Notre Dame is a second-half team. Everyone knew that, and the Irish's late comebacks had already become things of legend in this year's NCAA Tournament.
When researching a topic you don't always find what you are looking for, but sometimes you find something even better. Recently I was looking through spring of 1919 issues of Stars and Stripes, the U.S. military newspaper.

It is the nature of the job that a legislator must sometimes defy popular opinion to do what he knows is best for his community.
The Mississippi legislative session ended Wednesday not with a bang, but with a whimper, to borrow a line from T.S. Elliott.
