“I work hard everyday to combat racism and prejudices of all kinds. I want to apologize to the Jewish Community and anyone I have offended,”

The key to a fake (and late!) apology!

Sunday Focus: The Leader of The Biggest NCAA Cinderella Story? The University of Maryland, Baltimore County?

He grew up in Birmingham...

"In athletics or in academics, it’s not often that Dr. (Freeman A.) Hrabowski III, a mathematician and professed “mega-nerd,” thinks something is impossible.
Dr. Hrabowski, who has led the institution for 26 years, was born in Birmingham, Ala., at the start of the civil rights movement, and grew up in the same segregated neighborhood as former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. He spent five days in jail at age 12 for participating in a civil rights protest. He obtained his undergraduate degree, from Hampton University, at 19, and his doctorate, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, at 24."

About Stephen Hawking

In 2011, his comments to the Guardian explained his belief about the afterlife, saying, “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”
Hawking, who was born Jan. 8, 1942, and lived with his disease for much longer than expected, also said during the interview: “I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.”

The Porn Star on 60 Minutes

"For a week, the world has waited: When would “60 Minutes” air its interview with porn star Stormy Daniels alleging an affair with President Trump? CBS has been silent. Now there is a planned date, March 25, according to two people familiar with the timing."

About that photo up top

     I had someone ask me about the photo I'm currently using behind the title of the website.

 I was experimenting with  a new camera in Vietnam in 1970 and caught this exposure warped photo of skimpily dressed dancing girls performing for the soldiers in Quang Tri. That was before cell phones, kids, so you don't see those little light sources being held by the men in the crowd.
