I graduated from college 26 years ago this past week. I remember ever part of it -- the parties the night before, how we stayed up way too late (Ok, we didn't sleep at all). As I prepare for the graduations I will attend this week, I anticipate the memories that will flood my mind.
President Obama impeccably and eloquently made the connection between the role Morehouse has played in shaping today's world and the role it will play in shaping the future.
What I've realized, in retrospect, is that divorce (as with any challenging situation) actually contains within it many blessings. A decade later I am full of gratitude for my divorce, the opportunities that have crossed my path, and who I've become.
Ed Carpenter is a rare breed in Indycar today being an owner/driver in a series dominated by multicar teams and rich team owners owners. This weekend, however, he shut out the field and won the pole for the Indianapolis 500.

When some of the most commendable feminists I know are men, this is a pretty confusing statement to be making. If we isolate roughly half of the population from the movement, what can we hope to achieve?
We don't have to be victims of hurry sickness. We do have all the time we need -- and from this patient mind zone, we can reclaim our time, our priorities and our ability to respond well to life and all its demands. With patience, we're in the driver's seat of our own lives.
The day may come when the worst nightmare a crooked banker or compromised regulator can have begins with the words, "You have a letter from...
What a week for Republicans! It started with Obama fighting off simultaneous scandals and 24 coming back this Fall. But as Spitzer and Reagan discuss, by Friday the Scandals Scorecard revealed more smoke than fire. Who'll tell FOX?
Matt Carson's murder highlights the shortcomings of a rights-based, marriage-based approach to LGBT equality, and cries out for deeper, and more difficult, forms of engagement.
Almost 16 million Americans have registered or re-registered every year under National Voter Registration Act provisions. Many people today don't remember a time when they couldn't register at their local DMV. Yet, there is work to be done.
