Last week legislators voted in favor of equality, which means the hard work is finished and only a few procedural steps are left before marriages can start. Barring any 11th-hour surprises, weddings are scheduled to start in Delaware on July 1, and in Rhode Island on Aug. 1.
This week, we started out with an update from Cathy Marino-Thomas, President of Marriage Equality USA, about the recent win in Rhode Island and debates in Nevada and elsewhere.

Marijuana decriminalization is a tiny Band-Aid that has been touted as a quick fix for state governments across the country. Want to deal with overflowing prisons? Decriminalize. Want to make citizens happy? Decriminalize. Unfortunately, a Band-Aid is pretty bad at healing a bleeding artery
Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to Alex and Ani's Lifestyle Editor, Corporate Historian and co-author Cyd McKenna about fashion, the environment and how Alex and Ani's mission to impact fashion and so much more is a message we can all relate to on Earth Day and every day.
In the 20th century, we built a strong and thriving middle class that was based on a simple premise -- if you worked hard and played by the rules, you could afford to provide for your family, own a home, send your kids to college, and maybe even put a little away for retirement.

Want to live like a Rockefeller on your next vacation? Want a voyeuristic peek into the world of the rich and powerful? These iconic resorts across ...
Republicans argue that our revenue discussion should be over. They'll say that we already agreed to raise tax rates a little bit on the rich, so now we should only be cutting spending. But they ignore that America gives away through the tax code just as much money as it collects.
Unless people have been hiding under a rock this past couple months, they know that more than 55 percent of voters in Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana on November 6. Here is what I think we can reasonably accomplish by the end of 2013.
Much of the problem has to do with language. Bradley and his friends tend to use the word "freakin" about as often as many teenagers use the word "like." As everyone knows, if you say the word "f*ck" once, it can have a strong dramatic impact.

This past year was undeniably the most productive 365-day period in the history of the marijuana policy reform movement. This list focuses on the biggest marijuana-related policy accomplishments in the U.S. in the last year.
