There’s no way to explain the uncommon courage of the Parkland students. But worth noting: their school is named for Marjory Stoneman Douglas, supernova feminist, journalist & environmentalist, who protected the Everglades fr/development by Trump types. She died in 1998, at 108.

Honestly, Millennials might just be America's greatest generation ever. Older folks saved us from Hitler, yes. But this generation might save America from itself.

Day 3: The Cross Lobby is a group of 70 bishops pressing The Episcopal Church to tackle gun violence (). Through protest, preaching & political activism, they embody Jesus' call to be peacemakers. Thank you, bishops!

As Florida insists there's nothing it can do to stop a 19-year-old from buying an AR-15 and shooting up a school, please remember that in 1990 the state arrested a 19-year-old for selling a 2 Live Crew album to a kid.

Got in a bit of a brawl with an NRA, pro-gun devotee. He said my views were based in my hatred for gun owners. No, I replied. I hate guns but love the gun owners. He wasn't amused.

What the indictment reveals is that there was, essentially, an entire shadow campaign - money, structure, organization, ads, metrics, all of it -- run by the Russian government. And it spent much of 216 trying to elect Donald Trump president.
