Bromance makes sense

Presidential tradition: boardrooms to bedrooms

Well, ladies and gentlemen, the time has finally come. In less than a week, Bush is out of office.

Band success story starts at the top and continues

Braxton Adamson and his band, 3 Story Fall, are doing things backward. Adamson's played at Gator Growl in front of 40,000 people. The band has played in front of enormous crowds, opening for legendary acts such as Kansas and the Doobie Brothers, and it has sponsorships that provide members with free instruments, clothing and equipment. These are all privileges usually only enjoyed by major acts, but this band doesn't even have a record deal.

Wanted: girlfriend for loney bachelor
