  • It’s Just A Little Wait

    I’m still celebrating my 50th year around the sun, and over the weekend, my college roommate officially joined the club as well.

  • When God Is Unbothered

    The internet went a buzz a couple of months ago when Gayle King attempted to conduct an interview while the respondent went berserk.
