Talking and sharing are key to suicide prevention

By Dese'Rae L. Stage
I talk about suicide every day. I've seen suicide from more angles than I'd wish on anyone: I've lost friends to suicide, seen the immediate aftermath of a suicide death, and survived two of my own suicide attempts. In the years after my most recent attempt in 2006, it felt like I was alone in what I'd been through.

TIJUANA, MEXICO - JUNE 21:  A migrant mother walks with her two daughters on their way to cross the port of entry into the U.S. for their asylum hearing on June 21, 2018 in Tijuana, Mexico. The mother, who did not wish to give their names, said they were fleeing their hometown near the Pacific coast of Mexico after suffering a violent carjacking of her taxicab.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has added that domestic and gang violence in immigrants' country of origin would no longer qualify them for political asylum status.

By Julian Zelizer, CNN Political Analyst
Julian Zelizer says don't be distracted by the Nixon-era level of support for impeachment; it's not going anywhere, barring a stunning finding from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and there are better ways for Democrats to deal with Trump

Would James Madison have used his cell phone in the shower?

By Jeffrey Toobin, CNN
James Madison never had a cell phone -- not even a flip phone! But the Supreme Court is frequently called on to conjure what Madison and the other framers of the Constitution might have made of our world, one very different from the one they knew.
