Seems a lot of people are pretty worked up over the "How I Met Your Mother" finale, but I liked it a lot. I don't envy any writer who has to end a popular show. It's an impossible task and nothing will please everyone. But this was a great show that was always about friendship, happiness and love, intertwined with some of the sad realities that life brings, and I think the finale captured it all really nicely.

Two pro sports franchises are named after them, but there are fewer than 200 panthers roaming around Florida, and they're running out of space to grow. 
Less than 200 remain as ranchers, conservationists, state and federal officials debate recovery

The Internet strikes again! This is amazing. Type in a year, and watch "The Office" whisk you away to that year with dozens of cultural references from that year.

Proud of this first in a three-part series I assigned and edited on coal's effect on life in West Virginia, a forgotten corner of the U.S. in so many ways.

I dug up my first review (from September 2005) of "How I Met Your Mother," which ends tonight after nine seasons: "There will be inevitable comparisons to "Friends," but Ted and his pals will make a name for themselves if CBS gives them a real chance." #himym

“Extended family won’t speak to me anymore,” says a man who spoke out against coal in West Virginia. The second in our three-part series is live now.
