As soon as I saw them, I would ask how their day was. Their responses were always the same.“Good. Do we get a snack today?”What else was I expecting four second-grade boys to say after school?

Dear Editor, More than 20 years ago when I first began teaching at Ball State in the journalism department, I met Howie Snider, who had been teaching in the department for 10 years, mostly advertising and mass media. Highly popular among students, the Muncie native had already been named university "Instructor of the Year" and would be again before he retired in 2004.
We owe Bernie Sanders for getting young people fired up about politics. But in the end, he didn’t win the Democratic nomination.What does this mean for Sanders supporters come Nov. 8?

I cried three times after the game.Twice Saturday night when I witnessed a 71-year-old World Series drought come to an end, and once more after I woke up the next morning realizing that it wasn’t a dream.Sitting by myself, I re-watched the final play of the National League Championship Series — a play that I, like so many other Chicago Cubs fans, will not soon forget.Six words from long-time Fox Sportscaster Joe Buck will resonate with fans after the Chicago Cubs knocked off the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0 in Game Six of the NLCS."The Cubs have won the pennant."
What will happen to the Cubs fans if they do win? My theory is that Cubs fans are either going to be the absolute worst-behaved fans or to be so happy that all they can do is smile. Now, before the entirety of the Midwest loses their mind, give me one second. Deep breaths, Chicago, deep breaths.
