Just saying but the Latin you took in high school to improve your SAT scores is much more useful in real life than the ballroom dancing your wife made you take after you were married... I agree 100% with Bruce Allen on the release of Bob Sanders by the Colts: "Can you imagine if Bill Belichick released a star player over Twitter, like the Colts did? The vitriol would be off the charts"... Life lessons from science - at the event horizon a negative particle gets sucked into a black hole while a positive particle escape. I'm going to do my best be a positive particle... Awkward ad... The Wisconsin teacher walkout could have the effect of more support across the country for school vouchers. Good!...
