‘Ferguson’ Is 2014’s Name of the Year

Why is it Ferguson is what the media is shoveling at us to remember so what happened to Michael Brown. It is an easy name to remember a name and a young person who is more worthy of Name of the Year. The media knows all the old sayings and their favorite here is “Oh how quickly they forget”
