With next week’s elections looming, voter registration arguments have met national attention. One side demands election integrity, and the other screams voter oppression. In the middle, those just beginning to understand the issues hover in disbelief. Proof of registration fraud has surfaced in the courts, and evidence suggests that fraud has swayed close elections. States participating in a volun

The Today Show Halloween episode (because, really, what else would you call it?) brought a little Saturday night to Friday morning. Every year, the morning show anchors pick a theme for Halloween and recreate characters and scenes, and this year the gang chose classic Saturday Night Live characters. The results were nothing, if not entertaining. The festivities began with Willie Geist and Tamron H

Josh Smith is still taking outside jumpers, Brandon Jennings is still Brandon Jennings and Andre Drummond can’t stay out of foul trouble.

But when they head off to school, are you sure they remain as healthy as you want them to be? It’s a paradox: Schools are supposed to teach children valuable lessons in life; however, that’s where they might pick up a

If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
