Is social media doing more harm to America than good?

Is social media doing more harm to America than good?
Today, the Wall Street Journal reports that Mark Zuckerberg, the founder, and CEO of Facebook will face lawmakers next month on the way his Silicon Valley firm protects user data. I used to represent CEOs on the Hill. A Congressional inquiry is not like cocktails at the golf club with one’s peers. An investigator I... Read more »

Racism and bigotry were part of the mainstream of GOP politics long before Donald Trump and Steve Bannon

Normalizing pure evil

Normalizing pure evil
I’m shaking my head in disbelief at what is happening in America. What happened to our moral bearings? What happened to our sense of right and wrong? My generation, the baby boomers, were born in the wake of the Holocaust. Born as the world was rebuilt from the greatest evil history had ever seen.  We... Read more »
