Scenting the opportunity to grandstand with another pugnacious "conservative" governor, LePage trapped Kaci in her home, hounded her with unreasonable demands and baited her with legal proceedings.
An ominous cloud hung over Chicago's fall chill all week. There was an uneasiness in the pit of Bears fans' stomachs they couldn't shake. Was the offensive explosion last week against the Atlanta Falcons an outlier? After Sunday's horrible 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins, the answer is a resounding yes.
It feels like we're flying all over the state of Maine -- and, at one point, we set down on a whim to taxi over to a village where a man sells us homemade root beer out of a refrigerator on his front porch.
