Safety in Numbers

Back in the era of the Rat Pack, Las Vegas was always rumored to be the safest city in America. Guys with names like Tony “the Tuna,” Mike “the Muscle,” Carmine “the Claw,” and others who helped run The Flamingo, The Sands, The Desert Inn, and most of the other casinos on (and off) The [...]

A Tall Tale?

Here’s the scene: Hollywood, California. An aspiring screenwriter has been granted an audience with a major Movie Mogul (MM), the kind of guy that can make or break a career with a nod of his head. The writer has been granted 15 minutes to pitch his story. Pleasantries have been exchanged, and it’s time to [...]

Choosing Sides . . . in a Fun Way

Are you still debating the debate from last week with friends and foe alike? Yet another polarizing moment in today’s America gave everyone a chance to take sides, put on blinders, and/or advocate vociferously in favor of one presidential candidate over another. Four years after We the People first got to choose between Donald Trump [...]

A Little Prescient Pondering?

When you read this, the first Great Debate of the 2024 presidential election will be history. But newspaper deadlines being what they are, as I write this the anticipation is still building. I’m not sure the event will go on record as the equal of the Lincoln/Douglas oratorical discussions of 1860, but this one could [...]

Here’s a Hint . . .

As a public service, and mainly to try to relieve collective political angst that might have built up over the last couple of weeks (including my own), I thought I’d randomly turn to a lighter topic and provide some helpful household tricks that could save time and money . . . something politicians know very [...]

Here’s an Idea.

At this stage of the ballgame in a normal presidential election year, most political operatives would be enjoying a couple of weeks playing in the sand and surf before the real action starts later in the summer. In an understatement of the decade, this is hardly your normal presidential election year. Trials of one candidate [...]

I Beg Your Pardon

While I didn’t hear continuous references to New York court proceedings last week as the “Trial of the Century,” I would think that the prosecution and conviction of Donald Trump would certainly qualify. Even moreso than O.J. Simpson’s murder tribunal from last century. There was plenty of salacious testimony in both, to be sure. But [...]

Bucks for Ballplayers

Don’t look now, but the Almighty Dollar is once more in all probability about to mess up college football, basketball, baseball, and every other NCAA sport you can think of. (Excuse me, for you English majors out there, I meant to say, “every other NCAA sport of which you can think.”) Apparently, NIL (Name, Image, [...]

And in this Corner . . .

Way back in the stone age, when middle school was known as junior high, it was not uncommon for two adolescent young lads to disagree on a very important matter, usually having to do with, of course, a female student who appealed to both of them. Loudly proclaimed insults in the hallways or lunchroom often [...]

Is This the New Summertime Norm?

This month is usually quite pleasant. Summer is just around the bend. The warmer May weather perks up spirits and heralds the coming of the lazy, hazy, crazy days of this time of year, probably because many of us still associate them with our long-ago youth. After the usual long, dark winter that often features [...]
