Zach Wahls Video

I’m not going to try comment on the video because I know it won’t be nearly as eloquently put as Zach’s speech.  Great poise and interesting points made by such a young guy. Keep this in mind when voting on … Continue reading

UNC. On a boat.

Yes, this is old news by now.  Stay with me.  Here are my thoughts on the Carrier Classic. Whoever thought of this should be given an award of some sort.  This is the greatest public relations/marketing event I have ever seen. Quicken Loans really out did themselves  this time.
