    Isn't it just a little ironic for a paper to be named the Progressive and not have a Web site?

    This ad seems to say that because it is Corey Brewer's hometown, it is a great job.

    Uh, that's all I need to hear. I'm sold.

    Other than Corey Brewer, that team was horrible. I saw them play several times against out-of-state small schools. They lost all of those games.
