Chicago- city, risen from the ashes

Chicago- city, risen from the ashes

"Chicago. The city, like a phoenix, risen from the ashes after the Great Fire in 1871. The city of the first skyscraper in the world. The city of opportunities. The city money and blood. The city where I was born and died. "Midnight Sun" Stephenie Morgan Meyer.

”So, what do you think of us?”

One question has been repeated over and over again as we´ve been travelling around the country. People kept asking it in northern Minnesota, in the newsrooms of the eastern coast legacy media, in the deep south and in the relaxed California.

Post-debate crisis

Post-debate crisis

I'm still in shock. 

After attending the second presidential debate in St.Louis, Missouri, I just don't understand how this huge political event became a Sunday night show. 

And I'm not talking about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. We all know that the presidential campaign is just entertainment, and that the Republican nominee is a joke.

The Hispanic Vote in Florida

The Hispanic Vote in Florida

Donald Trump’s controversial proposals for the immigration policy and the bad things he says about immigrants should result in an overwhelming defeat in Florida for the G.O.P.’s Presidential candidate, due to weight of the Hispanic electorate in the Sunshine State. The complexity of the American political system, however, defies the basic logic.

Imagine Donald Trump sitting in the Situation Room making life or death decisions on behalf of the United States.

Our veterans and their families deserve a president who doesn't disrespect and disparage their sacrifices.

Not one living president has said they believe Donald Trump has what it takes to be Commander-in-Chief.
