I have the Sportscenter app and it actually gave me an update on the National Spelling Bee! When did spelling become a sport? "Oh, yeah, it's because of an old spelling injury... "

Trade one American deserter for five known terrorists? Yes we can!

A company in Washington State is introducing marijuana-infused coffee. Well, there's the solution to absolutely nothing.

Alexander Shulgin, known as the "Father of ecstasy" has died at age 88. That's too bad -- right before Father's Day. Then again, if anyone's kids are going to forget about Father's Day, it would be his.
