Thursday Numbers

Can you feel it? It’s here! Welcome to another pretty exciting edition of “Thursday Numbers!”

“Thursday Numbers” is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary (sometimes spiked with sarcasm) just to make you smile, shake your head, or make you send me nasty e-mails or Tweets.

This week I write about a scratch ticket, Deputy Joe Dunn, missing money, journalists, The Simpsons, campaign donations, John Lewis, Jon Tester, Ryan Zinke, Steve Daines, Amanda Curtis, U.S. Navy, unemployment, Hawaii, Ice Bucket Challenge, NFL, breast implants and much more!

Your free dose of knowledge awaits…

The Sunday Message

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.Psalm 34:18 (NIV)

Please join me in praying for his family, friends, and his fellow deputies during this very difficult time.
