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 healthcare, Memorial Day, unemployment, dirty money, veterans in Congress, President’s job approval, Greg Gianforte, House of Cards, Top Gun, and much more!
Equality is the soul of liberty; there is, in fact, no liberty without it. – Frances Wright
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 Pence visit, Bullock & cellphones, Special Election fliers, Gallup poll, Trump Derangement Syndrome, Montana Ag Summit, and much more!
Politics is the art of choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable. – John Kenneth Galbraith

Here are some of my thoughts about the race between Rob Quist and Greg Gianforte.
