The warriors fighting AIDS

December 14, 2018

By Mark Segal Last week for World AIDS Day, Penn Medicine honored me with its Red Ribbon Pioneer Award. Truth is, it really hadn’t dawned on me, ‘why me?’ When notified about it a month prior and asked if I’d accept, it wasn’t an issue why. After all, it’s Penn Medicine Center for AIDS Research…

December 7, 2018

Hate and horror – when does it stop?

November 16, 2018

By Julianne Malveaux TRICEEDNEYWIRE.COM As strange as it seems, I now view the Bush years with nostalgia.  Both Big Bush (POTUS 41) and his son Shrub (POTUS 43) incurred the ire of Democrats, with Shrub’s Supreme Court-complicit theft of the 2000 election prompting anger and protests.
