The uncomfortable problem with Roe v. Wade
The Constitution doesn’t tell us which rights it protects, and now the power to decide that question rests with people like Samuel Alito.I want to state that upfront because the rest of this essay will be highly critical of the Supreme Court’s opinion overturning Roe v.

But our nation's crime problem is in suburban backyards and all across America these days.Suburban crime is not something we think much about, but in these times we should. In 2021 there were 51 homicides in the burbs outside Minneapolis and St Paul, double the number for the previous year, and this is not an outlier. Crime in the America of picket fences and ice cream socials is on the rise. And there is no hiding it.
