Fox Bids 'American Idol' Farewell

Date: 05/11/2015

After 15 seasons, Fox has decided to cancel American Idol. Since Simon Cowell's departure in 2010, ratings have continued to decline.

Over the past year ...

Date: 11/13/2014

I’m reading a book about Albert Einstein, a fantastic bio written by Walter Isaacson. One of the things that strikes me about the man, beyond his brilliance, is the spirit of his times.
