I looked up all the answers to your questions so you don't have to; let's talk about free speech. President's Twitter got deleted. Then some other stuff. Y'all mad? Let me tell you why you shouldn't be. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging … Continue reading Let’s talk about free speech
What are the odds that in the same week I decide to have a voice again, I am left speechless by a random coup...? Typical Wednesday afternoon after the year(s) we had and continue to have, it seems. Anyway... I used to be able to write really good posts. I figured out what happened. I've … Continue reading speechless again
March's theme for our year of sustainability based on this plan is about empowering women. I love that. I love that in a year of mostly focusing specifically on environmental practices, we are taking the time to talk about gender and race and how environment is tied in with all of life. I got really … Continue reading Empowering
This one feels unfinished, but I think it's unfair to hold things in until they're perfect. My standard of perfection I've had for my work has prevented me from sharing things for 23 years. When gun violence hits close to home and you type into your phone on your train ride back to your apartment … Continue reading Crown Heights

I have been wanting to write this for a while. I still am not sure I have all the words ready, but it's time to try. I watched this video tonight about how no one working a full time minimum wage job can afford a two-bedroom apartment. Anywhere in America. And, of course, the video … Continue reading earn your wages
I've decided to occasionally do a "from the archives" post where I dig up something I wrote that may or may not pertain to current news and apply new knowledge to it. I think it'll be exciting. Today I'm choosing one that relates to this current news item. Read before continuing, please! Or not, but … Continue reading From the Archives: Immigration
I'll try to keep this brief. I'm very tired of online discussions. This is meant to be informational and straightforward and I've linked several other resources within the post. Let's just get straight to the point. Number one: I do not like abortion, but I do not support making abortion illegal. In practice, abortion law … Continue reading Pro-life
If you've been with me for a while, you've probably read one of my response blogs before. I like sarcasm. I think it's a fun way to make a statement and usually it's harmless. Response blogs are childish. I've tricked you with the title of this post. No one needs to get on my level. … Continue reading Get on my level
"The truth is we are supposed to love the hippies, the liberals, and even the Democrats, and that God wants us to think of them as more important than ourselves. Anything short of this is not true to the teachings of Jesus." - Donald Miller It's been a few weeks since post one about this … Continue reading Blue Like Jazz. Two.
