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 and humor.
This week’s topics include government spending, Heroes Act, unemployment claims, coronavirus deaths, Ben Sasse, surveillance, 2020 Census, Trump’s approval rating, drunk driving sentence, and much more!
Montana, Montana, Glory of the West Of all the states from coast to coast, You’re easily the best Montana, Montana, Where skies are always blue…
-Montana State Song
-Lyrics by Charles Cohan, Melody by Joseph E. Howard
We are about to enjoy another one of those great summers in Montana, with thousands upon thousands of people visiting the state to see our mountains, visit our parks, and fish and float in our rivers.

Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy. Make it. Protect it. Pass it on. – Thurgood Marshall
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 Judge Ingrid Gustafson, Net Neutrality, Mueller, The Tax Bill, and One More Thing!
