Observations & Insight How we talk Jim Kharouf – JLN My column yesterday, What Just Happened about the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States struck a chord with readers. We received more reader feedback on this column than we have in some time, some negative, some supportive. Here are a few. “Thanks for this insightful OpEd. You articulated so many feelings I’m still trying to process.” And this: Wow, what an ignorant, cheap shot to smear nearly 60 million Americans that way. Deplorables, right?

Observations & Insight What Just Happened? By Jim Kharouf, JLN It was after midnight and the realization that Donald Trump is going to be president of the United States stunned, saddened and angered me.

Time to Rise Up, Vote and Unite Commentary,Feature

Tomorrow is election day in the United States. It’s almost hard to write the first word of our country’s name because we are hardly united these days – divided over everything from political idealism, immigration, terrorism, globalization, capitalism to the many other isms and phobias that threaten what we stand for as a country, and arguably THE standard bearer for democracy.
