I thought this was going to be about the News App on iPhone, which I absolutely love. Nothing I have encountered to date allows me to tailor my news sources to this degree. I check it probably 10 times a day....

[quote]My best friend asked me and I'm thrilled[/quote] Is this your first? I had a great deal of joy and a great sense of responsibility when my oldest understood what me being her godfather actually meant. I imagine it only gets better from here. I'll be there for her confirmation, marriage,...

[quote]Being knighted comes to mind[/quote] No where near the honor it was, say, 500 years ago. Anyone with enough money can get knighted. It's 100% PR at this point. The Queen is literally just given a list of people to be knighted. She could not give two shits about the person and what they...

Is there a greater honor than being asked to be a godparent? - LeonPhelps
I have 4 godchildren. Not one is related to me by blood but they might as well be. I would take a bullet for each one. Each of their parents chose me for a very special place of honor for their child. I take that responsibility quite seriously and try to educate the oldest (now 6) in Catholicism...

re: The new CW Superman has a Super Booty - LeonPhelps
Henry Cavill's Superman is by far the best Superman yet. I don't know how you cannot like his take on it. Supergirl is absolutely atrocious. It was so bad CBS washed their hands of it. Maybe the CW can fix it somehow....

Trump's protectionist policies will be terrible for our economy - LeonPhelps
His protectionist policies are why I cannot vote for the guy. This article from the National Review, a very conservative publication, just came out explaining the devastation of protectionism. [link=(http://www.nationalreview.com/article/438433/protectionism-donald-trump-trade-anti-growth-free-m...

His new movie looks really good - Hacksaw Ridge. The trailer says, "From the Academy Award Winning Director of Braveheart." However, no where in the entire trailer is Mel Gibson's name actually mentioned. They are clearly trying to hide it....
