There's a reason Clarence Thomas writes so many solo dissents and concurrences. The second-longest-tenured justice on the Supreme Court has spent more than 25 years staking out a right-wing world view that can generously be described as idiosyncratic.
A few years ago, employees at Glacier National Park noticed that mountain goats were hanging out with visiting tourists, far from the goats' cliffside habitats. Now researchers have figured out why. First: Where there are people, there are fewer predators like bears. Second: Where there are people, there also is pee.
People who work in politics and suffer violent death are not often left in peace by conspiracy theorists. These aides and staffers don't simply die, the theories go — they die for a reason.
The platypus is legendarily weird. It looks a bit like a toothless beaver, but instead of a nose, it has what looks like a rubber flipper.
Ten years ago, I was a reporter assigned to a new fact-checking website no one had heard of. "Politi-What?" press secretaries would say when I called. "Politi-FACT," I would say. Then I'd have to spell it.
If you were given $40 on the condition that you had to spend it on something that would make you really happy, what would you do with the money? Some people might go shopping, others would treat themselves to dinner or a movie, a few might even donate to a cause. But what about using that $40 to "buy" yourself more free …
During remarks at the White House this month to a group of Republican senators, President Donald Trump pushed the visiting lawmakers for repeal-and-replace legislation for the Affordable Care Act.
"Mark, do you need a ride?" the concerned driver asked. "Get in," he said, gesturing to the front seat of his large Suburban, a waft of cool air from his humming air conditioner tempting me to accept.
Few topics are more controversial in Florida than Cuba, a nation that has held fast to communism despite lying 90 miles from the shores of a capitalist superpower. It's a place where startling poverty results from either a longtime U.S. trade embargo or a half-century of communism, depending on one's point of view. …

I hadn't eaten a big or particularly spicy dinner, so I was surprised to be awakened at midnight by a severe burning in my sternum. I'd dutifully taken — so I thought — Omeprazole, an anti-heartburn drug prescribed for me two years ago for a hiatal hernia. As night wore on, the glass of milk didn't help and …
Our sun may be special to us, but among all the stars in the galaxy, it's not unique. According to a study published this month in the journal Science, our beloved star can be classified as an ordinary "solar-type" star, meaning that the internal processes that control its activity are similar to those seen in …
A few weeks back, some old friends invited me to appear on their podcast. They are two stand-up comedians in their mid-30s — I know, the podcast comes as a shock — and their show is a kind of micro focus group, investigating how to be better straight white dudes by picking the brains of guests who don't fit …
