All of a sudden I noticed that my "People You May Know" box was overrun with a decade's worth of guys that I've dated or hooked up with and then promptly forgot about (or actively took great pains to avoid).
Pretending to know what it's like to be black in America isn't even remotely close to actually being black in America.
On the surface, this charitable giving may seem like the right thing to do for the holiday season. In reality, it's part of a nefarious plot being perpetrated by the lamestream media and Comrade Obama to turn true patriots into bleeding heart liberals and bring down this once-great nation.
Levin is a lovely man, a sweetheart, if you will. But not to those who stole from the American people and especially his beloved Michiganders. The senator who wouldn't take a picture frame was hell on wheels to those who thought nothing about taking millions or billions.
Currently, with two North American touring companies along with the Broadway production, Wicked is wrapping up another successful year and will be returning to Detroit for an end of the year run at the Detroit Opera House starting Dec. 10 going through until Jan. 4.

For more than a decade now, the Michigan Legislature has failed to properly fund the Department of Transportation, which has resulted in a steady decline in the quality of Michigan's roads.
The Oral History Club is a powerful example of the importance of intergenerational dialogue between our youth and the elders. It is the knowing of what has been that informs the limitless possibility of what can be.
Throughout America, disinvestment in infrastructure is far more typical. America's focus seems to be on individual spending, not investment in community resources. We refuse to tax ourselves and the signs of neglect are everywhere.
While Republican leadership wants to depict Democrats and the president as uncompromising ideologues, such assertions from a group that have shown to be uncompromising ideologues falls on deaf ears.
We now all have the chance to examine the evidence -- released last night -- in the grand jury's decision not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson, who fired multiple bullets into Michael Brown. But the verdict on America's criminal justice system is already in for many Americans: guilty, for treating young black men differently than young white men.
