I've come to accept the fact that culturally we are stuck with the Kardashians, Duck Dynasty and, yes, America's Newest Weatherman. However, it doesn't mean we should forget or ignore our rich history and the...

No matter how much success and fame someone achieves, most of us want to remain relevant, and Phil Jackson is no exception. I rooted for Jackson when he played for the Knicks and I admired what he did as a coach with the Bulls and the Lakers. Those accomplishments will...

(23) Comments | Posted April 6, 2015 | 1:49 PM


The Republican Party has been wasting time trolling for non-existent dirt on presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton rather than championing its own candidates. I have heard little about Republican candidates and their ideas and policies, just never-ending rants against Mrs. Clinton, which ultimately is...
