Opinion | How Larry Nassar got away with it

When celebrated Olympic gymnast Simone Biles on Wednesday recounted to the U.S. Senate sexual abuse she suffered for years at the hands of former USA Gymnastics physician Larry Nassar, she emphasized that the problem went beyond a single predator. Biles blamed an “entire system” that helped Nassar get away with it, including adults charged with protecting her. This system, according to her testimony and that of her fellow Olympic champions and survivors, spanned the sporting world, educational institutions and law enforcement. If we’re honest, however, it encompasses the entire society — reflecting a longstanding willful blindness to harm inflicted upon

Boxer Manny Pacquiao to run for Philippine president

MANILA — Boxing star Manny Pacquiao said Sunday he will run for president of the Philippines next year, after railing against corruption in government and what he calls President Rodrigo Duterte’s cozy relationship with China. Pacquiao accepted the nomination of his political allies during the national assembly of the faction he leads in the ruling PDP-Laban Party, days after a rival faction nominated Duterte’s long-time aide, Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, as its presidential candidate. That faction nominated Duterte for vice president, a move that critics called a cynical ploy by Duterte to retain power. Go declined the nomination, but the

Opinion | Supreme Court justices upset at perceptions of partisanship need to look in the mirror

Law and politics are different things. Judges do law and politicians do politics. At least, that’s what some of the Supreme Court’s current members would like us to believe. The justices should carefully consider the types of rhetoric they employ in defending their positions and criticizing those of their colleagues — both in their written opinions and in extrajudicial statements. In recent remarks delivered at the University of Louisville, Justice Amy Coney Barrett pushed back against media characterizations of the court’s decision-making as politically motivated, insisting that “judicial philosophies are not the same as political parties.” She urged the public
