Sarah Lockner was working at a California McDonald’s on September 4, 2017. Fellow coworkers notice a trail of blood leading to Lockner. She tried to attribute the blood to a heavy period, but a coworker went to the bathroom and found a newborn baby in the toilet.

Despite having done nothing wrong, backlash continues against Kentucky students

student+native+americanTruth matters. Or at least, it should.

There was a firestorm last weekend as attention was drawn to a group of young men from a Catholic school in Kentucky who attended the March for Life in Washington.

An egregious no-call in the Saints-Rams, NFC Championship game yesterday.

Missed calls happen. But I don’t know if I can think of ever seeing a more consequential no-call that had a bigger impact on a game than the missed pass interference with 1:46 left to go in the game.

The past week has been a circus with allegations of past sexual abuse levied against Supreme Corut nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

I don’t know what this man has or hasn’t done.

I do believe people are fundamentally innocent until proven guilty and that there needs to be evidence.

Some of the moves that the democrats in congress have taken in this process do make it seem like a bunch of political posturing (for instance, them sitting on Dr. Ford’s allegations for weeks and not revealing them until right before a vote. Was that out of their sincere concern for Dr. Ford and desire for her to be heard? Seems like they were very deliberate with that timing).

The whole situation is immensely complicated.
