So some Illinois kid visiting Seattle is upset that his MAGA hat was knocked off his head, taken, thrown to the ground, and spit on while the guy committing the crime hurled insults at him? He thought he should be afforded the right to wear the hat, reaction free?
Congratulations to France on their World Cup win. I admit I didn’t watch any of the World Cup until today. Katie was really getting into it so I watched some with her although I was rooting for Croatia.
It’s true. They were warned... They are doomed... And on Friday the 13th, nothing will save them.
NPR reported on a study published by researchers at Temple University and the Wisconsin HOPE Lab that concludes that 36 percent of college students are “food insecure,” another 36 percent are “housing insecure,” and another 9 percent are outright homeless.
To the planners and participants in today’s March For Our Lives, my unyielding awe and unwavering support.
As I said last week when I profiled Cameron Kasky, if I find out the name of the girl who butted heads with the NRA’s Dana Loesch, I would similarly profile her.
This is Cameron Kasky and he’s one of many of my new heroes.
First off, congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on winning their first ever Super Bowl! It was an amazing game. That’s all you need say about it.
This shouldn’t be funny. It truly should not be. But it is.
Dear U.S. Government,
Whether you are a Republican or a Democrat or an Independent or whatever... DO YOUR DAMN JOB!
Last weekend, Katie and I stopped at both Sam’s Club and Costco to pick up some needs. On the way home, I asked her which club we should continue with when our memberships come due.
Did you go Black Friday shopping today? Did you line up last night or very early this morning or did you wait until a more reasonable hour?
If tech companies like Amazon, Apple, PayPal, or Google we’re to offer full-service banking options, would you switch from your standard bank to use one of them?
This was tweeted by our POTUS yesterday at 3:12 p.m.
I like to think that, at birth, we are all the same mentally and emotionally. We come from our mothers as blank slates full of a desire to learn, to glean, to improve on our station in life insofar as a child is apt.
So, say a big multinational retailer that sells, well, just about anything you can imagine that runs the gamut from A to Z offered you the opportunity to have anything you order from them delivered not just to your home but inside your house if you have a special lock on your door that would provide access to this company’s delivery drivers, would you do it?
I’ve been reading a bunch of articles about how we need to stop assuming our personal information is safe because, no matter what, hacks will happen. You can have the best software protection, firewalls, passwords, whatever... they will happen.
A little bit ago, I blogged about my disdain for misleading headlines. I said I hate how they give you an incorrect impression about what is contained in the article and leave you more disappointed than informed. Well, maybe not in so many words, but still and all the same.
I’m horrified and sickened about Las Vegas.
Every single day, I am dumbstruck by our federal government and the depths to which certain members are willing to plunge.
I wish there was some kind of physical punishment available for writers of hyper-sensationalized headlines for news stories both online and in print.
Back in November 2011, I had the honor of meeting Dick Locher, the longtime writer and artist behind Dick Tracy comics.
How telling is it of my place in the annals of geekdom that when I see this headline...
I really don't think there's any better way to commemorate the life of Adam West than the way the City of Los Angeles chose to do.
This has been the official default license plate for Illinois residents for about a decade or more.
Nothing quite like hearing a ton of sirens in your backyard.
Tomorrow begins Distracted Driving Awareness Week in the State of Illinois. Nationwide, April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. But only Illinois has a week... apparently.
Have you seen the rings that were presented today to the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs yet? (Yes, I still like saying that. Even five months later, it's still surreal.)
Our favorite store from which to buy new shoes for Nathan was a place in town called Geishe Shoes. It was a mom-n-pop, sure, which made it expensive. But they had fantastic model-year-end sales.
Every day, I am amazed at how quickly time flies. It's already April. Whaaa??
This last presidential campaign cycle as well as the election and post-inauguration apocalypse have turned friends, coworkers, neighbors, and family against each other in ways I've never seen before. It has resulted in everything from just unfollowing someone on social media to families not speaking to verbal and physical battles. It's really kinda scary that we cannot work through such differences in a more civil way.
His National Security Advisor resigned in disgrace.
His first Muslim ban failed miserably.
Meet Brittany and Tiffany. They are twin sisters and students at a high school about five miles from where Katie, Nathan, and I live. We didn't know them personally, but yesterday was their birthday. They would have turned 17 years old.
