Review: Tom Miller’s ‘Philospher’s Flight’ turns gender roles upside down

By KIM CURTIS “The Philosopher’s Flight” (Simon & Schuster), by Tom Miller Rarely does a novel begin with rollicking fierceness that grabs readers from its opening lines and doesn’t loosen its grip or lessen its hold all the way through. “The Philosopher’s Flight” is the debut novel from Tom Miller, an emergency room doctor from Madison, Wisconsin, and he’s woven a fanciful tale set against the historic backdrop of post-World War I America. This book cover image released by Simon & Schuster shows “The Philosopher’s Flight,” a novel by Tom Miller.

Trump touts ‘last chance’ for immigration solution

By Ed O’Keefe and Matt Zapotosky | Washington Post WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Tuesday cast the debate to revamp the nation’s immigration laws as the “last chance” for action as the Senate weighed competing proposals to legalize millions of young undocumented immigrants and fulfill his goal of bolstering U.S.-Mexico border security.

Utah Senate committee ices proposed gender-based wage gap study

SALT LAKE CITY — A proposal to study gender-based wage gaps in state government was met with antagonism in a Utah legislative meeting Tuesday. Members of the Senate Business and Labor Committee didn’t debate the merits of SB152 as much as pepper Sen. Luz Escamilla, D-Salt Lake City, with procedural questions about the bill. After a 20-minute discussion, the committee abruptly adjourned without taking any action. Sen. Dan Hemmert, R-Orem, said it was an issue for lawmakers to study over the summer. Technical issues aside, Escamilla said some of her colleagues appear to have ideological problems with the bill. “I’m not going to lie. It’s not going to be an… Read More
