WHAT DID WE TALK ABOUT BEFORE POLITICS TOOK OVER? And I'm asking this question in all seriousness, because part of me has forgotten. I need your help!
SO NOW COLLEGE MASCOTS HAVE TO BE GENDER NEUTRAL? Helen Raleigh is a proud graduate of the University of Wyoming and happens to be a lady. A new marketing slogan for the school, "The World Needs More Cowboys" makes a whole lot of sense because the school mascot is the Cowboys.

OH. MA. GERD. Skip the the 2 minute mark and OH MA GERD.
FACT CHECKING THE FACT CHECKERS I think the team at RealClearPolitics.com does a good job of presenting columns and stories from every perspective. It's why I check them everyday.

DEAR MILLENIALS, I TOTALLY DID THIS TOO Millenials say they want to retire young, which is great, but they haven't saved anything to make that happen. Don't worry kids, there will be plenty of time for a Come to Jesus when you're 40.
