  • We can't know the future

    09/28/2011 2:53:59 PM
    A young lady named Christine, who is interning with us, asked me if the RHD that exists today -- a $200 million corporation operating in 14 states and helping thousands of people -- was the vision I had 41 years ago when we first started.And, boy, is that a long...
  • 'The work the rest of us did'

    09/23/2011 11:03:13 AM
    Man, oh man, I love me some Elizabeth Warren.This video is getting a lot of attention, in which Warren -- running for Senate in Massachusetts -- makes the case for fair taxation:"There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody. You built a factory out...
  • Bill's Bistro

    09/20/2011 2:05:35 PM
    This photo is from the dedication of Bill's Bistro at Martin's Run Retirement Center in honor of our caring and generous friend, Bill Hoffman. Bill's mother stayed there in her later years and Bill won over their hearts, as he did all of ours, and as he did with anyone...
  • RHD: Not your typical internship

    09/19/2011 2:13:35 PM
    RHD’s recent group of interns – Keong Tran of Temple University (Budget Department); Roxanne Szal of Rollins College (Human Resources); Eric Bell of Wilmington University (Corporate Operations), Donald Brown of Philadelphia University and Marcella DiSandro of Cabrini College/Moore College of Art (both Marketing & Communications); Emma Bergman of Haverford College...
  • Why the R-word is offensive (& wrong)

    09/15/2011 2:31:34 PM
    I don't even know where to start with Michele Bachmann. The fact that she said something stupid and wrong and offensive is pretty much par for her course; she's been doing this sort of thing for years. Every time I see her on TV, I pay attention. It's like a baseball...
  • Cruel vs. crazy

    09/14/2011 12:58:29 PM
    Most of the discussion about the “Let him die!” moment in this week’s Republican debate has been about the cruelty on display among what presumably is the Republican base. They’re cheering letting the sick die, they’re cheering executions. Even Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he was “taken aback” by the...
  • 'At War for the rest of our lives'

    09/10/2011 10:57:00 AM
    I miss Hunter S. Thompson. I really do. With so many people wondering what we should do on the "anniversary" of 9/11 (and, boy, do I think that's the wrong word), it might be worth looking at the column Hunter wrote on 9/12. He forecast with a truly chilling accuracy just...
  • Virtually a currency

    09/07/2011 12:46:56 PM
    This story on Bitcoin, a virtual medium of exchange designed as an alternative to government issued currency, is interesting. But as Paul Krugman points out:What we want from a monetary system isn’t to make people holding money rich; we want it to facilitate transactions and make the economy as a...
  • Not knowing stuff makes it worse

    09/06/2011 4:48:01 PM
    Our national discussion is too often dominated by people who actually don't understand what they're talking about, particularly when it comes to taxes. This is because too many of them start from "taxes are bad," and work backward. That's when you're going to get yourself in trouble.Witness the flogging USA...
  • The jig is up

    09/03/2011 10:48:00 AM
    Alex Pareene absolutely nails this whole thing:"... conservatives justified their investigations into ACORN by claiming to be rooting out "fraud." They claimed to care solely about punishing actual crimes. When you write that you actually just oppose letting poor people vote, you're giving the game away. You're never supposed to...
