The Sunday Message

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me. – Jim Valvano

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there!

Your mission today…

Take a minute today to say thanks to your dad. Call him, send him an e-mail, or go visit him if he lives close. If he’s passed on like mine, take a minute to tell your wife and/or your kids some stories about your dad.

In the end, all we have are the memories.

Topics that I am providing commentary on today include the toxic political culture, Gianforte heads to Washington, drip, drip, drip, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, the Sound of Freedom, Arkansas and elevators, and much more!
