Drop Cupcakes, Not Bombs

“Make Love, Not War”,  “War is expensive, Peace is priceless”, Drop Beats, Not Bombs”, “Go Solar, not Ballistic”…..As clever has these anti-war slogans are, I think they’ve been trumped….

Autotune the News and the 2012 Presidential Election

We’ve heard speculation about the big names such as Pawlenty, Gingrich, & Palin, but nobody has come out for sure quite yet. Even so, I’m already excited. Election season is my favorite sports season.

Excited yet? 😉
