Sharla Shults's curator insight, September 17, 2013 7:27 PM

Tales of buried treasure and curses following along have always tempted the pallet of fascination. If you knew a treasure carried with it a curse, would you still go hunting for it? Many people do and many die but are those deaths truly results of the curse or simply coincidental? You decide...

Marilyn Armstrong's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:36 PM

Kenneth Weene's insight:

I know this is a Democratic leaning source, but they tend to be pretty honest. Simply put, the more people are learning about Obamacare, the more they are appreciating it. The more the right lies, the less popular they become. Funny thing about that: In the long run facts and honesty are stronger than lies and bigotry.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

While this homophobic comment might garner a few votes among people who wouldn't vote for a Black leader anyway, it embarrasses the GOP candidate and his party. (Not that dumb from GOP right is unusual.) Booker is absolutely correct to say that his sexual orientation has nothing to do with anything. It is his intelligence, compassion, and character that make him an outstanding mayor and that will make him a great senator.
