Filed under Opinion

A new addition has forced it's way into Lake Mary. Let's be real, it is the most disgusting thing yet. I may just be me over thinking the process, but these new hall passes travel with every student to the bathroom. Being hung on the door, placed on the floor or even falling in the toilet- every pa...

    Obama may be one of the coolest presidents in the history of America. He's got awesome teeth, he's a baller, and he's a ninth cousin to Brad Pitt (which is pretty weird.) He's also achieved quite a bit, despite Congress being majority Republican. He's had to use executive orders m...
