I all the years I have been a fan of collegiate sports, the one program, I never expected a scandal from was Joe Paterno's. I've always respected what he did on and off the field.

On May 10 in 1933, the Nazis staged massive public book burnings in Germany. There is nothing more disturbing for those of us who love books, than stories of book burnings. Actually it is almost impossible to believe if we didn’t have it recorded in photos and videos.

Everything, Mary DeMuth's new book, my submission for her trailer


 Mary DeMuth invited her followers to be a part of the trailer for her new book, Everything.  This is my submission.
