Emotions continue to boil over as a turbulent social climate in the United States continues to be roiled by social media, partisan politics, race, law enforcement and an ongoing pandemic that encroaches on personal freedoms.

I have a quick comment about the article: A House Divided. I read the article with interest, anxious to hear the opinion(s) from the other side of the so-called divided house: the Progressive side. Alas, I read none. I was not surprised.


It was confusing because they all sounded like Americans.
