Listening To This Anti-Gambling Crusader Is The REAL Gamble

Kathy Gilroy from Villa Park, Illinois thinks any type of gambling is wrong. However, she loves doing it herself. While she preaches to many that it's a sin to gamble she is the first one to enter a raffle. She has won over $25,000 in cash and prizes. Her pastor says it's God showing his grace for her work volunteering against gambling.

The Annual List of Words That Were So Yesterday

Lake Superior State University in northern Michigan puts out a list at the beginning of each year of words and phrases they wish people would stop using.

1.  "Unpack."  It means you want to analyze a complex topic or statement.  Politicians and pundits use it a lot.

2.  "Tons."  They say it's overused, and they wish people would just say "lots."

3.  "Nothingburger."  They basically think it's just a stupid, unnecessary word.

4.  "Fake News."  They don't like that people use it for any story they disagree with now.

5.  "Gig economy."  Which describes the trend of people working odd jobs instead of having a normal 9-to-5.
