Rice Report: What Is a Good Mother, Anyway?

I would like to take a moment to wish all the mothers of the world a Happy Mother’s Day! I would also like to be honest about some things.  I’m not what most would consider a modern mom.  My parenting style is the way it is because I was raised by very strict southern women.

Should Sports Rank Among List of Polarizing Topics?

I often advocate the avoidance of controversial topics on social media.  Bar rules apply – no politics, no religion. There are times I think no sports could be added to this list. It’s crazy to consider, given that bars are where many congregate to watch games. Don’t worry. I’m not lobbying for this anytime, soon. I also notice not all sports could fall under this...
