When people think about the history of African-Americans in golf, they are usually familiar with just a few names. Charlie Sifford, Lee Elder, Calvin Peete, Althea Gibson, and of course, Tiger Woods. Not many have heard the name Bill Wright. That's too bad because his is a name that should b…

People are often surprised when they find out that I prefer laptops over desktop (or tower) computers. For the average computer user, laptops have everything a person needs to get up and running right out of the box. It’s usually not necessary to have to shop around for parts – the typical l…
