NEWS & FEATURES

Over the past few weeks, the Republican Attack Machine has already outdone itself. And yet, says Dan Kennedy, all indications are that the venom-spewing directed at John Kerry will only get worse.

So-called conservative organizations descended on the State House to "protect marriage" and denounce "judicial tyranny." Scratch the surface, however, and you'll find zealous extremists who hate gay people and don't want to see them granted any rights whatsoever. Kristen Lombardi reports.

Americans have long fretted over the racial gap in educational test scores, suggesting all kinds of explanations for why it's so persistent. Now, says Davis S. Bernstein, several experts are offering up a new theory, which Boston's new crop of public-school reformers would be wise to heed.

Americans have become inured to sex on TV. So what to make of The L Word, Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction," and the other dirty stuff we see? Chris Wright has the exposť.

After years spent in broadcasting, Peabody Award-winning journalist Robin Young couldn't be more pleased by where she's landed: as co-host of NPR's noontime newsmagazine, Here and Now. Tamara Wieder talks with her.

In the Phoenix editorial, we caution that you get ready for Bush to drag us through the filthy fantasies of the extreme right, and suggest that African-American leaders should reconsider their shamefully self-serving stand on gay rights.

In "Out There," Kris Frieswick masters the art of doing nothing.
