  • Jersey Jazzman: What Does Campbell Brown Want?

    Jersey Jazzman writes that we know what Campbell Brown is against: bad teachers. She says teachers should have due process protections. So does Arne Duncan.

  • FDA to Update Food Label Serving Sizes

    I strongly support the FDA's proposal to revise the serving size for certain foods and beverages to reflect the way Americans eat today. Labels that list the nutrition information for outdated serving sizes may be deceptive to consumers, and I commend FDA for its recognition of the need to revise the RACCs for specific foods.
