Journalism: R I P

Not just the death of an ideal. The death of a fundamental aspect of the ‘ Great American Experiment ‘. It will be impossible to continue the experiment without it. There can be no America without the so called ‘ Fourth Estate ‘. For those of you who are not current with exactly what is meant by the ‘ Fourth …

Truth

Truth is an absolute. Or is it? The discovery of truth has been a perpetual struggle. Not just for the individual, but for mankind, as a whole, as well.

I Swear

There are few things more sacred to me than my word, and my philosophy. I declare here, before anyone who may ever see this, that I will never live my life for another man, nor ask him to live for mine. This does not mean that I could not, or that I would not. It does not mean that I …
