Plastic bags are one of the most littered items in history. Many plastic bags become airborne litter tangled in tree limbs, clogging up storm drains or billowing like a sail on the ocean. As a result, they have been dubbed the "national flower" in South Africa because so many can be seen flapping from fences and caught in bushes. Plastic bags also have become the most common manmade item seen by sailors at sea.

The March for Babies
is a 4-mile fundraiser walk that takes place on April 25 across the US. It raises money for the March of Dimes research and programs that help Moms have full-term healthy babies. It also funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies. Having gone through two difficult pregnancies myself, I can easily relate to this cause. During those trying times, the March of Dimes website was the place that I turned to for information, guidance, and hope.

When it comes to Passover, soup with matzo balls is a must, but from there, the menu varies from family to family.
Passover commemorates the escape of the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. It's one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays, and one in which family meals take on great importance.

If you can't stand the heat, manufacture a hate-crime epidemic.
After years of covering racial hoaxes on college campuses and victim sob stories in the public arena, I've encountered countless opportunists who live by that demented mindset. At best, the fakers are desperately seeking 15 minutes of infamy. At worst, their aim is the criminalization of political dissent.

As a culture, we're wistful about our tallest buildings.
Cities love to show off grand buildings as testaments to human endeavor. Illuminated skyscrapers are a region's trophies, towering evidence of its greatness. For many, the drama of an illuminated and looming edifice rivals the magic of the North Star, guiding travelers over long distances and seducing those of us who cherish the illusion of fraternizing with God.
