On Sunday, Aug. 5, a recent graduate of Rowland Hall High School, Isaiah Poritz, penned a great commentary on what is wrong with our political landscape.

Poritz talks about the major problems of name-calling, refusing to listen to viewpoints of others and “you are with us or against us” mentality. He also makes some positive suggestions of getting beyond this behavior. I highly recommend you check this out at www.sltrib.com.

Isaiah, Emory University is fortunate to have you this fall. Best of luck to you!
