Insane as ever, ‘Deadpool 2’ doesn’t disappoint

At a recent screening of “Deadpool 2,” the audience didn’t get up when the end credits came up, patiently sitting through the scrolling names of visual effects supervisors and lighting specialists. Real “Deadpool” fans know to stick around until the ushers toss them out.

Woodstock's Mommy Knows Best product makes Kardashian baby registry

WOODSTOCK – New moms are met with many challenges. Your whole life changes. Your schedule is no longer your own and you feel almost as if you’ve taken up residence in a new body. Mommy Knows Best offers products that help new moms survive this often turbulent time.

(In truth, I was expecting the accompanying nutritional analysis to be worse than it is.)
