The Day My Grandpa Les Singleton Met JFK on Superior Street in Duluth, Minnesota

All this week, we've seen a lot of specials on the assassination of JFK as we mark the 50th anniversary of that fateful day in Dallas.  About two months before his trip to Dallas, he visited Duluth.  He was in the Northland on September 24th, 1963 and spent a night at the Hotel Duluth, now the Greysolon Plaza.  He was scheduled to give a speech at UMD and there was to be a motorcade in Downtown Duluth.  That's when my Grandpa Les Singleton, a firefighter at the time, came up with his plan.

Anthony Weiner “Carlos Danger” VS Peg the Teacher [VIDEO]

In case you've been living under a rock, Anthony Weiner has been running for mayor for New York City.  He was also the congressman that had the whole "sexting" scandal not long ago.   So he did what politicians do:  go get help.  But it didn't help, and he's admitted to doing it all over again.   But nope, he's still running for mayor.  Gotta love this woman for not backing down when she confronted him.  It's a little uncomfortable for us to watch, but not as much as it is for Carlos Danger.
