Democrats shouldn’t panic over polls
Democrats hoped this presidential election would be a cakewalk. In their eyes, the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, spent most of the spring alienating big chunks of the electorate, beginning with women.

Another myth about the Mayas
It was a good story while it lasted: A 15-year-old boy discovered a lost city by theorizing that a modern star map would correlate with ancient Maya settlements. It seemed to fit the common understanding of the Maya as peaceful stargazers, centuries ahead of their time in astronomical observation and deeply mystical. It only makes sense they’d plan their cities to align with constellations.

Clinton’s ‘gimmie’ is now a struggle
Bernie Sanders is raising $1 million a day without trying. He’s easily won a string of primaries, including Oregon most recently. His crowds are large, enthusiastic, determined — sometimes in a chair-throwing kind of way.

A budget for all to see
With the media focused so heavily on the presidential election, perhaps it’s not surprising that few are paying attention as Congress takes up its annual spending bills. Besides, President Barack Obama has said for years that our budget deficit is lessening, so we shouldn’t worry about it anymore, right?
