong, and that philosophy still is about as attractive as a Porta-Potty on a hot day in Juarez.

Leading gun rights groups say Washington, D.C.'s issuance of a limited number of gun carry permits has not lessened their objections to the city's law.

Simulations show that, if just 25 percent of cars on the road are self-driving, the article says, there will be a lot more delays at intersections. It’s not surprising that the transit crowd would want to try to discredit the idea […]
