EWING, NJ – On Monday, October 30, at 12:30pm, Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman alongside senior leadership of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey will rally residents of New Jersey’s 12th Congressional District to condemn the full-on assault on women’s health and their rights.  The event will take place on the Green Hall Lawn at The College of New Jersey in Ewing.  She will be joined by Councilwoman Jennifer Keyes-Maloney: Rosie Driscoll, TCNJ Student: and Casey Olesko, Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey.

“As Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress try to restrict access to healthcare, New Jersey women need a governor who will stand strong with them,” said Watson Coleman. “Whomever we elect in the coming weeks must be a person who will work to make sure that access to care doesn’t depend on your income or your zip code.”

According to the National Women’s Law Center, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and proposed changes to the Medicaid program threaten the health and economic security of 7.8 million women, including 5.1 million women of color, who recently gained insurance coverage. This month, Donald Trump issued an Executive Order directing his Administration to scale back health coverage protections, allowing the sale of bare-bones policies and broadening association health plans that threaten the access to affordable and comprehensive coverage for all Americans.

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
