Adults matter to children. Whether it is the earth, the seas, or the air we breathe, we cannot destroy our planet's assets and hope to survive, let alone prosper. These young at risk are also our "assets," whose untapped potential is being wasted.

It's not just politicians: Wealthy and powerful financiers regularly show a level of hubris that makes the pols look modest. They say a lot of ridiculous things on a regular basis, but my colleague Lauren Windsor broke a story this week that shows one of these masters of the universe, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, at his arrogant worst.

The trial of Abacus Federal Savings Bank is finally over, and the verdict is "not guilty" on all counts. This outcome should be a tremendous relief to advocates of Wall Street accountability, and the fact that the case got as far as it did should be an extraordinary embarrassment to District Attorney Cyrus Vance and his office.

As the U.S. Supreme Court has explained, corporations are persons just like my readers. The only difference between a corporate person and a human person is that when a human person breaks the law, the human person depending on the offense, may go to jail.

The promise of America is that anyone who works hard and plays by the rules can earn a middle-class life. That promise is betrayed when the system provides a tiny class of Americans with special treatment, including a get-out-of-jail-free card when they commit fraud to make untold millions.

There are narratives in conceptual art we just stop moving for. We find ourselves swiftly engaged. This is what I felt when I saw Sara Shaoul's "Chase Manhattan Plaza" installation which was her thesis project for Hunter's MFA program.
