Americans' glass house is cracked; it's time to repair it

The first memory I have of Gov. Ralph Northam is from February 2014 when I was a nervous Virginia Senate Page and he was the freshly inaugurated Lieutenant Governor.

                    Looking good To whoever is decorating Lake Powell Road and Brookwood Drive with decorations: They look amazing. Can’t wait to see what you put up for Easter. This is harassment I worked at a big box hardware store. Every day, the male customers would make degrading sexual comments to any of the...
