People are saying…
With all the fumbles, sacks, miscalls and mishaps, it is remarkable that the Carolina Panthers lost the Super Bowl by only 14 points.  The final score was 24 to 10.

Who will be the next President of the United States? 
 New Hampshire voters braved the snow to give victory in the Democratic primary to the Democratic Socialist, Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton, the wife of former President Bill Clinton.  Some see this race for the progressive mantle as a battle between the pragmatic Hillary, and the idealist Bernie.  On the Republican side, bad boy, Donald Trump came in first and Ohio Governor John Kasich came in second. It will be an exciting year as we watch to see who among these will win out.

The most important news this week might be the emergence of the Zika virus which has left thousands of new-born babies with small heads and neurological disorders (microcephaly).  There has been an “explosion” (according to the World Health Organization) of cases in Brazil, and it threatens to expand throughout Latin America.  So far, there have been few cases in the United States.
Some people think that Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance was too “unapologetically black.”  What do you think? (reply to aboulton@stevenson.edu)
