In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly (more...)

I debated where to put this piece. I put it under Life Arts because of this particular sentence: "Being willing to acknowledge the arrival of the point of no return is an act of bravery."
