Unless your name happens to be Arthur Fonzarelli (in which case, that's crazy!), it's hard to define the word "cool."

If I have gay children, I'll love them. I don't mean some token, distant, tolerant love that stays at a safe arm's length. It will be an extravagant, open-hearted, unapologetic, lavish, embarrassing-them-in-the-school cafeteria, kind of love.
Enjoy that chocolate this Halloween because in the next five years, we could be facing a major shortage. Cocoa farmers, who grow all of the cocoa beans for the world's chocolate, aren't paid fairly and are ditching the crop. Global cocoa production has actually declined since 2011.
The Honolulu Biennial arrives a time when global art sales climb a record peak of over $66 billion dollars. A biennial is an international art exhibition that appears every two years. The work is contemporary, an expression of the here and now.
