To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege that was ever accorded to the human race. – Calvin Coolidge

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 about today include DACA, Trump, & Democrats, the Great Falls Police Department, Steve Daines, Danica Patrick, Bluetiful, Constitution Week, plus don’t miss this week’s One More Thing!

Caught My Eye…

To many of my readers, your children will be starting back to school this week – congratulations on making it through another summer!  But to some, there’s one big holiday left before classes start again, so hang in there you’ve almost got it made.  I personally prefer school starting after Labor Day and ending before Memorial Day.

To celebrate the end to another fabulous summer, this is a special “Caught My Eye!” You really need to read it and catch that “end of summer” feeling!  To the new folks visiting for the first time, Caught My Eye is my weekly look at the stories I did not have time to write about during the week – offered up with some commentary and sometimes a bit of sarcasm!

This week we take a look at a special road trip, picketing, Michael Vick, Wi-Fi names, earthquake jokes, Danica, Cheney, school starting, high school football and more. Oh yes, I share some of the e-mails from “My Political Inbox,” too!

So grab a cup of something with caffeine in it, plus a donut or bagel (it’s Friday) and read on… Continue reading
