    Not often you see stories on SIDs in the news, but with someone of Debby Jennings' longevity, it is an interesting story. And I also didn't know that Bud Ford also had similar issues with the higher-ups.

    Tip of the iceberg.

    Lots of stories swirling that Dave Hart swung a rather dull axe and cleared out lots of healthy, mature trees to make room for his saplings from Alabama...claims that he forced out Pat Summitt, and then cancelled a live interview with Robin Roberts because he featured Pat was going to blow the whistle on her treatment...and he's apparently purged files of emails and other docs, etc.
