Last month I said goodbye to a mentor.
We have all heard the phrase: “fake news.”
America’s Pastime is fading away, some may not even know what I’m talking about when I refer to it as that. American’s prefer to be entertained by men who abuse women instead, or lie about it, or even lie about their friends doing it.

To me, there is a clear winner when the “best sport to watch” debate begins. Sure, some will contest this for a number of reasons, and justifiably so. Good lord, if we all wanted to watch the same thing then the entire world would be enthralled with the table-tennislike action bounding back …
The Treasury Department made a welcome and long coming move this week announcing Wednesday that abolitionist Harriet Tubman’s image will appear on a new series of $20 bills. Tubman will be the first African-American to appear on U.S. paper currency and the first woman in more than a century.…

Jordan Spieth could have made history last weekend; he could have been the first golfer to win the Masters in wire-to-wire fashion in consecutive years.
