I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong. – Bertrand Russell

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 this week include Zinke and Trump, Gianforte takes questions, Montana and drunk driving, Obama and ISIS, the DEA and Reefer Madness, and this week’s “One More Thing” is a must read!

Caught My Eye…

Note: I received word yesterday that former United States Senator Conrad Burns died. He was 81.

As many of you know, I had the honor of working for Conrad for about 12 years on his U.S. Senate staff. You can read my commentary about Burns and a few stories about my time with him by clicking HERE.

My condolences go to his family and friends.
