You Are Loved
I know two little girls who are burying their mother today. Well, I don’t really know them and I didn’t really know their mother, either. She was in the same group

adjustments. He changed the play. The QB sees something he doe...

Excuse me, but you're on the wrong side of history.
At some point, you have to stop being polite. The rejection rhetoric of our Women’s March on Washington is
being led by women. Yep. Let’s be perfectly clear: When a woman takes power, she isn’t
taking it from other women. My Black Lives Matter sisters and m...

Sorry, I can't, it's Football Season.
I get that I sound crazy. Really. When people suggest we go to the Oyster Festival and
I say, “Sure, the Redskins play at 8:30 that night and the Panthers are off.” Or when people ask about a birthday party and I say, “No,
that’s NC State weekend. We’ll be ...
