While no one knows how this case will unfold in the most likely months ahead, one thing is for sure. It's not over for Mayor Vincent Gray.

What better way to justify the hours spent neglecting my children for this TV show than to convince myself it encapsulates the most profound of life lessons for them?
what if we gave everyone's favorite tales a TV twist? How would the stories change if today's TV characters were in them? Don't get us wrong, the classics are great. But we find our versions a little more "Must See."
