Peter Alexander Meyers

As Donald Trump was draping himself in the corpse of the Republican Party, Ted Cruz chose to personify a moment of political apocalypse. It was a most astonishing and narcissistic turn of anti-politics. Yet it was aimed to elevate him further. A martyr out of time with a clear vision of 2020.

One month after he ended his own presidential bid, Graham addressed the question of which GOP frontrunner he could support, in pretty graphic fashion: "If you nominate Trump and Cruz I think you get the same outcome. Whether it's death by being shot or poisoning, does it really matter?"

Billionaire Richard Branson does not do anything "small" or "quietly." His move into the cruise line industry is sure to bring much needed competition and his signature "Virgin" quality and style. As a lawyer who represents people who have been injured during a cruise, I just hope he makes them safe.

An empty stomach and discouraged heart are hard to overcome. I urge my sisters and brothers who are hurting to see that, hopefully, the Jenner story is ultimately about raising you up where you stand this second, not about putting you down for what's in your purse or wallet.

I hope that Bruce is happy now that he has shared his story with the world, but more importantly, I hope that people were inspired by his courage to be vulnerable.
