The Hockey Writers: Thoughts on Joel Quenneville

As an unabashed Blackhawks fan in my personal hockey life, I am still in a state of shock at the team's recent losing streak, as well as the rumors flying about the possible firing of Joel Quenneville.

As a hockey columnist for The Hockey Writers, I take a more neutral viewpoint of the situation, focusing not on what Quenneville has meant to me as a Hawks fan, but instead where he will end up should Chicago can him.

Political Musings: Obama Backs Super-PAC, Illustrates Need for Reform

Four years ago, President Barack Obama ran on a platform of "change we can believe in". He kept hammering home the point over and over again that Washington, and that we should trust an outsider like him to fix what was ailing our country and our government. The American public by and large bought into Obama's campaign, and they elected him by a huge margin over Republican nominee John McCain.

With the 2012 election looming, most experts are pointing to it as a referendum mostly on the economy, so the Obama campaign is already revving into high gear to highlight the positive things that the president has done in that regard. Whether it be bringing jobless rates down to their lowest levels since 2007, helping the stock market to its highest levels since before 9/11, or the successful killing of Osama bin Laden, the president and his campaign are already putting their financial ducks in a row in order to ensure that the American people know full well everything that Obama has done in his term in office.
