Another International Women’s Day is here. Even though it does not receive the attention that it deserves, International Women’s Day has received official recognition in this country.

Those politicians who are claiming that killing the Keystone XL Pipeline will kill jobs get big donations from the oil companies.
The U.S. Women’s Hockey Team may have shed a tear as they received their silver medals, but their success in being second best on the planet still represents a memorable and laudable Olympic effort. For them to train, practice, play, and succeed at the Olympic level is an amazing feat for which they as athletes – and we as Americans - should be proud.
