“Progress is slow, but I’m in it for the long hall…”

Aaron Sorkin is back, and in true form!

HBO has released the first official trailer for Sorkin’s new drama, “The Newsroom,” which focuses on the people behind the scenes at a nightly cable news program, most specifically the main network anchor (Jeff Daniels) and his rediscovery of sorts.

The rest of the all-star cast includes Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher Jr, Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, and Sam Waterston.

Check out the trailer below, and smile from ear to ear when you recognize the beauty of Sorkin’s lightning-paced dialogue.

“The Newsroom” premieres Sunday, June 24th, on HBO.

Miss Mississippi USA crowned its first African American winner in the organization’s 67-year history.

They work hard on their education, spend countless hours doing public service work, and many of them have already formed their own charity initiatives before they’ve even hit 22 years old.

But this one was particularly special because Asya Branch was crowned Miss Mississippi – a beautiful, bright young woman. She will go on to compete in the Miss USA in Nevada later next year.

In 2005, a younger, idealistic me spent the day at the amazing Macy’s Santaland, under the name “Peppermint Stick.” It was a great time, and the kids were both funny and adorable. (The ones I didn’t scare.) Some of them are applying for college now.
