Today I have a new segment “A-Train Asks” where I am going to pose three questions to the reader. I’d like you to consider and answer each in your own mind. I’ll be giving my answers as well. Before I jump right into the questions, a quick anecdote about from where my questions stem. I ...

Not So Breaking News: I Finally Remember Where I Heard “Dilly Dilly” Before.

If you watch the NFL then you have seen Bud Light’s Dilly Dilly ad campaign. When I saw my first “dilly, dilly” commercial I gave it a slight chuckle, it was kinda funny. The problem with any successful ad campaign is that once it becomes too popular it gets really grating. Now every idiot with a ...

No, this isn’t “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” but in fact a true story straight from A-Train HQ where one of our reporter’s (me) got the scoop on a local rebel, who defied the Mars Corporation’s recommendations to share his bags of M&M’s. (also me) You see we no longer live in a land where ...

Why is ABC Bringing Back Roseanne?

Am I taking crazy pills or is ABC actually bringing Roseanne back to television? Who was clamoring for more Roseanne Barr? I just assumed her character and John Goodman’s would have both succumbed to heart disease by 2018 but apparently, they are alive and well. I remember watching Roseanne as a kid and thinking it ...
