It’s All About Redemption

My wife and I sat before our televisions, utterly transfixed. Neither of us are particularly into golf, but we were into it that day.

Wrong Is Always Wrong

We live in a very divided country, as far as politics are concerned. It is hard to find a cable news program where, if people are on the air discussing an issue where they disagree with each other, they do not wind up talking over each other and yelling at each other. We live in...
