Michael Brice-Saddler, The Washington Post Published 7:57 pm PST, Monday, December 3, 2018 A New Hampshire school district is investigating after two 11th-grade students sang a racist musical number for their history class containing the lyrics "let's kill all the blacks."

Advertisements for auto and homeowners insurance have become ubiquitous, and their humor often ranges from irritating to clever. You can probably hear one in your head right now. That humor is apparently intended to be the spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down; valuable messages about insurance are sometimes conveyed subtly but effectively. As an insurance coverage lawyer, also known as a geek, I see how some of that information also can be useful in the business insurance context. 1.
