WATCH: Alabama State attempts dunk on Kenny Wooten, does not go well

Little went in the right direction for Alabama State on Friday night against the Oregon basketball team. With a little under 12 minutes left in the second half, the Ducks led the Hornets 73-39, and there would be no signs of let up. You might think this would be about the point in the game that Oregon might let a few charitable dunks or easy layups slide. No sense in getting...

PARENTING WITH DR. RAMEY: Why kids don’t reveal sexual abuse

At my Catholic high school in Massachusetts, it was well known that a few of the clergy were molesting various boys.
