A grand jury indicted officers Eddie Martins and Richard Hall on Thursday, despite their claims the sex was consensual, according to the New York Post.

Donald Trump’s hands-on management style to be tested by presidency

Sunday, November 27th, 2016
President-elect Donald Trump looked at hundreds of marble samples before selecting one for the lobby of Trump Tower. He can recall, in painstaking detail even decades later, how he stood in the cold and oversaw the ice-making process at Central Park’s rink. And, during the campaign, he personally reviewed every single campaign ad, rejecting some over the smallest of perceived flaws.
The hands-on, minutiae-obsessed management style that Trump has relied on for decades in the business world will now be tested by the presidency, an overwhelming job in which his predecessor says only the most challenging decisions even make it

Donald Trump rides chutzpah to victory in presidential race

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016
He felt it in the breeze.
Nearing the end of his long, improbable journey to victory in the presidential race, Donald Trump, the candidate of so much tumult and bluster, waxed nostalgic about how he got there.
“I had great parents, great parents,” Trump told the crowd at a rally in steamy Orlando, Florida. “I just felt that nice breeze, so they’re helping us out.”
The candidate who for more than a year had unapologetically demonstrated he would say anything sensed it was time to rein it in.
“Stay on point, Donald, stay on point,” he publicly admonished himself just days before the

Sunday, October 18th, 2015
The rising expense of pharmaceuticals is expected to put extra pressure on Florida’s budget next year, with the Department of Corrections, worker health insurance plans, and Medicaid shouldering most of the burden. New specialty drugs in particular are fanning the budgetary flames, such as Sovaldi and Harvoni: 1,000 pills that cure Hepatitis C. Many observers see the waves of innovation that U.S. labs are churning out as representing a double-edged sword: New medicines will save lives, but kill budgets.
Cue the populist agitators, because these are the conditions that give rise to price regulation schemes. Lawmakers, however, should steer clear

Ed H. Moore: It’s time to recover our promise as a great nation

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015
“It is your business to rise up and preserve the Union and liberty for yourselves and not for me. I appeal to you again to constantly bear in mind that not with politicians, not with Presidents, not with office seekers, but with you, is the question: Shall the Union and shall the liberties of this country be preserved to the latest generations?”

In reading some literature on Abraham Lincoln I came across this quote that oddly fit within the parameters of our current national election conversation. The words above moved me to reflect upon what our ancestors must have contemplated
