Boston Marathon

Today I came across a story about a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing that took place a few years ago. The person being talked about now has a prosthesis (leg) and decided to run the race this year, and…

NEWSPAPERS

Newspapers are the best place to work, it’s been decided. I’ve basically spent the last 8 years of my life at least somewhat involved with the day to day operations of a newspaper and there’s nothing else quite like it.…

3 Predictions

It’s Super Bowl week, it’s the beginning of primary elections, and the world is still sphere shaped. It’s disappointing that the Patriots didn’t make it back to the Super Bowl, but Tom Brady already has four rings so I guess…
