Quote for the Day…
Being honest may not get you a lot of friends, but it’ll always get you the right ones. – John Lennon
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- The Western Word Poll
- Uvalde Texas
- Great Falls Democrat Activist
- Hit and Run
- Reading Assignments
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
The NBA Finals are set – It’s the Boston Celtics versus the Golden State Warriors. This week’s poll question asks, “Who will win the 2021-22 NBA Championship?”
The results will be posted later this week.
As more information is released, it is becoming clearer that Uvalde School District Police Chief Pedro Arredondo failed to lead.
Reports say that federal authorities took over the situation and terminated the threat. As a former security forces member and law enforcement member in the USAF, we are trained to run to the danger and terminate it.
I wonder if the same situation happened in Cascade County Montana if Sheriff Jesse Slaughter would allow federal authorities to take control of the scene? He thinks he is the supreme law of the county.
I hope everyone reads the following article from the Associated Press that shows the Texas elementary school shooting, minute by minute.

GREAT FALLS DEMOCRAT ACTIVIST:
The conservative E-City Beat blog did another drive-by hit piece on a democrat (Jasmine Taylor) in Cascade County for her views about the police.
I posted the same meme on The Western Word Facebook page.
In keeping with their cowardly posts, they said the “ECB Staff” posted the article instead of who authored the article.
Here at The Western Word, my name appears on all the posts.
I am not a chickenshit.
HIT AND RUN:
Sometime between Friday and Monday morning, my daughter’s vehicle was hit while parked outside my residence. We called the Great Falls Falls Police Department and they responded quickly and took all the information and photos.
Later in the day, a vehicle appeared at the residence across the street. The vehicle had damage to its rear bumper area. I decided to take photos and then asked the driver if he hit my daughter’s vehicle. He decided to get ugly and call me an “old man” and even said he would “kill me” if I kept messing with him. I took plenty of photos but failed to get the part about killing me on video.
So, if I die in the next few days, remember this post!
