Fact-Cookies, Eye Opening, Truly

Soft Baked Cookie:

Numbers, sports, and TV at Sports Media Watch.

Gluten Free Cookie:

Law enforcement agents can’t all be as dashing and dazzling as Law & Order personnel.  If your legal spokesperson is not present with you at the time, be as silent as a doormouse.  Or so James Duane argues.  Would anyone like to elaborate on or contextualize his points?  Click here to read more about the man.

Sugar Free Cookie:

UGA’s women’s basketball team showed Auburn’s what’s up with the lighting fixtures.  67-58.

Sin Free Cookie:

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff is bonafide, and certainly not a man of constant sorrow.

Sell By Date Cookie:

School recess normalizing and healthy for kids’ unruly behavior.  Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine would bet their Wiis on it…surely.  I never liked recess.  I enjoyed being outside (when the weather was nice) and to goof off, but I frequently preferred to sit on a log or the curb rather than run around like my pants were on fire (because people nonsensically, automatically run around feeding the flames).  I imagine that aside from the cathartic nature of physical movement (a release from stressors), recess enables kids to figure out social hierarchies, interpersonal protocol, and social etiquette.  So, mouthing off next to the monkey bars could be better than throwing a punch before math class begins.  Teachers would just have to be vigilant and make sure that mouthing off–sans pirate talk–next to the monkey bars doesn’t escalate into projectile fists or pebbles.
