Although I was born more than five years after the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, the horrors of the Second World War were abundantly real - and constantly present - in my childhood.
We spend a lot of time talking about and waiting for a hero to save America -- the next Abe Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt. That's rubbish. The real heroes in America can be found everywhere, right under our noses.
It was worth the wait for Hillary Clinton to speak out. Clinton skipped the platitudes and echoed the uncomfortable truths that black men are routinely profiled, disproportionately pack America's jails and prisons, and get longer sentences than white males.
How do you they lead their people well and subsequently bring about change on a global scale? Andy Hargreaves, Alan Boyle and Alma Harris conducted an extensive seven-year global research study that focused on fifteen high-performing organizations in business, sports and education to find out the answers to these questions.
As Silly Season winds to a close, there were a smattering of 'Obama's on vacation -- how dare he!?!' stories, as usual. Obama has taken less than a third of the days off that President Bush did, but that certainly doesn't stop pundits from complaining every time Obama picks up a golf club.
Three boxes sit on any policymaker's desk: "In," "Out" And "Too Hard." Comprehensive immigration reform typifies the kind of issue that inhabits the "Too Hard" box, where it has sat for many years. As is common to the "Too Hard" box, the need for a fix is glaringly obvious.

"No one likes a frontrunner, especially Democrats," a grassroots activist at Netroots Nation told Politico. That's certainly true. Remember John Glenn in 1984? Howard Dean in 2004? Hillary Clinton in 2008?
For at least the last two decades, the Democratic Party has been defined both by being the party of African-Americans and by an extraordinary timidity when it comes to speaking out about racism. In this regard, the relative silence is not surprising and is unfortunately exactly what is expected.
1. I found lyrics to describe today's Middle East. "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the kin...
An opening is developing for Schweitzer. Crossover support could make him not merely a nuisance to the likely Democratic establishment candidates, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton, but also an irritant to Rand Paul as he tries to keep his father's supporters in the Republican Primary.
