To this day, A-Rod continues to sully the record books with his drug-tainted milestones. I don’t believe any of that. When people denigrate modern baseball, their implicat...

What Woman Would You Like to See on the $10 Bill?

Timbuktu ***1/2 Nominated for last year’s Best Foreign Film Oscar Hey, let’s ban smoking in public places! Let’s make it illegal to curse in front of a child!
