Merida from Disney's Brave officially became Disney's 11th princess on May 11 and someone felt that she needed a makeover for her coronation.
I know I should probably write about the current multiple scandals in Washington. And with the investigations into the Benghazi terrorist attacks, the revelation of the Department of Justice pulling the Associated Press' phone records, and the outrageous political vendetta being revealed at the IRS, there would certainly be no shortage of material.
I didn't get a lot of sleep Thursday night and not because I wasn't feeling well or had a lot of noise to keep me awake.
