Caught My Eye…

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence, and then success is sure. – Mark Twain

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!

A special shout-out goes to the “paid professional agitators/protesters” who are reading CME today!

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 Western Word town hall poll, mail-in ballots & pot, Planned Parenthood, WH Press Briefing & KECI, Trump & Nukes, one more thing, and much more!
