Thursday is Thanksgiving and sadly, it sometimes gets lost in the shuffle. This is that uniquely American holiday that falls between Memorial Day and Christmas.

Environment not a partisan issue

Climate change is not a hoax just because the president elect says it is. It's no more a hoax than evolution is. And it's no more a hoax than God is.

Why football?

Make you will known
