You got a lotta nerve To say you are my friend When I was down You just stood there grinning
– “Positively 4th Street” by Bob Dylan
Welcome to the big show to end the week – the last “Caught My Eye” (CME) of January! Did I ever tell you how much I hate January?
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.
Today’s topics that caught my eye this week include:
Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future. – John F. Kennedy
Welcome to Wednesday! Today is one of those days in which there are several stories out there that I want to comment about – so it’s another “Odds & Ends” day!
Some people strengthen the society just by being the kind of people they are. – John W. Gardner
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 just a little bit of sarcasm.
This week’s topics include World Series viewers, the Royals parade, unemployment, the garbage man, Griz/Cats/Saints & playoffs, area code, Packers & Broncos, election results, Jeb Bush, the undefeated, and much more!
