An Open Letter to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott

Harry Cook | November 26, 2014 | Gay Voices
At present I'm living in Los Angeles, a wonderful place where gay people can get married legally and have the same rights as our straight counterparts. Meanwhile, Australia is painfully behind when it comes to marriage equality. I'd like to ask why you think it appropriate that Australia exempt itself from the progress we see in the rest of the Western world.

The jersey, of course, is black skin. A jersey we can never take off.

The Meaning of Friendsgiving

Tyler Kingkade | November 26, 2014 | College
Friendsgivings seems to me like a uniquely 20-something experience, in which unmarried young adults with no children get together to eat, unsure if they're on the right track since they can't afford to fly home for the holiday.

How Local Auto Shows Can Save You Money

Brian Moody | November 25, 2014 | Business
If you're primarily concerned with getting a bargain, wait until the all-new model is about to hit, then look for a low-mileage 2013 or 2014 model. Those cars tend to be worth a little less when a newer, fresher version is introduced.

A Sad Night for America

Jim Wallis | November 27, 2014 | Politics
We now all have the chance to examine the evidence -- released last night -- in the grand jury's decision not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson, who fired multiple bullets into Michael Brown. But the verdict on America's criminal justice system is already in for many Americans: guilty, for treating young black men differently than young white men.

Beverly Hills is not only a smallish affluent city adjacent to the larger Los Angeles in the state of California, it is also 'a state of mind,' an asylum of celebrity, elegance and sophistication.

'Is it Time to Do a James Baldwin?'

Malek Mouzon | November 25, 2014 | Black Voices
Deep down, whether I want to admit or not, I know the truth. The racism that James Baldwin knew and ultimately made him leave the country isn't really gone. It's just changed its form.

America's Infrastructure Disinvestment Will Slow the Development of a Sustainable Economy

Steven Cohen | November 24, 2014 | Green
Throughout America, disinvestment in infrastructure is far more typical. America's focus seems to be on individual spending, not investment in community resources. We refuse to tax ourselves and the signs of neglect are everywhere.

Shaping a Show One Pixel at a Time

George Heymont | November 24, 2014 | Arts
As a musical sampling of the sounds that emerged from Motown, one can't do better than starting with "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Bye Bye Baby," "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," and moving on through the catalog to "I'll Be There," "What's Going On," and "You Are The Sunshine of My Life."

Designing Dream Cars of Immense Beauty and Desire

Soren Petersen | November 22, 2014 | Los Angeles

Brad Liberti | November 21, 2014 | Gay Voices
To this day, Leon Acord marvels at how successfully his beloved Old Dogs made the transition from his brain to the page to the screen. He credits his "dream team" of actors for making this possible and once again wonders what he's done karmically to deserve such luck. I tell him what he did was write a fantastic script.

Amanda Gorman | November 21, 2014 | Teen
As I stepped up to that mic and dared to read my writing at the workshop, I learned that poetry is voice, and the courage to use it. With this courage, we free ourselves and become capable of influencing others.
