I rarely read grocery store fashion magazines. You know the type: a model or celebrity with unnaturally white teeth gracing the cover, Photoshopped to perfection. She’s usually a nubile thing, wedged between headlines that promise “Lose 10 inches now,” “Your best sex life ever,” “I was a spendaholic,” etc. Sounds silly, right? Glamour Magazine is one of the worst, in my opinion. And with a circulation of 2.3 million, that’s a lot of terrible advice being pumped to the masses.

Go to college, get a job, and if you work hard enough, change the world for the better? Fat chance, former Gov. Buddy Roemer told an audience at Tulane University in a Wednesday afternoon stop on his third-party Presidential campaign.
“You think you run this country? They laugh at you,” Roemer said of Democrats and Republicans in Washington alike who are only motivated by campaign contributions. “You’re young. You’re stupid. You don’t give any money. You’re not important.”
Former Gov. Buddy Roemer, who dropped his often-ignored bid for the Republican Presidential nomination to continue as a third-party or independent candidate, will bring his populist, anti-corporate message to Tulane University this afternoon.
