Congress must fix two desirable features of U.S. immigration policy that are skewed by election-year politicking. Stalled are proposals to allow more visas for college graduates and, in a separate program, for seasonal workers. Both initiatives are long-running and benefit the U.S. economy. They're among the few U.S. immigration policies that work well. But they're not getting needed attention - leaving adrift businesses ranging from Microsoft Corp. to the Grand Hotel on Michigan's Mackinac Island. ... [full story]

The word "schizophrenia" literally means "split mind." That is, at best, an incomplete description of the disease. But it's a strangely apt summary of how insurance companies cover mental and physical illness. People with mental illness often face insurance limits and higher co-payments than those who have physical illnesses. For example, health insurance policies don't limit the number a days a heart disease patient can be hospitalized - as long as a doctor deems it ... [full story]

Although protecting human health is one of the core objectives of the Environmental Protection Agency, evaluating the safety of chemicals used in products for children apparently isn't a high priority item at the federal agency. That doesn't make much sense, especially in this consumer-conscious era. A Journal Sentinel investigation revealed that the agency is not evaluating the compounds found in products - such as flame retardants in mattresses and car seats - to determine whether ...

A spokeswoman for President George W. Bush said quick action is needed on the major overhaul of the federal financial regulatory system unveiled by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson Monday - but Paulson correctly called for long and careful deliberation on it. The most troubling aspect of his proposal is that the Federal Reserve System, the nation's central bank, could be divested of its direct power to regulate commercial banks and given more authority to regulate ...

In the middle of a grinding credit crunch, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson on Monday unveiled plans for a massive overhaul of the way the government polices the nation's financial system. It's a thoughtful approach worthy of full debate and discussion, but even Paulson acknowledges that it will take time - past the expiration of this administration - to carefully consider the plan, much less get it approved by Congress. In the meantime, the so-called blueprint ... [full story]

The Bush administration's plan to streamline and strengthen regulation of the ailing U.S. financial system had barely been leaked last week before critics denounced it as being woefully naive in its reliance on the self-policing, self-correcting powers of the free market. The collective irrationality seen from much of Wall Street during the housing bubble certainly doesn't inspire confidence in laissez-faire. Nevertheless, while we are not sure if the plan outlined by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson ... [full story]

The Bush administration's blueprint for revamping the nation's financial system is a tacit admission that the system is broken, but the plan rolled out Monday by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson fails to make all the needed repairs. Still, it's a good place to start, and some of the recommendations deserve immediate attention from Congress. The plan would consolidate the hodgepodge of regulatory agencies that date as far back as the Civil War while adding new ... [full story]

Authorities in Marathon County, Wis., have no choice but to pursue the investigation and possible charges in the death of 11-year-old Madeline Kara Neumann, who died March 23 of complications from untreated diabetes after her parents refused to seek medical help for the stricken girl. Religious beliefs do not supersede a parent's responsibility to seek life-saving treatment for a child. And a profound belief in prayer, which even some medical professionals think can have some ...

Tired of banging her head against Hollywood's thick brick walls due to subtle forms of ("non-existent") discrimination facing all film and television actresses over 40, Judith Chapman packed up her makeup and most of her belongings and moved 125 miles east to the spectacular desert setting of Palm Springs, Calif., in 1991.   JUDITH CHAPMAN - Judith Chapman stars as Gloria Bardwell in the daytime drama 'The Young and the Restless.'
