Marlo Thomas: Tragedy in Ohio: When the Bullied Strike Back
Bullying is not, as some allege, some mandatory rite of passage that young people must endure on their journey to adulthood. This is not "kids just being kids." This is a murderous game that young people are playing all across this country, and without immediate intervention by adults -- parents, teachers, community leaders -- we will continue to see more and more deaths, and the slow and painful obliteration of a generation. It is tempting to call the horrid news from Ohio this week a wake-up call, but that is both disingenuous and naive. We've had far too many wake-up calls already.

Ted Kaufman: Greece's Debt Crisis Bodes Ill for Us All
There are lots of catch-22s in this terrible crisis, and they should have been taken into account when the eurozone was first established.
