The value of car and house insurance together is 100 dollars per month and expenses like gasoline and food are not included. This is more than unrealistic. It’s unseemly.

That elephant is the writer’s overuse of quotations used in…

    I chose as my columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. from the Miami Herald. The reason I chose Leonard Pitts Jr. is because he seems like such a passionate writer.

I think he’s the kinda columnist that will explain his opinion on the topic, but will also give you the other side and both with facts included. Also Leonard writes what he is really passionate…
