Hello Amanda! I thought this is very interesting post! So often it seems we fail to appreciate that many of our American issues are global issues, which you did a great job of addressing! I wonder what strategies we may employ to build international cooperation to solve this issue? Thank you...

Hello Julian! I thought that this was a very interesting post! I especially agreed with your statement on our collective responsibility to make change and do better. America has often failed to live up to the values it proclaims. However, America has undergone radical change and development through democracy in the...

Hey Milo! As a Utahn and as someone interested in conservation, I find the debate around Bears Ears to be fascinating. I'd be curious to learn more about the impact of the changes in land designation to national recreation areas or other designations because the more I look into the...

Diana, This was an interesting post! Do you know whether pennies will still be legal tender if they are no longer being produced? Personally, I've heard that pennies cost more to produce than they are worth, so I think the production of pennies should be stopped. I'd be interested to know more about...

Hey Milo! As a Salt Laker, I'm especially interested in this article. I am especially interested in the critiques of this solution. 2-5% does not seem like very much of an increase in housing prices, but our prices are already inflated as it is. Do you know how much of...

Cristina, This article was pretty interesting. I would not ride the Titanic II if it were a cruise because cruises do not interest me. However, if it were for transit I would have no issue getting on the ship. Building a second Titanic is peculiar but comprehensible. I wonder how...

I too have never been especially drawn to the true crime genre, though I am a horror fan. Do you believe there is an important distinction between true crime and fictional but realistic horror stories in how they affect audiences? I totally agreed with your conclusion that true crime,...

Dear Selena, I already live by all of the suggestions in the article. That's some good advice you give! However. I often worry that reducing current plastic usage is not enough. There is so much plastic already in the oceans and other waterways, I often wonder whether we need to...

I agree with you. Confederate monuments were not made to remember the dishonorable and racist actions of the CSA and it's leaders but rather to celebrate and honor them. Confederate Monuments do not teach about the past -- they glorify a racist cause. Monuments to traitors certainly do not...
