Half a century ago, Pennsylvania native Rachel Carson authored “Silent Spring” and, for all Americans, stirred the consciousness and brought into sharp focus the environmental destructiveness and widespread poisoning of wildlife resulting from governmentally sanctioned pesticides. Unfortunately, we are discovering all too late the degree to which our national leadership has lost its focus. And governmental neglect of its environmental responsibilities has, with occasional exceptions, continued.
Editorial Published on Montgomery News - "Love in the Age of Trump"
August 10, 2018
Love is love is love. And any American’s pursuit of love should be as inalienable a right as any that our founding fathers declared in our Constitution. And as President Trump announced his nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy to the United States Supreme Court — Brett Kavanaugh, an extreme conservative known to minimize women’s rights and to prioritize corporations over individual liberties — it is important to understand the broader threat this poses to these rights.
Editorial Published on Montgomery News - "Protecting Access to Health Insurance: PA State Legislature Needs to do the Right Thing
June 24, 2018
Before now, health care insurance access regardless of pre-existing conditions had seemingly bipartisan support and surprising support from the Trump Administration. However, in the latest of a long line of disturbing actions, the Trump Administration has unilaterally switched its previously held position and has urged the Texas federal court to strike down two specific provisions from the ACA: one that requires coverage of people with pre-existing conditions and another that prevents insurers from charging a higher premium because of pre-existing conditions.

Editorial Published on WHYY - "Political Leaders Must Address Prolific Access to Assault Weapons"
April 14, 2018
The bottom line is this: The rights of individuals to live free from fear that friends, husbands, wives, sons, or daughters might be the next victim of senseless gun violence should be paramount. No court has ever held that assault weapons belong in civilian hands, and legislators shouldn’t discount this by talking circles around the issue.
The Intelligencer Agrees with Daryl's View on Gun Control
April 05, 2018
“This won’t solve all problems, nor is it a guarantee that events like this won’t happen again,” Boling wrote. “But we would stack the deck in our favor and reduce the unconscionable risk that burdens us daily.”
We believe he’s right about that. And so do many Pennsylvanians.
Editorial Published on The Intellligencer - "And the Children will lead them all..."
In the wake of the Parkland shooting—and the subsequent (re)shaping of our nation’s ethical compass for gun safety — it is poignant that from the mouths of our children we have heard the greatest wisdom.
