  • Someone asked me recently what problem I had with having Hillary Clinton for president? I told them in foreign policy, in too many ways, she reminds me of old Cold Warrior Margaret Thatcher, as typified by her vote in the Senate to go to war with Iraq. I believe she voted as such, because she suffer...

  • Having read and listened to all the brouhaha concerning marijuana (pot, cannabis, reefer) I am compelled to put in my two cents. First off, I don’t have a dog in this fight.

  • February, the shortest month of the year, follows January, and has 95 holidays, some bizarre and others we hold dear.
