Should I get this for my little 6-month-old nephew? Or is Nirvana on baby clothes something Kurt would have despised?

Hand sanitizer on clearance! I'll take this as a good sign that the craziness is almost over.

Fell at the gym on Monday and busted up my ankle. Just now reading the label on the prescription I've been taking all week. My first reaction: "Oh, this is the stuff that Paula Abdul advertises on TV!"

Not too long ago, I read how the "big clothes" fashion movement of the 1980s and early 1990s was due to Baby Boomers putting on weight as they entered their 30s and 40s -- their buying power was still greater than the next generation (Xers). The tighter styles didn't emerge until the Millennials had their own buying power around 2000. History appears to be repeating itself. Millennials are now in their 30s and 40s and fashion is getting a little looser again. cnn.com/2021/01/28/business/le

35 years ago. I was in 2nd grade at Park Forest Elementary. We were probably the only school in the nation not watching it live -- our school didn't have cable back then. usatoday.com/story/opinion/col

"Make it smooth to the groove like sandwich bread" may be one of my favorite lyrics from the 1990s.

We essentially have half the county accusing the other half of thoughtcrime - resulting in many people being canceled by platforms that claim they aren't "publishers" and don't practice editorial decision-making over content. As a result, others have voluntarily removed themselves from the same networks in the name of anti-censorship and freedom of speech. We now officially have segregated into two Americas that exist in separate worlds both geographically and virtually. This will only get worse

Oversaw my mom scrolling through Turner Classic Movies on demand. Among the movies now eligible for TCM status: License To Drive, Cruel Intentions, Clerks, Adventures in Babysitting, and Swimfan. Wow.

Yesterday I deactivated Facebook, Facebook Messenger (which I have always loathed), and Instagram. When we don't like a company, we need to speak with our feet -- or in this case, clicks -- and not rely on the government to fix the issue.
