I reside in the District of Columbia, our nation’s Capitol. And while DC and Official Washington are steps from each other, it seems as if they’re worlds apart. Official Washington’s roads are clean, monuments welcome tourists, and the economy is bustling. In DC, crime is rampant, the unemployment rate is staggering, and regard for one […]

World AIDS Day: Don’t Just Blog/Tweet About It, Be About It

The Penn State child rape scandal hurts my heart every time I hear more about the horrible details of how Sandusky destroyed the innocence of likely dozens of young boys and betrayed the public trust.
