Ben Bradlee Dead: Legendary Washington Post Editor Led Watergate Coverage

In a charmed life of newspapering, Ben Bradlee seemed always to be in just the right place.

An Open Letter to HBCU Graduates

Dear HBCU graduates, Although most of us have never met, we share a special bond as graduates of one of America's historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). With few exceptions, these are the places that sprouted from sweat-soaked seeds planted by the sons and daughters of former slaves, sharecroppers and subsistence farmers whose belief in the power of education confounded the plans of plantation owners, straw bosses and Southern white politicians. HBCUs were the places that...

All The Wealth The Middle Class Accumulated After 1940 Is Gone

Here's more proof the middle class is dying. The middle-class share of American wealth has been shrinking for the better part of three decades and recently fell to its lowest level since 1940, according to a new study by economists Emmanuel Saez of the University of California, Berkeley, and Gabriel Zucman of the London School of Economics.
