My God, the week is halfway over. Hallelujah! And guess what, Thanksgiving is next week. If you're like me, you took all of next week off. If you're not, you at least have one, if not two days off next week. That means the next couple of days are going to go by even more slowly. If only a bunch of the best writers on the web had content for you to read. Oh wait, they do! Check out these links to help your time pass by just like that.

NON-WRESTLING #1: Roy Halladay passed away last week under tragic circumstances. Few outside his teammates and family got to know him as well as Zoo With Roy did, and he wrote a touching tribute. [Zoo With Roy]

NON-WRESTLING #2: Roy Moore sexually abused minors. John F. Kennedy had extra-marital affairs with women young enough to be his daughter. Both are wrong, and I examine why men of all political persuasions need to check the outward expressions of their libidos. [Medium]
