Sunday Roundup

This was a week of both progress and regression. First, Sen. Ted Cruz kicked off his presidential campaign and wasted no time showing what kind of candidate he'll be by claiming that, in the wake of 9/11, he stopped listening to rock and switched to country music. Finding a way, 14 years later, to use 9/11 to pander and divide is as impressive as it is cynical. Next, Indiana Governor Mike Pence found an even older way to divide, signing into law a bill that would, essentially, legalize anti-gay discrimination. On the other side of the progress/regression ledger, the five-year anniversary of Obamacare saw the percentage of uninsured adults fall to 12.9 percent. And, in case you missed it (though your daughter might not have), One Direction member Zayn Malik announced his retirement from the mega-group, citing his desire to relax. When even a One Direction member can choose to go in another direction, it's a reminder that we can all break with the past for a happier, healthier future.

No matter how many charities he donates to, or the number of people he's touched with his music, he'll never be seen for the value he brings to the world.
