Re: Abolish ICE? Please don’t.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency was established 15 years ago in response to the 9/11 attacks.

People want to abolish ICE because of Trump’s immigration policies.

Before the U.S. had a Department of Homeland Security (DHS), immigration was managed by the Department of Commerce first, and then the Department of Labor next.

Quick Thoughts: Media Literacy Should Be Taught To Children (and Parents)

Kids (and, surprisingly, babies) nowadays have their hands on smartphones, tablets, computers, and/or gaming systems with social media sharing. They’re exposed to much more information than I ever was when I was a kid! (I’m a post-millennial, by the way.)

…How in the world did she get on the Statue of Liberty?

(The first half of this blog post will be about my reaction to this article, while the second-half will focus on my reaction to another article about the same incident.)

Audition #3: I Got the Lead Role… and Turned It Down

After filming for “House of Cards” was done, I received an e-mail from my college’s theater department about an audition for a local summer playwrights festival.
