Tomorrow is election day. Mercifully, for people living in swing states, the campaign ads, the mass mailers, the robo-calls will all end tomorrow. I’m excited to be able to answer my phone again, without listening for that tell-tale pause after I say, “Hello.” (Fair warning, if you’re a slow talker, be prepared to be hung
At the end of Halloween, I rummage through my kids bag and extract my “Dad tax” for helping with his costume and taking him around the neighborhood. Skipping over the fact that the candy bars have gotten smaller (there’s nothing “fun” in the fun size half-a-bite candy), here’s a list of the top candies I’m
