Hey McDonald's, stop helping Qatar kill people

Hey McDonald's, stop helping Qatar kill people
I’m a total soccer geek. I have traveled to three countries to watch the U.S. Mens National Team play.  I’ve gone to every U.S.-Mexico game in Columbus (dos a cero!!). I traveled the country watching the World Cup in 1994.  I coach youth soccer. I still played until my body broke down. I watch every... Read more »

Thumbnail image for 'Text and drive? Lose your license'
My wife and I have a game we like to play when we see a slow driver.  We try to guess if it’s an old person or young person texting while driving. Lately it’s been people of all ages texting while driving.  There is not much scarier to me than someone who is staring down... Read more »

The only good thing about the sexual assault at St. Franicis de Sales
