Too Much Drama

Make love, not war. But if you want both, get married.

The divorce rate in America has fallen by 25% from 1980, mainly due to ageing population (the later you marry, the less possibilities to divorce; and less stigma on remaining single).

However, divorce is still common—more than 800,000 marriages were annulled in 2014—and it is often costly and protracted.

[OP-ED]: Is this “The Wall” Mr. Trump is talking about?

 10/25/2016 - 16:16

Call it “The Impossible Wall.” 

We saw it with our own eyes this past weekend, and it was hard to believe.

“The Wall,” in our mind, is the one we see occasionally on TV, or, more frequently, the one built in the popular imagination by politicians who keep talking about it. But this imaginary wall has nothing to do with the real one you see once you get there and touch it with your own hands.
