America’s Paralyzing Political Divide
The political divide in this country has completely paralyzed us. Generally speaking, half of us think one way, the other half believes just the opposite. The never-ending conflicts — on a whole array of legal issues – continues with no end in sight.

Welcome to my home base where you’ll find my weekly Creators Syndicate crime and justice newspaper columns re-posted. The paper of my childhood — The Albuquerque Journal — continues to be my column’s showcase spot for as long as they’ll have me.
My writings here are always different. Sometimes I’ll simply tell you a story. Sometimes I’ll share my opinions, praise or criticism. Other times I’ll hold a mirror up to our society and invite you to form your own opinion. I hope the columns will give you something new to think about each time you visit.
It’s a complicated world out there, full of situations of good versus evil, right versus wrong. My job is point them out.
I’m also a contributing writer for Newsweek/The Daily Beast and you can find my articles at my homepage here.

Frankly, I stopped writing about it because I figured anyone who was interested in the topic had already formed an opinion and nothing I would write would change any minds. Also, because there was the hate mail I got after I refused to call people who enter this country illegally “undocumented workers.” [click to continue…]
