Hello Caught My Eye (CME) fans – congrats for making it to another wonderful Friday. You’ve worked hard this week and you deserve a few minutes just for yourself to read Caught My Eye.
You have my permission!
If this is your first time reading CME, welcome to the almost “award winning” weekly column. In CME, I take a look (sometimes with sarcasm) at stories that I did not have time to write about during this week.
This week I take a look at bin Laden, millionaires, a goat, bras and panties, my political inbox, political practices, a kangaroo and MORE. Here we go…. Continue reading →
