Caught My Eye…

It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people; to focus your energies on answers – not excuses. – William Arthur Ward

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 today include Tester wants answers, new fees and taxes, the Senate health care bill, 60 pounds of stuff, and one more thing!
