"This is a book about slavery and family and loss and longing... It is about the forced separations of African-American families, about their grief and their determined hope to someday see each other again... It takes courage to look at the humiliation they suffered...
It is worth saying that this is a book about separation, resilience and survival, and about the texture and contours of despair... In the end, it is a journey into their feelings... The stories I recount are raw, emotional and dramatic... That's what these people's lives were."

Erectile dysfunction is difficult to talk about, especially if you're the one with the problem. But let's talk about it for a moment.
Terry (not his real name) is your typical 39-year-old male in good shape and, in his opinion, eating a balanced diet. He's getting his proper rest as well, but for some reason his sexual performance hasn't been stellar. In fact, he has become somewhat depressed because he feels less than a man.

Before the U.S. Supreme Court's historic decision to uphold President Obama's Affordable Care Act on June 28, the President's detractors – particularly the combative and unyielding Republicans – made it clear that they deem their verbal jabs and incendiary remarks warranted because the president, in their opinion, is taking the country too far to the left into a dangerous, fiscal abyss.
The landmark decision came as a surprise to some and a disappointment to others. There was praise for the president, laughter from his supporters, and no doubt a few tears from his combatants and the right-wingers who vowed at one time to make Obama a one-term president.
