Caught My Eye…

And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another’s audience
Outside the gilded cage
– Limelight (Rush)

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 Jon Tester/Steve Daines taking/getting credit, Rosendale & life, migrant children – are you kidding me, the IG & Comey, The Fourth Estate, and One More Thing!
