E-cigarette makers must stop false advertising

While I certainly don’t look down on anyone who smokes e-cigarettes, I do look down on and am disappointed with the misleading marketing that these companies have used to lead consumers, some of these consumers being young kids, to false conclusions about the safety of their product. 


Idealism cannot be limited to Olympic season

Yes, there are truly despicable and corrupt goings-on in executive offices all around the world. We must not allow those deeds to muddle our opinions of the wider populations of these countries. The Olympic games serve as a biannual olive branch, if only for a few weeks. 


America needs to heal our divisions

Both CHIP and DACA have saved thousands of lives, and using these programs to get what they want in the end was egregious.

If you haven’t been invited to this event, I regret to inform you that tickets are completely sold out.
