Last night, I received a personal and significant honor from Susan G. Komen, the Betty Ford Lifetime Achievement Award of Distinction at their Honoring the Promise gala. And today I feel privileged to be the voice on their Huffington Post page.

We're going to focus on the aftermath and ramifications of what has been happening in Ferguson, Missouri for the past few weeks. It even reached international proportions, as both Egypt and Russia got in a few digs at American police and protesters.
It would almost be amusing if it wasn't for the fact that the world is in chaos. And things aren't much better at home where, among other things, we've got a humanitarian crisis at the border.
Jeb Bush claimed, "I'm a skeptic. I'm not a scientist." This mentality is a fundamental misunderstanding of how a representative democracy works.
