What if they are not stars, but holes poked into the top of the container so we can breathe? – Unknown
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- Montana AG to be Investigated
- Kelly & Burow
- Junior’s Cheap Shot
- Stapleton Tweets an Announcement is Coming
- The Western Word Poll
MONTANA AG TO BE INVESTIGATED:
The Daily Montanan reported that Republican legislative leadership on Monday approved a special counsel investigation proposed by state Democratic leaders into reports that Republican Attorney General Austin Knudsen used state resources, including law enforcement, to harass and intimidate physicians and staff at St. Peter’s Hospital in Helena.
I think this is a good thing. I hope they conduct a thorough investigation. I am surprised the Republican leadership agreed to this.

KELLY & BUROW:
When I was involved in politics, I used to double and triple-check letters that I prepared for my boss. I would have another person read the letters, too. I did not like errors.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana and Forward Montana sent some Great Falls residents a mailer about the Municipal Election. They did not spell Mayoral Candidate Fred Burow’s name correctly. They spelled it “Burrows.” If they were trying to be funny, they should have spelled it “Burros.”
It was kind of amusing during this Municipal Election season to see some of the right-leaning folks go nuts. The mailer was not really about abortions; it was about “Does the candidate support public health measures and following CDC guidelines & recommendations as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic?
The mailer says Bob Kelly -Yes, Fred “Burrows” -No.
Some on the right asked why these “out of town” Democratic organizations are promoting candidates in the Great Falls municipal election?
How about freedom of speech…
It took me about a minute to find the answer. The answer can be found on their website:
It can be difficult to find information about city elections. That’s why Forward Montana and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Montana came together to provide information to voters like you who care about ensuring our community is a place where we all can thrive.

JUNIOR’S CHEAP SHOT:
I used to be surprised when I would read how low the Trump family would go to get back at people. I don’t think there’s a bottom. They are a nasty hateful family. History will not be kind to them.
Here is the latest from The Hill:
Donald Trump Jr. is selling T-shirts on his website that mock the fatal shooting on Alec Baldwin’s movie set. The T-shirts promoted on his website include the tagline “Guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin kills people.”
Yes, I am aware that Alec Baldwin was no supporter of Trump, but sometimes keeping your mouth shut when your enemy is suffering is the right and higher road to take, not to mention the adult thing to do.
STAPLETON TWEETS AN ANNOUNCEMENT IS COMING:
On his Twitter feed, former Secretary of State Corey Stapleton tweeted, “Be on the lookout for an announcement this week!”
Let the speculation begin…
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
The 2021 World Series begins Tuesday night with the Atlanta Braves taking on the Houston Astros. All games will be televised on FOX. More information about the series can be found HERE.
This week’s poll question asks, “Which team will win the 2021 World Series?”
The results will be posted later this week.
