Thursday February 23, 2011 is a date I will never forget. My roommate came home late that evening, and I immediately knew something wasn't right. Always quick to flash a boyish grin, his face instead bore a look of pure fear mixed with adrenaline on his face. He seemed to have aged a decade.

If You Support Trump Because You Like Free Speech, Read This

Whether they admit it to themselves or not, these people don't actually support Trump because he "speaks his mind." They are not merely superfans of free speech who feel political correctness has gone too far.

An Open Letter To Media, On Trump

From focusing on process stories, like how the Trump campaign flubs roll-outs, to slicing and dicing the electorate up, to report on the horserace, you deprive the American people of a real examination of what's happening.

The idea that love is the guiding force serving to bring U.S. citizens together is an old fallacy without historical evidence. This is theological slight of hand, a theologically driven wish without grounding. This nation is built on bodies brutalized and disregarded.

After all, it does cover an octave and one fifth -- not typically in anyone's regular range unless they sing often; and although the poem has four stanzas, only the first is commonly sung today. These words, however, are known to virtually every American older than a second-grader:

Due to challenges with the placement of the cover of my new book, Tuck Me In, the printer decided to pull their contract. The email notifying me of this was easily something I could "react to." I was just about to begin one of my bi-weekly Hour of Focus calls and given the nature of the call I chose in the moment to reply to the email with a simple -- please reconsider.

Once again, I'm in a Cook County Courthouse. How many times have I been here over the last 5 years? I've lost count. Anyway, these are not visits I want to remember. Judge Lopez is a gentle looking man, and soft spoken. But he's been the arbiter of my shattered marriage and, no offense to him, I never want to see him again.
