    Threat to CPB Funding in the News Again

In his remarks at the time, President Lyndon B. Johnson said, "It announces to the world that our nation wants more than just material wealth; our nation wants more than a 'chicken in every pot.' We in America have an appetite for excellence, too. While we work every day to produce new goods and to create new wealth, we want most of all to enrich man's spirit. That is the purpose of this act."

    Questions Linger About Trump's Foreign Business Ties And The Emoluments Clause

    On Inauguration Day, Donald Trump placed his hand on a Bible and promised to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. At the time, many ethics experts waited to see if Trump would divest himself of his multi-billion dollar business interests.

    of the boy she’d come to visit, and they spun
    around, embracing and shrieking with joy.
    Their love set off a piccolo’s vibration.
