    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: Stop Kony 2012

    I was just reading an article on the Stop Kony initiative that might douse that fire a little bit. Bottom line, research your charities.

    I read some not so flattering stuff about the organization that you should maybe read first. In my opinion the cause is noble enough but still, a little sketchy:

    Be careful -- activism is big business. These people are very good at playing on emotions to get your money. They have car payments and too-big mortgages like many others.

    Agreed with those urging caution. Certainly this is a good cause, but just know that there's more to the story than just the 30 minute video.

    I think it's a pretty fascinating insight into the human mind to see just how quickly this has caught on with the college-aged demographic though. Spreading like wildfire over social media.
