My Week Sunbathing in Terror-Torn Tunisia and How We Demonise Terror Victims

In November of 2014, I spent a week at the Imperial Marhaba Hotel in Port el Kantaoui, Tunisia.

Earlier this summer, I wrote an essay about that tragic pool party in McKinney, Texas, where police overreacted, with guns drawn, to complaints from white neighbors about noisy Black teenagers at the community pool.

Does the Ashley Madison Hack Spell the End for Monogamous Marriage?

I was born here. I have spent the majority of my life here. I live in a county with roughly 164,000 people. It's not Leiper's Fork Tennessee with and estimated 650 people, but it is a good sampling of small town USA. Florida is funky because we are a very large state. Show More Summary
