In the coming months, it has an opportunity to demonstrate that commitment and move beyond rhetoric, putting into practice policies that address human trafficking in all its forms and stop the use of child soldiers."

"The belief that the threat of military strikes and sanctions will force North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons is magical thinking. The North sees the United States as an existential threat to its survival and nuclear weapons as the ultimate deterrent to US (and South Korean) efforts to topple the Kim regime."

"If it "violates" "inherent dignity" to execute men who suffer from an intellectual disability or are juveniles, as Kennedy has said, the same must be true of the searing childhood trauma, intellectual impairments, and mental illnesses these men endured, which undermined their capacity for reasoning and judgment just as severely as an intellectual disability could."

"His is the first presidency occurring in the equivalent of dog years, with domestic and foreign policy changing so rapidly that 100 days with Trump feels like two years with any other commander in chief. He is governing in the fashion in which he has lived his life, like an over-eager puppy who is all wriggly, attention-seeking, impulsive, prone to mistakes and clumsy to clean up."

"As we reach the hundred-day mark for one of his successors, it is worth remembering what FDR accomplished, how he did it, and what lessons his leadership holds for today. His achievements were so extraordinary that every successor has been measured by how their records compare. Donald Trump says that is a ridiculous standard, but he and his team are working like crazy to improve their score.".

"Why in the world would a gubernatorial candidate in Virginia involve himself in a controversy over an obelisk several hundred miles away, one that New Orleans City Council in 1993 declared a public nuisance?
