As I said the other day, Psy's "Gangnam Style" has pretty much been covered, parodied and spoofed to death. Or so I thought. Turns out that there are a lot of videos out there that I haven't seen.

Growing up in a small town when you're a little bit different can be hard. I know this first hand. And kids these days, it seems, are more malicious than ever. So, it warmed my heart to read the story of Whitney Kropp, a sophomore from Ogemaw Heights High School in West Branch, Michigan.
