Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance. – W. Clement Stone
Welcome to Friday and the big show I call “Caught My Eye” (CME). If you are a first-time visitor, the highly popular CME has been posted here every Friday morning since October 2010! This column is where I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Sometimes I throw in a touch of snarkiness to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.
Today I write about Ashley Madison & Montana, helicopters & fires, Zinke, Gianforte, & Boehner, a new campaign complaint, MTN’s new political reporter, The Western Word lives on, and Donald, Roger, & Megyn make the big show!
It’s sad when someone you know becomes someone you knew. – Henry Rollins
Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re new around here, “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 sprinkled with sarcasm and sometimes I am actually serious.
This week’s topics include the debt limit, unemployment, James Holmes, Statements of Candidacy for 2016 presidential candidates, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Guinness World Records book, best burritos in America, myths about wine, WDBJ-TV, and much more.
I think the folks who work at Benefis Hospital in Great Falls do a pretty good job. A year or so ago I got to see up close how they work, and I think they did a fine job.
Yesterday the Great Falls Tribune published a story about Benefis Hospital requiring employees to wear “colors” specific to their department. Benefis hopes this will help prevent confusion from patients.
I guess some patients wondered if an employee was coming into their room to take their blood or clean their toilet. By the way, I am pretty sure the new colors don’t have anything to do with gangs.
When I first saw the illustration in the E-Newspaper version of the Tribune showing the different colored scrubs that are required to be worn, I thought they were showing the silks that jockeys would be wearing for a horse race. Giddy-up…
What was amusing to me and others who read the story is how many shades of blue scrubs the employees will be wearing at Benefis.
