Picky Eaters: The Terror of Being Invited To Dinner- May 25, 2015
What’s the worst fear for some people? It’s not standing before a crowd and giving a major speech. Nor is it the apprehension of being crushed in a crowded elevator, or flying.

Three ways Obama and Kim Jong Un are eerily similar- May 25, 2015
I’m not really sure who’s emulating whom, or if it’s just a creepy coincidence, but have you noticed how our own Dear Leader, Barack Obama, shares some eery similarities with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un? We’ve come up with three so far.

Memorial Day and What We Should be Remembering- May 25, 2015
It’s Memorial Day in America. Time to celebrate spring with barbecues and the first trip to the beach. Solemnity is essentially forbidden. Except among we “brave few,” as Shakespeare famously put it in Henry V, “We band of brothers.”
Ask a veteran what combat is like and you’ll get as many different answers as there are vets.
