This past Sunday was the 44th annual Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run where participants faced more competition than just out running each other – high winds challenged runners who walked, ran and sprinted to the finish line.

  Poor Marco. He’s not even in the 2016 race anymore and he still can’t catch a break. And that ducking sucks. Yesterday the former presidential candidate misspelled the name of his own country in a letter sent to the Alaska GOP asking them not to release his delegates just …

The pride of Colorado doesn’t age, he only gets more mysterious. Be sure to wish Mr. Lira a happy birthday tomorrow!

Daniel Lippman is just like everyone else. He co-authors one of the most influential political digests in DC, climbed the Himalayas when he was five, and wakes up at the crack of dawn without an alarm clock… or coffee. Ok maybe not like everyone else, but definitely impressive. He’s been interviewed by The …

If you’re not participating in it yourself, you know someone who is. March Madness is here and compared to most things we’ve seen in the news, it’s one of the more tame events. Even if you know nothing about college basketball or sports, you’re either rooting for the team wearing your favorite …
