Quake Does Little Damage, Felt In Michigan.

I felt it. Was sitting at my desk on the 33rd floor of the WFGR Townsquare Media Tower downtown Grand Rapids when my head started shaking. Felt like I was having a weird stroke. But then it felt familiar. Last year there was a small earthquake in Ontario, and I felt that one too.

A terrible tragedy at the Indiana State Fair left 5 people dead and at least 45 people injured, as a storm front was moving in.  The Indiana State Police called the fair organizers and reported strong winds causing a “pause” in the concert after Sara Barilles left the stage and before the country act Sugarland was set to perform.

The Debt Ceiling Has Been Raised! The Debt Ceiling Has Been Raised!

Look I'm no Bill O'Reilly or Chris Matthews or anyone super political like that. But I understand enough to know if the dolts we sent to Washington didn't get their act together and take the steps to keep us from killing the world economy, it would be bad. Very bad.

The Casey Anthony Dunk Tank…OK Or In Bad Taste?

So the Lexington Lions Club Bluegrass Fair in Lexington Kentucky decided to have a dunk tank. No biggie. A dunk tank at a carnival or fair is as old as the bearded lady or corn dogs. And in the heat we have been having, it might be a refreshing way to stay cool.
