Goodness gracious! There might be enough of them to give them their own category! As for our new Mayor, Bill DiBlasio, he's just [...]
Sniff, sniff, sniff. Is that pot I smell? Well, yes it is. So it certainly seems. First daughter, Malia Obama was photographed smoking what appears to be a doobie at the Lollapalooza Music Festival.
