Twas a Pets Night Before Christmas

Twas a Pet’s Night Before Christmas “Twas a pet’s night before Christmas and all through the house – not a creature was stirring, especially the mouse — ’cause that mouse knows who’s in the house.

Michael Vick Doesn’t Deserve to be on an NFL Pedestal

Michael Vick is no hero. Social media can illustrate how American’s feel about any topic, at least where our emotional temperature is at. In November, the National Football League announced that Michael Vick would represent the NFL as a Pro Bowl team as captain at the January game. A change.org petition was instantly created, and…
