Maria Teresa Lara and Ruben Aceves introduced me to the object of my newest desire -- the small-batch Double Barrel Reposado Tequila.
The Peace Corps has always been about igniting a passion for service. When it was created by President John F. Kennedy, it presented a model for international service that was so unique, so unprecedented, that many said it will never work.
There's a big difference between how Mexican and Central American kids are treated once they cross the border. Mexican children and teens are deported almost immediately, in what's called expedited repatriation. The Central Americans aren't-- that is, yet.
Lebron's return to Ohio was far more important then literally the one thing the REST OF THE WORLD cares most about: soccer (futbol). Gotta love 'murica;)
My "love letter" to Sepp Blatter, to the tune of Jay Z's "Dear Summer".

Piramideo and the various U.S. programs hope to capitalize on Cuban complaints about the country's mobile phone and internet services. Until 2008 the Cuban government prohibited citizens from owning cell phones. When the law changed, hundreds of thousands signed up.
