We have an older MacBook Pro and Kelli has been using Word for a paper. She has been saving it, closing it, and opening it. When she went to upload the document after saving it/closing Word, the document isn’t there and the latest modified date for anything is 6/16. Any ideas?

Bernie's tweet the other day shows he probably thinks that too.
Or maybe he’s just running an overtly anti-establishment campaign and is thus trying to use the hatred he gets from the establishment to his favor.

You've got guys in MLB getting paid millions of dollars, and if a batter shows them up, you better believe it's kicking off a season and sometimes longer series of retribution* in the form of bean balls.

Those guys are so weak, too, I guess.
