Ever notice how breaks are always simultaneously too long and too short? That's how this one felt. It seemed like classes ended, then Christmas, New Year's, and now here we are, back again for more. All in three short weeks. I need a break to recover from my break.
This was one of those weeks that gives commentators fits. So much important stuff happened, it just doesn't seem possible to pick just one thing to comment on.
From the international stage to local politics, it seemed someone was doing something noteworthy, cringeworthy or just amusing.
So in the spirit of somewhat lazy columnists everywhere, instead of picking one topic and banging on it, I'll just give my take on some of the highlights of the week.
Forty years ago this month, the Supreme Court handed down the Roe v. Wade ruling that both legalized abortion in America and made access to abortion a Constitutionally protected right. Since then the debate has raged over whether this decision was right, what the consequences were, and whether it should be reversed.
