It’s that simple.

These malapropisms will ‘peek’ your interest
Posted: February 24, 2016

Malapropism is defined in Webster’s as: The habit of unintentionally misusing words ridiculously, especially when the words are similar in sound. The English language is chock full of words that are mispronounced or misused on a daily basis by many people, such as my friend Bob.

Are Flint’s days numbered?
Posted: January 22, 2016

We live in communities with little crime, predictable futures and with reliable municipal infrastructures and superior school systems.
