Essay: So a Black Guy Walks Into a Starbucks.. Barista, Bye
Wed Mar 18, 2015
Kudos. Excellent article. Since this concept isn't being tested in Starbucks in the DC area, and being curious, I raised it with a barista I know after reading another article on Thursday. She, a young African American woman, wasn't aware of it. Her reaction was she …
Starbucks wants baristas to talk about race with customers
Tue Mar 17, 2015
Not a good idea to discuss at the register with Starbucks employees. Starbucks should discontinue this. There's nothing wrong with discussing race issues at all, though it should be done in an appropriate manner. This isn't an appropriate manner and could also put an employee in ha …
Pastor Juan McFarland Barred From Church After AIDS, Adultery Scandal
Fri Dec 5, 2014
Didn't know you could get AIDS from a church? Guess God does work in mysterious ways. NBC...please either teach your reporters how to write, copyeditors how to proof and edit...or better yet...hire me. Lead is poorly written. Obviously, knowing basic grammar doesn't exis …
Mormon Podcaster John Dehlin in Limbo Over Excommunication
Mon Jun 30, 2014
Makes one ask the questions: Why would anyone want to belong to an established religion? What purpose does religion serve any more? Religions have clearly moved away from their core purpose and are more discriminatory than ever. They are truly losing meaning and relevance. &n …
John Stamos defends '90s 'dumb TV' against blogger
Mon May 19, 2014

Obscene flower display is 'Great Train Robber' Biggs' final dig at authority
Fri Jan 3, 2014
Must be a new 21st century British thing. When did the two fingers forming a "V" become obscene. From the '60s through today, when formed with palm facing outward showing the other fingers and thumb, it means peace.
'They're beautiful': Twins born in different years as 2013 turns to 2014
Thu Jan 2, 2014
Congrats to both families. Great tax dependents to claim...one for 2013 and two for 2014 when the time comes. And why can't people commenting just be happy rather than so negative and nasty about things all the time. No wonder the world is a mess. As my mother taught us, if y …
Obama open to changes on NSA spying
Sat Dec 21, 2013
Not sure who came up with this idea for the new MSNBC site, but it's awful. The time has come to find news with another source. No longer a useful news site sorry to say.
Oprah's 'biggest yard sale ever' earns over $600K for charity
Mon Nov 4, 2013
Just curious how an auction could be talked and written about as a yard sale. Is Oprah tryiing to sound like common folk?
