The gardens were once the private estate of Pierre S. du Pont, though an arboretum had been started from the family that owned it before, the Peirce family, who themselves purchased the land from William Penn.

Yup, since getting back in May from my trip in April, I’ve been putting this off for far too long. Due to popular demand, I’ve pared down 5,000 photos (not all of them winners, admittedly) and so here we go. Gather around the couch, fix your eyes on the projector […]

In this shocking, unedited video, Andrew Breitbart proudly announces to an audience that he was on crack cocaine during the birth of his children, is in rehab, has sexual problems, is a narcissist and in the end confesses, “I’m kind of a fraud.” Should he be forced to resign? Please […]

If you don’t know what Spanx is and are just bursting at the seams to find out, much as I’d like to stretch the truth on this, I can’t hold it in any longer. Spanx is essentially the modern girdle, strong elastic-wear for women and now for men. Thankfully, the […]
