RIP Jim Nabors, 87. LA Times obit. Forever known as Gomer Pyle on the Andy Griffith show, he had an amazing singing voice, putting out several albums, including The Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. Record Album and Kiss Me Goodbye, which yours truly remembers being advertised extensively on afternoon television. He also sang Back Home Again in Indiana at the start of the Indianapolis 500 almost every year from 1972 to 2014. Oh, and he also appears on the first (broadcast) episode of the Muppet Show. In 2013, at age 82 he married his partner of 38 years, Stan... [Read More]

President Donald Trump suggested Saturday that he is using his administration's separation of families at the US border as a negotiating tool to get Democrats to cave on his immigration demands, which include funding for a border wall, curbing legal immigration into the US, and tightening the rules for border enforcement. Trump again falsely blamed Democrats for his administration's actions, and said they could put a stop to the family separations by working with Republicans in Congress. Nearly 2,000 immigrant...

With summer weather and almost no air conditioning at Roton Middle School, seventh-grader Gracie Blackwell recently wore an outfit she and her mom thought was appropriate: a loose spaghetti strap tank top and shorts. However, the administrator that "dress-coded" her didn't - asking her to cover up her shoulders so they wouldn't distract her classmates. While the school dress code prohibits spaghetti strap tank tops and off-shoulder T-shirts for this reason, Blackwell feels it is discriminative toward females. "I think we should be allowed to show our shoulders and if a guy makes a complaint about how... [Read More]

President Donald Trump repeated a false claim that Democrats are behind his administration's "zero-tolerance" policy that separates families at the US-Mexico border. US immigration law does not require families to be split up at the border Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the policy in May. New immigration legislation introduced by House Republicans Friday does nothing to change the policy. Almost 2,000 children have reportedly been separated from their families at the border over six weeks under the policy. President Donald Trump repeated a false claim in a tweet Saturday that blames Democrats for the policy of... [Read More]
