Super Bowl Letdown

Former “Facts of Life” star Lisa Whelchel discusses the incident with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake at the 2004 Superbowl.

One Letter

What’s the power of a letter? Have you seen with your eyes or felt with your heart all that a letter can convey? I have. It can bring everything from anger, frustration, annoyance, and faithlessness to comfort, peace, relief, and pride. The distinction is all in the eye of the beholder.
