An Amendment to the Amendment?

You may recall that the subject of last week’s column in this space was the 25th Amendment – the temporary removal from office of a President of the United States who may not be able to fulfill the duties of the office due to some type of incapacitation (mental or physical). As you may remember, [...]

The Line Forms Here.

In the immortal words of Alice (in Wonderland), 2020 just keeps getting “curiouser and curiouser.” As if this edition of the quadrennial presidential sweepstakes wasn’t strange enough already, the Wuhan Wahoo has rather pointedly made its presence known in the Oval Office. President Trump, the First Lady, and several frontline White House staffers all tested [...]

Are you a good sport?

If you’re looking for a hot stock tip right about now, I might suggest any retail company that does a brisk business in televisions. Especially if they sell TVs that allow you to watch a few channels simultaneously. Why? Well, if you’re a sports fan, you know the Wuhan Wallop has forced leagues and events [...]

Supremely Stimulating

With not much new going on in the country right now, thank goodness a Supreme Court nomination has come along. Republicans and Democrats needed something new to carp at each other about. Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s death has left a void in more ways than one way. In addition to the obvious vacant seat, her strong [...]

Interchangeable Troubles?

The pubic images that the heads of the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee put forth in the media are those of bitter enemies and antagonists. Their jobs, of course, consist of furthering the careers of politicians aligned with their respective parties. So, they have to root, root, root for the home team. [...]

And they’re off!

Okay. The Rs and Ds have spent part of the last few weeks at their respective conventions telling us all how great their respective candidates are. And Labor Day, the traditional kick-off time for campaigns, has come and gone. So, now the real presidential sweepstakes fun starts. Perhaps you’ve already noticed an uptick in TV [...]

Take a Break. Enjoy the Day.

Anyone who celebrates a birthday between September 1st and September 7th is acutely aware that every six years, their special day is also a national holiday. Labor Day is always scheduled for the first Monday in September. So, the date it falls on changes annually. We who claim the 7th are proud to share our [...]

The Unblemished Record

In a normal year, for which, obviously, 2020 does not qualify, the latter part of summer would be devoted to settling into a new school year, going to a baseball game as the pennant race heats up, getting in one last weekend on the water, and of course, lining up tailgate parties for the upcoming [...]

Move It, Move It, Move It.

Every presidential election year, there are usually firm commitments from at least several people in the public eye stating that, “If NAME gets elected, I’m moving to Canada.” Four years ago, the NAME mentioned was Donald Trump. There was quite a list of folks from the world of entertainment who swore they would up and [...]

Ready To Party?

By the time this column goes to press, the Democratic National Convention should be well underway, with the Rs following later on this month. In both cases, the usually boisterous quadrennial gatherings will probably be rather subdued affairs. Covid-19 has rendered the thought of thousands of folks gathering in a large venue to nominate their [...]
