A “Boy-Eat-Dog” World
In addition to crooning love-makin’ ditties, the president of the United States demonstrated over the weekend that he can deliver a joke—even if that joke refers to him eating dogs.

WANNA GET AWAY?
What Father Martin McVeigh meant to do was project a PowerPoint presentation to a group of Irish parents of children preparing for their first communion.
