Donald Trump is holding up a mirror to the Republicans, and the ugliness in that mirror is precisely what Americans need to see and understand.
We have unwittingly created the perfect Darwinian training ground. Beware -- the creatures that adapt to these pressures come back stronger than ever before.
Growing up in a small northern town shaped me in ways untold. As a little girl my family lived in an apartment above a hardware store on our small...
Unlike Donald's politics of fear that appeals to our worst instinct, many New Yorkers see their undocumented neighbors as friends and family contributing to the state as opposed to an invading army of rapists.
The Department of Homeland Security was formed in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Accordingly, counter terrorism has always lain at the heart of the Department's mission. But in the years since, both the enemies the U.S. fights and the way we fight have changed dramatically.

For me, polite conversation gets real when you dance on people's issues. But in this conversation, I was called out for being insensitive to the life experiences of my conservative interlocutors.
