MULLINGS/Where is American Leadership?
Jun 15,2012

As Colorado is in the Mountain Time Zone, I am now eight hours away from where I sat at this exact moment one week ago when I was in Paris with The Lad. Woe to me. Let's take a quick look at how we're doing in our place among

MULLINGS/Travels thru Sub-Saharan Africa
Apr 30,2012

The reason I came to Ghana with Bono's ONE Campaign was to help publicize the introduction of two vaccines to the Ghanaian heath care system a rotaviral vaccine and a pneumococcal vaccine for newborns. These vaccines will help stave off infant diarrhea and pneumonia which kill more children under

Apr 26,2012

Anyone who has every traveled overseas will tell you the hardest thing to do is to keep up with events back in the U.S. of A.
