The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them. – Benjamin Jowett
I’m kind of happy the Montana Legislature is getting together to try to address the $227 million budget shortage. It will probably give me something to write about. It will be fun to watch the jockeying and the games being played as the members of the Montana Legislature get to feel important again for a few days.
I’ve said often that the Montana Legislature being in session is like the circus coming to Helena. The legislators head to Helena with the best intentions, but for some reason they end up drinking out of the “stupid fountain” that must be somewhere down a dark hall in the capitol. Then, many of these people end up making asses of themselves and embarrass Montana.
I don’t think most Montanans have that much respect for many members of the state legislature.
Everyone should have their mind blown once a day. – Neil deGrasse Tyson
Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm.
This week’s topics include the special session, Montana beef, unemployment, urban chickens, mayor of Great Falls, Sutherland Springs, Montana, economic development levy, Troy Downing, Five on Black, college football, and much more!
A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus. – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!
If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.
Topics that I am providing commentary on today include the Montana Legislature, Rob Quist and the nudist resort, Greg Gianforte and the lawsuit, crash test dummies, and much more!
