I don't mind buying presents, but I think that when the bride and groom accept the present, they are entering into a covenant with me, much like they are with each other. The way I see it, they are committing to stay to ... (more)

"Twenty Minutes Away From the Show"



For the sake of argument, let's say that at least part of winning the Democratic primary for mayor is voter turnout, which is, in turn, dependent on having energetic supporters and a solid organization.And last night, it was all C.

Students Use Credit Cards To Pay Tuition



A nationwide survey by Smith College researchers found that 23 percent of students are using credit cards to pay for tuition and fees and 52 percent are using them for textbooks and school supplies.
