Obama Continues to Come Through (and Saturday is Here)!

Yesterday President Barack Obama repealed the Mexico City Policy – the infamous gag rule that pulled funding from health care providers who offered (or even just talked about) certain health care options for women.  Yeah, you know what I’m talking … Continue reading

Wow!

That’s really it, just WOW! The Phillies’ bats came alive in a real big way last night, as they blew the Rays out 10 to 2. Tonight’s game five, still in Philadelphia, could be the end of the Series! It’s … Continue reading

JordanCornblog is Dragging!

The Phillies pulled out a squeaker of a win last night, and yours truly is paying the price this morning.  Well worth it, though (or I should say Werth it).  Cole Hamels looked very strong, Chase Utley came through with … Continue reading
