    “‘This election is not going to be about issues; it’s going to be a race about character and temperament between two of the most unpopular political candidates in history,’ said Steve Schmidt, who managed John McCain’s 2008 presidential race,” wrote the New York Times. Well, that’s a good start. The two most unpopular candidates in […]

  • Don’t Get Me Started on Trump

    On April 27, 2016, I attended a Donald J. Trump rally at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum at the State Fairgrounds with fellow seniors Caroline Lampen and Daniel Tinkey.

  • Money on my mind

      The faces on U.S. currency are undergoing plastic surgery. But to everyone’s surprise, the $10 bill (which is what many expected to be changed) is the bill that won’t get the major surgery.

  • Luckless in London

    In light of the recent lackluster season by the Indianapolis Colts and my slight obsession with the video game FIFA, I have found a new favorite sport to watch on Sundays: the English Premier League (EPL).

      Peyton Manning won again. Now what? Super Bowl ‘16 Peyton is not Super Bowl ‘07 Peyton, and it showed. Almost everyone expects him to retire but he hasn’t made any decisions yet. When asked, he told ESPN, “‘I don’t know the answer to that,’ Manning said. ‘I talked to [former NFL coach Tony Dungy] […]

  • Don’t Read this if you’re a Wuss

    Recently I was listening to The Grady and Big Joe Show, a local sports talk radio program, and I heard that there were some rule changes made to the fan conduct policy of the WIAA (Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association). The new rules prohibit fans from yelling extremely offensive, disrespectful, and borderline sacrilegious things such as […]

  • “Berning” your wallet

      Certain things cost money. Oh, wait… Everything costs money. From a strict non-partisan perspective, there are many errors from Senator Bernie Sanders’ plans to save the great U.S.of A. The average state college tuition for in-state is $9,410. There are 629 public four-year institutions in the United States. There are 6,837,605 students enrolled in […]
