Jessica Wheeler works the night shift as an oncology nurse at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital in northeastern Pennsylvania—but her patients are usually wide awake. “When they have a new cancer diagnosis or they’re going to have a biopsy in the morning, they don’t sleep,” says the 25-year-old Wheeler (which is not her real name). “They’re scared.” Other patients are in their final hours of life, surrounded by grieving family.

Why Middle-Class Americans Can't Afford to Live in Liberal Cities
On April 2, 2014, a protester in Oakland, California, mounted a Yahoo bus, climbed to the front of the roof, and vomited onto the windshield.

Plaintiffs accuse Exxon of stifling Arkansas oil spill case
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Plaintiffs in an oil spill lawsuit against Exxon Mobil want documents in the case to be public.

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe.
