What’s Going on with the Cubs ??

After 108 years the jinx was finally broken when the Cubs finally won the World Series, but now it's looking like it was just a fluke. The stars aligned, luck was finally on their side, but in the end, they weren't really that good a baseball team. At least that could...

Memoir: After All, How Big Could a Sinkhole Be?

Memoir: Running Over My Cousin

My cousin, Kenny, was jogging alongside me. I had to pedal slower to keep pace with him. He was ten years old, I was eleven. We hadn’t been friends very long.
