Summer Jobs & the Krasnovas

"So, how's your headache?" Chelsey asked her mother. "It's gone," Ruth told her. "You've been having a lot of them lately. Don't you think you ought to go and see a doctor?" "No, I'm fine. So, how was Les Misérables?" "It was great. We were so engrossed in it that it didn't seem as long …

Homeless Beauty Contestant

On Friday night I read the touching and inspiring story of Miss Colorado USA Blair Griffith.  Blair and her mother were evicted from their home last November, just a month after she received her crown.   This was the latest of the misfortunes the 23 year old has had to deal with.  In an interview with TODAY’s Meredith Vieira, …
