That's easily going to be turned around over the next decade. With a resurgent downtown, the Water Campus, a reformed Government St corridor, etc. will keep young people in the city. As will low cost living....

You have your children for a few precious years. During those years they want to be around you and play with you, and to share their love with you. If you scorn the years you have with them, you'll be begging to hang out with them in the future, trying to get any chance you can with them. Money is n...

Ok, not looking things up: I know Henry the navigator. I know they fought with Spain over territory in the New World, and the Pope had to arbitrate. I remember something about they had a pretty bad dictator or junta or something. I know the capital is Lisbon. And I know I like a particular Portugues...

This is horrible. A guy says a slur (that is in a bunch of music, and in many movies with black people, and in black comedies) and uses it in private.
Then his university feels that they have to condemn a young mans thoughts and use of syntax. Then the local chapter condemns, then the national or...

Nearly everyday. My wife and I both have a drink at night in my study after we've put the kids to bed. It's our ritual where we just talk about our days, and other things, and then more often than not, I take her to the bedroom and proudly fufill my marital duties....

Most people here are from BR or Nola. Both these cities have great bakeries. So, many people here won't understand. But yes, most cities lack good bakeries I've noticed.
BR has Gambinos, Baums, Ambrosia, and Calandros to name a few. All of whom make cake icing and sell their own homemade icing, a...
