‘Birdie’ Surrogate Goes Viral At Bernie Sanders’ Rally

The political season this year in the States has been one big super non-ending dose of ‘Reality TV.’ Nobody could have scripted what Americans and the world at large has laid witness to over the course of the last six months — and there doesn't seem to be any end in sight. From Trump’s ‘the Emperor’s wearing no clothes' raucous sideshow act to establishment stalwarts like a a Bush family member being kicked to curb, viewers and voters would have to attest to the unique entertainment value in this political field.

Dindim The Penguin Knows There’s No Place Like Home

However, the demography of motherhood has shown a shift over the centuries, as our average life spans have lengthened.
