As the results start coming in tonight, we already have your cocktails planned: the Republican cocktail party and the Democrat cocktail party. (Not to be too...
Election-weary voters in need of a vacation can take some inspiration from U.S. presidents past and present by traveling like the president. While you can’t book a stay at John F.

The main reason most of us are close with our friends is because we have things in common with them. We may have the same hobbies, location, jobs, etc., but there are certain "off the table" topics — religion, politics, and morals — that can be serious friendship deal-breakers during the heat of a conversation or argument.  If you heed one piece...
Will Ferrell
When Will Ferrell isn't traipsing around Milwaukee hawking Old Milwaukee beer and doing manly things like catching fish with his bare hands, he's asking you to vote.
