Detroit Finally Shows Up for a Game

  Okay, I admit. I made dinner – a really good turkey bolognese sauce and whole wheat spaghetti. I drank half of a bottle of Shiraz. I had to pick up my daughter from work at 3.

Worse, I don’t know that any national tragedy has ever permanently change the way the US,… Continue reading Will Virginia Tech’s tragedy change the way a nation thinks?
