Sunday, March 17, 2019

Nancy Pelosi has become one of the highest-ranking lawmakers to voice their support for lowering the voting age to 16. As youth activism in the country has increased in the wake of a series of deadly school shootings, many have argued these children deserve the right to vote for the lawmakers representing them. Several states, including Oregon and California, are currently considering bills which would lower the voting age from 18. Others say 16 is too young to make such important decisions. What do you think?

Friday, March 1, 2019

To survive February is to appreciate climate change. The mercury can soar into the 70s and 80s, just as easily as Mother Nature can inflict rain and snow.

There was no heated talk about the anti-Trump “resistance,” even while in Trump’s proximity at a White House black-tie event.
