Nine-year-old Zakariyus Ford and his father, Derek Ford, are using Derek’s company Haha Cards to create uplifting, touching, and often hilarious card designs themed around the pandemic and the services of front line workers like medical professionals and grocery store employees.

At the Round Table



It’s no secret to any Vegas Golden Knights fans by now that — after a season of more

ups, downs, starts, and stops than anyone could have anticipated — our Knights were knocked out of the Western Conference playoffs after an overtime loss to the Dallas Stars in Game 5. We’ve had our time to mourn the defeat, which means now it’s time to say thank you. Thank you to the VGK for giving us another season to continue cheering for even when the world was turned upside down. Thank you for being willing to spend 51 days in a quarantine bubble in Edmonton, Canada,
