Guns kill as many Americans every five weeks as did 9/11 -- yet Jeb Bush concludes after the Oregon massacre that nothing can or should be done. Lowry agrees while Reagan doesn't, citing his father. Then they debate Boehner, McCarthy, Planned Parenthood, Syria and Trump.
We're excited and honored to work with Urban Dove, a New York charity that provides young people, regardless of their economic or social background, the critical skills needed to develop into strong, successful adults who are economically independent.
With reforms like these who'll be surprised by the next high-profile incident of police abuse? Not me.
"¡Vivos se los llevaron! ¡Vivos los queremos!" These words echoed around the globe this past weekend, as September 26 marked one year since 43 students were forcefully disappeared by government authorities in Guerrero, Mexico.

The exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art John Singer Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends is in its final days, ending October 4th. I was fortunate to be invited to give two talks during the exhibit examining Sargent's work from an artist perspective.
Whether you spend three days or three years in New York City, there is always something awaiting you just around the corner, a gem you have overlooked or never knew existed.
