On the Issue of Integrity: Obeying the Law Isn’t Always Enough

The recent political scandal of Hillary Clinton’s emails while she was secretary of state raises the question: Is it enough to obey the law? I don’t think so.

Did George Zimmerman Get Away with Murder?

In an interview with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America,” Juror B29 said that George Zimmerman got away with murder. It was a great sound bite.
