  16. BREAKING NEWS: Norman Lear, legendary TV producer, dies at age 101 #RIP
  17. How much of it do YOU have? #grammar
  18. I noticed recently that post previews no longer show up when I’m writing a new post. Instead of the post, I get a 404/Page Not Found error. IS THIS HAPPENING TO ANYONE ELSE ALL OF A SUDDEN? #blogchat
  19. Some people can’t resist the temptation to be cruel, even in the aftermath of the Rosalynn Carter funeral, a time when respect should be a given. | Politics Should’ve Paused for the Rosalynn Carter Funeral
