The riots in Washington DC and the riots in Seattle have revealed some troubling hypocrisy. Many of those who were for one were against the other. While the impetus behind them was different, the justifications people invoked were the same. This inconsistency is what happens when we ignore principles in favor of justifying outcomes.

Like every year in the 90s, 1991 was a year of incredible change. From the fall of the Soviet Union, to the birth of the World Wide Web, it was a roller coaster ride of exciting new paths being forged as we were barreling toward the end of the century. And more and more we were being consumed by a new type of round the clock news coverage that perm…

The pandemic’s US death toll shows no signs of abating and the holiday season’s spike will likely dwarf any surge that came before it.

And did anything actually come out of the Ice Bucket C…

Joe Biden has been a public figure for decades but he’s far from an open book. For a man who has been in national politics since the age of 29 and has made multiple attempts at the presidency (third time’s a charm) it’s remarkable how much he has been willing to change.
