I have a problem overthinking everything that leaves me with the words. “I just don’t get it,” stuck in my head.

Let’s start with former heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson. Years ago he was convicted of raping a beauty pageant contestant. Then he viciously assaulted his Robin Givens, his wife at the time

Later, he was a guest on “The View,” a popular daytime women’s talk show where he blamed his violent behavior against women on his upbringing and influences from evil people.

There are few things that politicians can agree on these days.

Partisan politics run rampant in the halls of the divided Congress and the president’s lame-duck last year in office has produced little in the way of bipartisan legislation. Party infighting has made this a very divisive presidential election season.

In 2006, four friends living in the Los Angeles area decided the far reaches of the Internet made it unnecessary to deal with media moguls to share their art, poetry, music and films with the public. They left Los Angeles on a 4,000-mile trek by foot, to promote peace, love and self-expression through their various art interests. One of those four, Kevin Smith II, is now living in Tamaqua.
