High school students at MSD in Parkland, Florida who survived the February 14 mass shooting there took unprecedented control of the response afterward, launching the influential #NEVERAGAIN gun reform movement and holding the massive March For Our Lives rally just one month later on March 24.
It’s my 15th consecutive year of reviewing my favorite music—an unbelievable milestone. This time around, I’ll continue the concise format I launched last year with another curated, eclectic playlist. Look back with me at 2017 in music.
I spent the entire week watching all the seasons of AMC’s ‘Halt And Catch Fire’, leading up to its series finale. Inspired by the fact its killer soundtrack “almost entirely comes from The 120 Minutes Archive”, as a friend put it, I’ve compiled the official Spotify playlists from the show here—it’s time for a trip.

The day we’ve been waiting for is here. No, not Election Day, but close: it’s the first Presidential Debate. So, why won’t the third party candidates be on stage? In this quick take, I make the case that they haven’t earned it.
An ill-informed Facebook post went viral this week that claims Donald Trump’s tax proposal would affect middle class earners bigly, making them millions of dollars over the next few decades when compared to Hillary Clinton’s proposal. But at best, that’s a pipe dream. At worst, it’s a lie. Sad!
