Over the weekend, I mentioned that Saturday Night Live (SNL) had a series of sketches that packed some punches. One of them was the Open Cold, which featured Alec Baldwin reprising his role as Trump. Read more…
Still lots of news & opinions about Syria, as well as levity. SNL had some great sketches last night. There’s one in particular that isn’t getting much attention, perhaps because the humor was lost on many. You can find it after the jump.

Update: Tom Perez has won the DNC … Continue reading →

My parents could afford the dime store packages of valentines, so my mom would buy them, we’d sign them, and take them to school to put in the bulletin board “mailboxes” we had made in art class. Then parents would bring (or send with the kids) cupcakes and sometimes punch for a small party.
