Guest Artist Person of the Day

Robin Hoffman has done this very moving piece for Dance Insider magazine. The article that accompanies it illuminates our health care crisis in stark terms. The tale of the one-legged dancer. Thanks to Robin for permission to share this.

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.
