Topics that I am providing commentary on today include Trump’s recordings, the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, Space Corps, Kansas City Chiefs, and One More Thing!

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there!

Your mission today…

Take a minute today to say thanks to your dad. Call him, send him an e-mail, or go visit him if he lives close. If he’s passed on like mine, take a minute to tell your wife and/or your kids some stories about your dad.

In the end, all we have are the memories.
