A number of interesting stories have crossed my screen this week. I haven’t had time to post each individually, but wanted to draw attention to some of them nonetheless.

PRINCETON, NJ — A new Gallup Poll, conducted May 7-10, finds 51% of Americans calling themselves “pro-life” on the issue of abortion and 42% “pro-choice.” This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have [...]
