I would argue that Pima Community College could and should play a key role. History is riddled with periods of war, famine, natural disasters, plague, and pestilence that swept nations, only to simmer and die with varying degrees of death and destruction. Today, in addition to being at the precipice of the most emotionally laden Presidential election of our lives, we are in the midst of a historic period of a global pandemic and social upheaval, indeed by any measure, of biblical proportions. There will be more death. There will be more destruction—social, cultural, economic, and political. It will end. [...]

The Lincoln Project digital ad condemns Donald Trump for not taking the Coronavirus seriously after experts spent a day attempting to convince him of the potential severity of the Pandemic.

“[Trump’s] like a child who can’t believe this has happened to him — all his whining and self-pity,” Joe Biden said during a speech in Lancaster, Pa. “Well, this pandemic didn’t happen to him. It happened to all of us. And his job isn’t to whine about it. His job is to do something about it, to lead.” During the speech in a recreation center gym, Biden called on the Trump administration to stop its ongoing lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act, warning that it could lead to millions of Americans losing coverage. “Testing unequivocally saves lives,” Biden said, [...]

Arizona Representative Pamela Powers Hannley Inhabitants of Earth are nearly six months into the most disruptive year of our lives, thanks to the novel Coronavirus. The United States was slow to react to the pandemic that had already spread across Asia and Europe and killed thousands. Early denial by leaders in multiple countries-- like the US, Brazil, Russia, India, and the UK-- has proven deadly for the general population. As of today, June 14, 2020, there have been 7,767,336 cases and 429,555 deaths worldwide. Although the US has 4.25% of the world's population, we have close to 30% of the [...]
