Watergate, 50 Years On
by Anthony Aycock
We are in the midst of a series of Watergate anniversaries: Last May was 50 years since the break-in at the Watergate Hotel, this May is 50 years since the Watergate investigation hearings began, and next May will be 50 years since the impeachment proceedings against President Richard Nixon began. The Watergate scandal has loomed large in the popular imagination since. Just last week, HBO premiered White House Plumbers, a limited series about two of the scandal's major players.

Anthony Aycock compiles a list of sources for studying Watergate and its impact and legacy.

We Are Not Safe From Mass Shootings … But We Could Be
by Alison A. Trotta
I was in high school when Columbine happened. At the time, everything about it felt surreal, unsettling. Growing up in an area that was considered safe, it seemed unfathomable that something like that could happen. Surely, it would never happen at my high school. Surely, it was an impossible thing. Still, I remember the unease, walking those halls, the whisper of worry in the eyes of my classmates. My mother's more emphatic "be careful." Then, it was an anomaly. Now, it is commonplace.
