    • After Being Stared Down by a Couple in Cracker Barrel, This Dad Received a Note About Parenting

      When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.

It seemed like a move that needed to happen, as Indy’s on-field performance over the last few years has declined while rumblings of a rift between Grigson and Chuck Pagano have been out there for a while. McAfee has been in Indianapolis since 2009, so he’s seen the inner workings of this organization before and during the Grigson years.

    • White House press secretary attacks media for accurately reporting inauguration crowds

      (CNNMoney) "That's what you guys should be writing and covering," new White House press secretary Sean Spicer angrily lectured reporters on Saturday during his first remarks from the podium of the press briefing room. He was referring to the delay in Senate confirmation for President Donald Trump's pick to lead the CIA, Congressman Mike Pompeo, but the comment came after a long digression about how many people had shown up to watch Trump be sworn in as president. "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period," Spicer said, contradicting all available data. Aerial photos have indicated that former president Barack Obama's first inauguration attracted a much larger crowd.

      The Trumps are moving into the White House today, and Inauguration Day started off on an awkward note when Melania Trump brought along a massive parting gift for the Obamas for their first photo op together. When Barack Obama and Michelle Obama greeted Donald Trump and his wife for their coffee date before the swearing-in ceremony, the Melania handed the departing First Lady what looked to be a large Tiffany & Co. gift box — you can’t miss that signature blue — and everyone basically struggled with deciding what to do with it. Should they hold it as they pose photographers? Should hide it behind their backs? It was a awkward back-and-forth, and the face Michelle made during the whole thing was

The new layout was first spotted while Trump, 70, performed his first official acts as POTUS when he signed a series of executive orders.
