Kickass Woman Of The Day: 100-Year-Old Gladys Misiewicz Is Training For Her First 5K

Age Is Nothing But A Number

5 Current TV Shows That Get More Praise Than They Deserve

Listen, I get it. People like what people like, and, with so many options available, complaining about the inferior choices made by others is kind of pointless and petty when you could just as easily skip those things altogether in favor of something else. So, in that respect, that I’m about to spend a couple thousand words of column space explaining why the shows a lot of you enjoy are a little more beloved than they deserve to be might seem like kind of a dick move.
