#DUMP TRUMP

Donald Trump is the gift that keeps on giving. He's one of those living examples that reality is truly stranger than fiction. And ultimately, as he careens through the Republican field like a wrecking ball through a demolition site, he will prove to be a benefit to our public discourse and political future. Like castor oil or prunes, he's a necessary purgatory for the worse within us.

CARTEL LAND

CARTEL LAND

With unprecedented access, CARTEL LAND is a riveting, on-the-ground look at the journeys of two modern-day vigilante groups and their shared enemy – the murderous Mexican drug cartels.
 
In the Mexican state of Michoacán, Dr. Jose Mireles, a small-town physician known as "El Doctor," leads the Autodefensas, a citizen uprising against the violent Knights Templar drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Meanwhile, in Arizona's Altar Valley – a narrow, 52-mile-long desert corridor known as Cocaine Alley – Tim "Nailer" Foley, an American veteran, heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon, whose goal is to stop Mexico’s drug wars from seeping across our border.

Local Businesses Protest

At a briefing hosted by the National Business League (NBL) in DC's Ward 5 on the eastern side of the city, a standing room only crowd of concerned and angry locally based CBE's (Certified Business Enterprises) met at Denny’s restaurant for breakfast. They were anxious to hear from the newly elected Attorney General, Karl Racine who came to speak about a hot button issue, the newly released Inspector General’s audit report on the District’s compliance with small business expenditure goals; a measure of how much local government invests back into the community. The results of the report showed; “a significant decline' in agencies expendable budgets that reduced spending goals during the 3rd and 4th quarters of FY 2014 from $779 million to $229 million”.{OIG No. 15-2-03EN}

Blackbird Bringing

Blackbird Bringing

Upon my arrival in Spain to the home of a dear friend with the express purpose of commemorating the 6th anniversary of my mother's passing, I realized that outside my room each morning a blackbird, with the lovely cadences of its song, serenaded me, as if welcoming me to Madrid. The bird would position itself directly outside my window and bring in the dawn as if a cherub were awakening me with sweet whispers in my ear. It was a lovely way to start the day and seemed a harbinger of good fortune.
