Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down. – Wilson Mizner
Welcome to Wednesday! When there are several stories out there that I want to comment about, I combine them into an “Odds & Ends” or “potpourri” column. Today is one of those days!
The “Odds & Ends” today include these topics:
- Great Falls Election Results
- Daines Endorses Rubio
- Anonymous & KKK
- The Parade
- College Football Playoffs
GF Election Results:
It looks like Great Falls will be getting a new mayor! In the city commissioner’s race, one candidate was winning by just seven votes. Check out the Great Falls Tribune for the story HERE.
In the past, the Great Falls City Commission meetings were like listening to a bunch of cranky old guys at a coffee shop. Let’s hope that changes in 2016.
Daines Endorses Rubio:
If you follow me on Twitter, then you were one of the first to see that Montana’s junior senator, Republican Steve Daines, endorsed presidential candidate U.S. Senator Marco Rubio for President.
I was surprised that Daines did not endorse Ben Carson. They seem to have similar views.
If Rubio is elected President, which I don’t believe he will be, but if he is I hope he shows up for work more often than he has as a Senator…
If you did not have enough to worry about, there’s this.
Patti Kanduch of Philipsburg, Montana, says our nation is ignoring the dangers of chemtrails. You can read her guest opinion in the Missoulian newspaper HERE.
In other news, the X-Files return for six episodes in January.
The truth is out there…
Anonymous & KKK:
According to a story in USA Today, a group claiming ties to the activist group Anonymous has identified several politicians as members of the Ku Klux Klan. Of course, those who are identified as members deny it. Read the story HERE.
This will be fun…
An estimated crowd of 800,000 came out to cheer for Kansas City Royals at their parade on Tuesday. One of my favorite columnists is Sam Mellinger. He writes for the Kansas City Star and you can read his story about it HERE.
Outfielder Jonny Gomes wasn’t on the Royals’ postseason roster, but he gave a great speech at the celebration:
Congrats to Kansas City for putting on a great parade. I wish I had been there.
College Football Playoffs:
Last night the first poll was released to see which teams make the top four and the playoffs!
They first four are:
3. Ohio State
LSU and Alabama play each other this Saturday. Get the popcorn ready!
There are about 10 undefeated teams. That probably means several teams are going to get their feelings hurt in December.
