J im Donaldson is 38 years old, the separated single father to 8-year-old Jacob and “5-going-on-35”-year-old Lily. Until recently, he had a good job with a large oil company. But when his son got croup that developed into pneumonia three years ago, all that changed. Donaldson asked for time off and was denied.  “I had to choose between the job and the child,” he recalls. “It was a very easy decision. You can replace a job, but you can't replace a child.” But losing that job started a downward spiral that was hard to stop.

Hillary Clinton's tactical retreat in her soft apology and meet-up with President Obama at Martha's Vineyard, after her ill-timed criticism of his "failure" in aiding Syrian refugees, indicates she may not be quite ready to put her best foot forward for the 2016 presidential race. Her remark in her interview with The Atlantic magazine, otherwise fulsome in praise of him, came at a time when Mr. Obama is struggling with a full plate of foreign policy woes. Inadvertently or not, it seemed politically self-serving, as she seems bent on shoring up her own acceptance with the more liberal elements in her own party.

When developing countries need to deepen a canal for irrigation or navigation, they frequently call on Ellicott Dredges, a 129-year-old Baltimore-based maker of dredging equipment. To sell their massive, multimillion-dollar machines abroad, Ellicott Dredges often turns to the U.S. Export-Import Bank — an obscure federal agency that facilitated more than $37 billion in exports last year. The 80-year-old bank, a New Deal-era institution that provides loans and credit guarantees, is now at the center of a debate between conservative Republicans and the rest of Congress.
