  1. Longer

    "Longer" is a song written and recorded by the American singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg. The song can be found on Fogelberg's 1979 album Phoenix. It was also included on his 1982 greatest hits album as well as various other retrospective and compilation recordings. Fogelberg, who had released more rock-oriented songs throughout the 1970s, jokingly described "Longer" in the liner notes to one of his retrospective albums as "the song that put me on the elevators." He wrote the song while vacationing in Maui, "lounging in a hammock one night and looking up at the stars. It just seems this song was drifting around the universe, saw me, and decided I'd give it a good home." Accompanying Fogelberg's vocals is an acoustic guitar as well as a flugelhorn solo by Jerry Hey. Lyrically, the song compares various events with his emotional attachment to the one he loves.

  4. Ron Kim:

    There is no measure left to hide the truth: the governor broke the law so we must hold him accountable, when institutions fail to believe victims, allow predators to act with impunity, or fail to put policies of protection in place, it sends a strong signal that condones this type of unacceptable behavior. We cannot afford to ignore his transgressions any longer: doing so will erode the integrity of our legislative body and demonstrate complicity in sheltering a sexual predator.

  5. Mwanandeke Kindembo:

    You should not allow yourself to be compared to the mob, or the people who are ready to rebel against a regime which they believe does not serve their interests any longer.
