How will history treat President Obama?

Let’s pretend that its 10 years from now. It’s 2025 and we’re looking back over the first quarter of our century. I have no idea who will be in the White House. It could be Hillary Clinton winding up her second term or perhaps Jeb Bush. Or, maybe even a name that no one back in 2015 would have readily recognized. But as we look back, whether it’s the historians or the media recalling days gone by, what will they say about President Obama?

Time to finally expand Medicaid coverage

Last year it was the talk of the General Assembly.
This year, save for making the proposal and watching it get unceremoniously voted down, the expansion of Medicaid was barely talked about.

The origin, evolution of Valentine’s Day

Have you ever wondered just what kind of saint possibly could  be responsible for Valentine’s Day?
Come on, when you think of all that goes on at Valentine’s Day — from all the romantic greeting cards to the Victoria Secret special surprise gifts — I have a tough time imagining the saint who could be behind it all. All I can say is that he must have been quite a guy, or at the very least not your average saint.
