Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. ...
Painful, stupid, trite . . . America! There was more than one loser in the big debate, but that's no surprise. I hardly expected any issues of substa...
The good news is I may not need to get onto Elon Musk's Mars expedition after all. The first Trump-Clinton debate had loomed as a potential hinge in h...
There has been relatively little speculation this election year about what could possibly be the "October surprise." In a normal presidential election year, this is a fun subject to speculate about when the actual news from the campaign trail gets dull and repetitive. This year, of course, that hasn't exactly happened.
I was in eighth grade when politics first crossed my radar. The presidential election between Barack Obama and John McCain was just beginning to surf...
SXSL is thrilling not only for gathering creative thinkers and entrepreneurs in our nation's capital, but for its focus on doing good and inciting change. I'm honored to take part in this event that challenges us to make a positive difference in our country.

Washington, September 23, 2016. Power is an old game in this city, but a style in play last week made all others seem crude. Aung San Suu Kyi, the effective head of state of Burma, was in town, and in her presence, the American government performed at peak form.
Please register and vote for Hillary Clinton. Imagine the alternative. If not, it's coming out of your grade.
Rouhani made it clear that despite all of the steps we've taken, including acknowledging them positively at the Assembly of Nations in NY, nothing we've done has thawed our relationship or helped to improve the security of people living in the areas ruled by Iran or its terror proxies.
Don't be fooled. The current air blitz by Russian jets, Syrian government troops and Iranian-organized ground forces would have happened without the bogus ceasefire that officially ended last week. If President Barack Obama didn't realize that when he made a ceasefire deal with Russia, then Vladimir Putin bamboozled him.
Well, the first presidential debate is a done deal, and as always I like to quickly type out my own personal reactions before reading everyone else's, to give you an opinion uninfluenced by the herd mentality of the rest of the media.
Even as we're all hypnotized by the presidential race, and the candidates' rhetorical responses to these incidents, we have to recognize that these issues, that impact us directly, that move us to tears and to march in our streets -- are almost exclusively controlled by state and local leaders. Not our president.
"I'm not as successful as I thought I would be by now." Have you ever thought these words to yourself?
