Let’s talk about Kyle Rittenhouse

One carries a simple handgun for protection, but a person who carries the long, inconvenient, sizable AR-15 assault rifle that Rittenhouse had, appears to be a premeditated act more than a precaution.

Happiness comes in waves

Surfing has become my personal coping mechanism for quarantine blues. Completely new to the sport, I found an old board in my grandma’s basement and decided it would be the perfect pastime to explore in Miami.

All aboard the malarkey express: Joe Biden tries to have it...

Sadly for the former vice president, he can run as many times for president as he likes (three, and counting!), but he will never be able to run far enough away from his record.
