Playing Nice . . . for Now

Big global news this week as Russian President Vlad “The Mad” Putin welcomed his Chinese counterpart, President (and perhaps ruler for life) Xi Jinping to Moscow. The visit comes at a time when the Russian potentate is desperately looking for someone to tell him he’s doing the right thing in Ukraine and to provide economic [...]

Playing the Bracket Game

Once again, it’s that special time of year when the polished professionals in the NCAA marketing department manage to make a few hundred million Americans passionate about college basketball. Perhaps so many of us herald the coming of March Madness because we know that when the tournament is over, Spring will have officially arrived on [...]

Got Somebody in Mind?

President Joe Biden unveiled a few tax plans this week while visiting places that were swing states in the last presidential election. What he didn’t divulge were his own plans on seeking another term in the White House. As of yet, no other mainstream Democrat has stepped up to a phalanx of microphones to announce [...]

Let’s Play Jeopardy?

Kind of a potpourri of news this week. (Potpourri, you probably know, is a long-time and oft-used category on the Jeopardy game show. I believe it’s been around since the days of Art Fleming, well before Alex Trebek told players to grab their signaling devices.) Anyway, it’s a great catch-all word that I’m sure the [...]

Marching to Moldova?

It’s no secret that the Ukranian war planned by Vlad “The Mad” Putin to last two days is now about a year old with no end in sight. You may recall that when the Russian Tsar sent a couple hundred thousand soldiers marching toward Kyiv last year, he figured he could quickly depose their government [...]

Up, Up and Away . . .

Have you ever been up in a hot air balloon? I got to go aloft in one in South Dakota many moons ago. It’s very peaceful cruising above the landscape without any sound except for the occasional blast of hot air. You do truly feel as if you’re a bird in flight. Of course, my [...]

Some Things Never Change

In 1790, President George Washington delivered the first State of the Union Address to Congress in person. One of his opening lines was this: “I embrace with great satisfaction the opportunity, which now presents itself, of congratulating you on the present favourable prospects of our public affairs.” Modernize the language a little bit and I’m [...]

Flying the Friendly Skies of Yore

A good friend of mine picked Christmas Day to fly from St. Louis to Los Angeles to surprise her 97-year-old dad. You may recall that Southwest Airlines had major problems that day, and, of course, that was the carrier she was on. Her scheduled 6:30 AM flight never happened. She eventually got routed through Chicago [...]

Your Money in Action?

Get your checkbook out. I saw a report earlier this month that indicated every living person in the U.S. would have to simultaneously pay $93,870 right now to wipe out the debt of the federal government. But that’s only if everyone acts today. Tomorrow, you pay more. And so do your children. And grandchildren. And [...]
