Donald Trump wants to build a wall along the Mexican border. But what I’m really worried about is the fact that people are listening to him.
I saw this deal on Groupon for a gym by my house. Usually I only run outside, but lately I’ve been feeling like it might do me some good to change up the routine.
It’s one of the most divisive issues in contemporary American culture. And thanks to a series of well-timed undercover videos, coupled with the onset of the 2016 presidential campaign, abortion is once again at the center of our ongoing national debate.

It’s panic, it’s fear, it’s people that you know and love looking right at you and yet struggling to make the connection between the person they know and the reality of what’s going on.

Right? Wasn’t that exciting? Right?
