Tony Kerns

Ok... the easy stuff first.  I was born in Tucson, went to high school here in Wichita Falls (OLD HIGH CLASS OF '99 REPRESENT!), and graduated college in Albuquerque.  I'm happily married to my High School sweetheart Lindsey and we have a beautiful baby girl Madeline (named after one of the funniest women to ever live, Madeline Kahn.)  I'm a huge geek, and proud of it.  At any given time by belt buckle is either Ghostbusters, Superman or Batman, I have many shirts to match those belt buckles, and have more action figures on display in my house than my 8-year-old nephew has in his toy chest. Now for the more introspective stuff...  My wife says that its quite obvious that I was born to entertain people.  In a group of people, if I'm not cracking jokes, people come up and say, "Are you feeling ok?"  Getting people to laugh at something I said or did, and I meant to make them laugh, is the best feeling in the world to me.  Of course I've learned the hard way where and when it is not a good idea to try to make people laugh... like funeral homes or a police line up.

Arizona Bill Requires Constitutional Loyalty Oath to Graduate

As important as public education is to our society, it’s understandable that any changes to it will be met with high scrutiny, and likely high controversy.  Some schools were met with challenges over something as simple as dropping cursive writing from the curriculum, while others felt the backlash for using textbooks that indicated that humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time

Freedom Of and Freedom From Religion [OPINION]

Recently, I came across a religious statement that left me a little confused.  My wife and I encountered an elderly couple in the elevator on our way to the Obstetrician’s office, both of whom were wearing jeweled crucifixes bigger than you’d see a Rap singer wear, and matching shirts saying “Its Freedom of Religion, not Freedom from Religion
