The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails. – William Arthur Ward
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.
This week’s topics include defense spending, unemployment, Steve Daines, GOP healthcare bill, Rob Quist & Greg Gianforte poll results, Tim Fox & Jon Tester, Great Falls casinos, Trump tweets, Jon Huntsman, Illegal crossings, Tony Romo, Congressional job approval, drunk driving, electric vehicle charging stations, Tim Tebow, and much more!
It looks like warmer weather is here (for a few days at least) and that means my faithful readers will be out and about enjoying it instead of reading my columns! Have no fear – The Western Word (TWW) has a mobile version for you to access while you are on the go.
If you are a new visitor to TWW, “Monday Morning Politics” is where I put together several of the political stories from the past weekend all in one place for your reading pleasure. I also offer some personal commentary…
Today I write about polygamy, a day in the life part two, Veterans, Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act, the U.S. Justice Department, Orrin Hatch, Chuck Colson, Ted Nugent, Jon Huntsman, DUIs, and much more.
Thanks for stopping by The Western Word for the first “Caught My Eye” of 2012. If this is your first time visiting, Caught My Eye is my weekly column where I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I sometimes offer my personal commentary, too.
This week I cover a lot! I write about recess appointments, unemployment, campaign money, travels, I peek inside my political inbox, and I write about twins. Enjoy! Continue reading →
