While the Women’s March in January and the Tax March last weekend had more than their fair share of clever signs, March for Science Chicago blew both of them away.

Aaron Hernandez Dead from Apparent Suicide; Twitter Users Make Really Bad Jokes

aaron-hernandez-patriots

Aaron Hernandez was an awful human being; there’s really no disputing that.

Anyone who deliberately takes another person’s life is truly beyond the pale of description. Repugnant, deplorable, immoral, monstrous, disgusting….choose your words but at the end of the day these are still just words and they can never truly articulate the atrocity that is intentionally taking another human being’s life from them.

cubs

The party itself was a transcendent bacchanal, but now the hangover has set in. We had a transcendent euphoria of a time, but now the huge bill is due and the nausea and headaches are severe. It doesn’t mean we have any regrets at all about what we experienced, but it does make us wonder where we go from here.

The Chicago Cubs winning the World Series for the first time in 108 years was the last Great American Sports News Story (Capitalization Intentional). Everything else that’s happened since seems inconsequential by comparison.

With Donald J. Trump and Vladimir Putin we have seen endless coincidences and collaboration. However, we have not seen evidence of definitive collusion. “The smoking gun,” as one would proverbially put it, hasn’t been found yet. However, the United States Senate is investigating whether or not Russia/Putin colluded with the Trump campaign to alter the outcome of the 2016 United States Presidential election.

As of now, the committee’s investigation has been saying that it’s too early to know whether the two parties colluded or not.

Tomi Lahren Dismissal from TheBlaze Could Be an Example of “Failing Upwards”

tomi-lahren

While many rejoiced over news of TheBlaze network firing polarizing hostess Tomi Lahren, the schadenfreude could be both short-lived and premature. There’s so much conflicting information on this topic right now that it’s still TBD how exactly Tomi Lahren will leave the Glenn Beck run operation, and whether or not this results in a blessing-in-disguise for the polarizing and extremist talking head hate-monger.

Neither camp: Tomi Lahren and her representation, or TheBlaze, are responding to requests for comment right now.

It’s all leading to ramped up speculation, and when it’s all said and done, this might be a boon for the career of Lahren. Sadly, the Blaze may have just been holding her back

Donald Trump is the 45th President of these United States of America, like it or not. This is reality despite his losing the popular vote by 2.8 million and receiving votes from just 27% of the eligible American electorate. As painful as it is to say, he is the man who is currently in the world’s most powerful position and as such has influence in places that you would never imagine.

Take for instance the League Cup of English football. With the EFL Cup Final set to kickoff on Sunday, and Manchester United vying with Southampton for the trophy, the Manchester Evening News unearthed this gem from the last time United won the title.
