While many gravitate toward Martin Luther King, Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech in order to highlight his hopes, his "Letter From a Birmingham Jail" feels more applicable to the way things are right now, especially in light of the incoming U.S. Presidential administration.Read More

So apparently, the future of Girl Meets World is up in the air at the moment. Sigh. Perhaps as a sign of a potential end, the show has decided to stage a giant reunion with many of the cast members of Boy Meets World (Minkus! Feeny! Both Morgans!).Read More
Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard might only be 14, but she's done and said more to further an awesome and positive message for young fans than many others in a position similar to hers.Read More

I'm more excited about this than I should be.
Get ready to have Disney poke you right in the nostalgia button with this first look at footage from Girl Meets World, the decades-later spinoff to the classic family sitcom Boy Meets World. Cory and Topanga are back, and their daughter is apparently trying to escape.Read More
