Caught My Eye…

Remember you are just an extra in everyone else’s play. – Franklin D. Roosevelt

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 this week include Tschida vs. Motl, Bozeman Daily Chronicle & pay raises, Veterans Affairs & Whistleblowers & Tester, Montana’s suicide prevention program, Brawl of the Wild, and much more!

Montana Politics 2016: Three Things

Enjoy doing nothing, and you can enjoy doing anything. Enjoy having nothing, and you can enjoy whatever you have. – Ralph Marston

Welcome to Wednesday – also known as “Hump Day” or “Wine Wednesday” or whatever works to help you make it to the weekend! Remember to stay calm – the downward slide into the weekend starts today!

Today is another one of those days in which there are several political stories out there that I want to comment about, but I have narrowed my commentary to “Three Things.”

Today’s “Three Things” are:

  • Montana Campaign Contributions
  • Gianforte’s Patch
  • Buildings & Planes & Goofballs

Caught My Eye…

Welcome to Friday the 13th and another (almost) award-winning edition of “Caught My Eye.”

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted 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. Sometimes I throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – or maybe both.

Today I write about the Commissioner of Political Practices, Ground Troops & Zinke, letters from Bullock, Daines, and Zinke, Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald, Ashton Carter & the Department of Defense, plus we have a winner who is Making Montana Proud!
