The same week that America’s federal government plunged deeper into a governance crisis from misconduct by President Trump and members of his professed Law-&-Order administration, many Philadelphians took a big step towards restoring the vitality of democracy with their participation in the primary election.

Navigating the cultural divide in a country once off limits for American visitors can be tricky, but with travel restrictions lowered thanks to President Obama's changes and a bit of preparation Americans can now enjoy the capital city's wide variety of cultural delights like a native.

[OP-ED]: The Comey firing reminds us of a bigger danger

I have tried to evaluate Donald Trump’s presidency fairly. I’ve praised him when he has appointed competent people to high office and expressed support for his policies when they seemed serious and sensible (even though this has drawn criticism from some quarters). But there has always been another aspect to this presidency lurking beneath the surface, sometimes erupting into full view as it did this week. Donald Trump, in much of his rhetoric and many of his actions, poses a danger to American democracy.

 He intentado evaluar la presidencia de Donald Trump con justicia. Lo he elogiado cuando eligió a personas competentes para cargos altos y expresé mi apoyo por sus políticas cuando parecían serias y sensatas (a pesar de que esto ha suscitado críticas de algunos sectores). Sin embargo, siempre ha existido otro aspecto en esta presidencia que ha estado asechando bajo la superficie y algunas veces ha salido a la vista, como sucedió esta semana. Donald Trump, en la mayor parte de su retórica y varias de sus medidas supone un peligro para la democracia estadounidense.
