In my opinion, we can never say enough "thank you" messages or show enough support for our men and women fighting for our freedom. Chris Rutter is a friend of mine from Clinton, Mo., and I felt compelled to share his Facebook post from earlier today.

Cinco De-WHAT-O? Find Out What Cinco de Mayo Really Celebrates

So the weekend is here and you and your friends are all going to go out and celebrate Cinco de Mayo, right? Of COURSE! It's what everyone does on Cinco de Mayo weekends. Pub crawls, ordering your favorite drink by the name "cervesa" just to be cool, cramming down the chips and salsa. Fun word to say, isn't it? "Sallllsaaaa."

But why are you celebrating it? Why, especially, are you celebrating it if you have absolutely no "South of the Border" blood in you at all? Would you celebrate Buddha's Birthday as they do in Korea each May 17?  Let me guess: ONLY if there were partying and drinking involved, right?

What About the Explosion in Texas?

We have all been taken in by the coverage of the Boston Marathon Bombing, the aftermath, and the search for the suspects that ended in the death of one and the apprehension of the other. It was another example of social media and our need for "instant gratification and information" coming into play before accuracy, and admittedly, as a member of the media, it made me a little embarrassed. Instead of "getting it right," it seemed a lot of the media outlets we have come to rely on focused on "getting it first." And it wasn't correct.
