In-Mistrust-We-TrustA recent Gallup poll listed the most- and least-trusted professions in America. At the bottom of the list: car salesmen and members of Congress. It’s not hard to understand why our politicians rate so poorly — scandals, myopia, obstinance, party loyalty over common good, fiscal cliffs. All have left voters exasperated and confused.

A sophomore at an Arkansas high school hit the viral video goldmine after his dunk video was posted on YouTube. Wow.

Victor Dukes threw down a vicious one-hander during a matchup between Dukes’ Nettleton High School and Manila High at the NEA Tournament.

As the broadcaster describes in the video, “Victor Dukes just brought down the Convocation Center, and he just injured a player with a dunk.”

Nettleton won the game 41-37.

Really Gatorade? 40 years of sports hydration science? You mean putting sugar and salt in water for 40 years. You’re welcome for the new slogan.
