Remembering The Late Charlie Murphy

It has only been a few days since the announcement that you passed away, and as a fan, I was devastated when I heard the news. Whether it was your deep raspy voice, your Brooklyn accent or the fact that you were brutally honest, you left as one of the most memorable comedians of this era. Many people did not know that you were a musician, author and proud father but my hopes are that this letter will describe the true entertainer you truly were.

Donald Trump's No Autocrat, Right?

As Donald Trump's presidency progresses, more and more commentators are starting to label him an autocrat. Despite my concerns about the man, I think such criticism is a tad harsh and uncalled for.

And so far I haven't heard any reports of blatant imperialistic invasions of Canada or Mexico.
