Kobe Bryant was more than just an exceptional basketball player.

Anthony Fauci has been dealing in COVID19 facts since the pandemic began, and his most recent word on what is still to come should send a shiver down the spine of every America.

College athletics has a long and despicable history of covering up crimes by their coaches and players in order to keep cashing fat conference and television contract checks. Louisiana State University is just the latest, but certainly the most blatant, in how they seek to change the subject when it comes to their athletes taking part in sexual assault. That's only part of the story, as local Louisiana media is more than happy to assist in the coverup, proving games and scores are more important that sexual assault.
Far too many people remember Joe Frazier as merely a foil for Muhammad Ali, when in reality he was much more. In his new book, "Smokin' Joe: The Life of Joe Frazier", Mark Kram, Jr. details an intimate and revealing picture of the man who rose to heavyweight champion from dirt-poor roots, was much smarter than he was given credit for, and who in the end proved to be a true heart and soul not only of boxing, but of his Philadelphia home.
