Thursday Numbers

Thanks for stopping by The Western Word. Your free dose of knowledge is ready!

“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 net worth in Congress, unemployment, absentee ballots, Monica Lewinsky, Breaking Bad action figures, Dr. Ben Carson, Pennsylvania & wine, World Series tickets, Joe Buck, death penalty, the fallen video, Daines’ wealth, celebrity sports fans, best horror movies, ground beef, and much more!

Campaign 2014: Political Potpourri

Today’s column is not about baseball – it deals with Legislative Referendum 126 here in Montana.  I also write about the Lewis/Zinke U.S. House debate on Saturday night, and I close out today’s piece by writing about the “team” of three wise men who penned a column in the Great Falls Tribune about “no teams.”
