For 700 million or more kids around the world, childhood ends too soon. This is the premise that prompted a new report called the End of Childhood Index, which ranks 172 countries based on whether or not childhood has ended early for the children living there. Inadvertently, the report maps out the best and worst places to be a kid in today’s world.
Earlier this summer, I was walking through the Miami airport with my 8-year-old grandson when I looked around and noticed I suddenly wasn’t. I saw him a few feet away, walked over, and looked up to see a familiar CNN clip of Donald Trump’s interview with Jake Tapper.
A new children’s book does a lovely and hilarious job of distilling Trump to his bare essence: narcissism. Michael Ian Black writes: “It’s true! A Trump needs all of our noise to exist. Without chaos it shrinks to a sad, orange disc.”
