I've been called many things in my time, but there's one in particular I find I'm most proud of: public servant.

I visited Liberty Plaza this past Saturday to meet the 99 percent of Americans who are bearing the brunt of the recession. I am very proud to see that they have started to mobilize and speak up.
The current restrictions on gun sales have proved ineffective. How many more avoidable tragedies must we witness before we, as a nation, take substantive action to solve this problem?
Although Juneteenth has gained widespread acceptance as a commemoration marking the end of slavery, there is still progress to be made.
The act of sending our troops into harm's way without addressing it before Congress, the voice of those very people our presidents send to combat, must end. This is part of an unconstitutional trend that has become a norm.
