          The Public Option Is Back: Our Enthusiasm Should Be Tempered
    
          September 20, 2016
    
          "A public option will be only one more player in our costly, fragmented system of funding health care," writes McCanne. "It alone will bring us none of the important features of a single payer system such as efficiency, equity, systemic cost savings, and universality."

          Why The NAACP Moratorium On Charters Really Matters To Our Public Schools
    
          September 20, 2016
    
          The National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peoples, the nation’s oldest and most highly recognized civil rights organization, called for a national moratorium on charter schools this summer. Soon after, a bipartisan chorus of charter supporters cried foul attempting to present the so- called choice offered by charters, as well as other attributes of corporate education reform, as the next logical step in the Civil Rights Movement.

          The Invisble Workforce: Death, Discrimination and Despair in N.J.'s Temp Industry
    
          September 20, 2016
    
          The business of providing temps to factories and warehouses is booming in New Jersey, which has one of the highest concentration of temps in the country . But New Jersey's "temp towns" have a dark side. Workers say this sector of the temporary employment industry is rife with mistreatment. They complain about low pay or not being paid at all, rampant racial and sexual discrimination, unsafe working conditions and a system that seems to exploit them at every turn.

          'Snowden' Isn’t Paranoid Enough
    
          September 20, 2016
    
          Snowden, Oliver Stone’s new film is a perfunctory biopic about the NSA’s international surveillance programs that lacks his trademark fearlessness. The film feels trite in its efforts to depict America’s ensnarement in the creepy web of online spying.
