JFK Assassinated 52 Years Ago Today

President John F. Kennedy was assassinated fifty-two years ago on this date, November 22, 1963 while in a motorcade in Dallas Texas.

The Illinois Lottery Stinks to High Heaven

First, I’ll state the obvious, I don’t know all the details in this story nor do I really care about the details.  What little info I have is coming from what I read here and there. This is just my opinion and I’m entitled to it.  Every time I hear something about this story […]
