I’ve had the privilege of working in Special Education for a couple of years now. Throughout that time I learned a lot about Autism Spectrum Disorder, ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) therapy, and about the education system in general. All have left me with both a feeling of helplessness and simultaneously…

After months of calls for his resignation, Andrew Cuomo finally announced his resignation on August 10th, 2021 (though it will not take effect for two weeks). Cuomo’s resignation is a victory for New Yorkers, Americans, and women everywhere but the fact that Cuomo was able to survive as long as…

Liz Cheney has not died. She is 54 years old and is still serving as the sole congressional representative for the state of Wyoming. But when she does die what will her obituary say? What will be her lasting legacy? Will it be the mildly courageous act of going against…

Last night America’s oldest living Vice-President Walter Mondale died. Mondale is/was not a big figure like Richard Nixon, George HW Bush, or Dick Cheney, mostly because unlike those three he never actually became president.

At the beginning of this year, I had attempted to make a voting guide, but failed for two reasons: 1) This year began with so many candidates (especially in the Democratic primary) that researching and writing about them took up so much time and 2) Once they began to drop…

Like many others COVID-19 has found me working from home, and having a lot of free time inside, on my hands. As a result I’ve played a lot more video games. I played through Panzer Dragoon Saga, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and most recently, Coffee Talk, a short visual…
