Caught My Eye…

Better days are coming; they are called Saturday and Sunday. – Unknown

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 CNN Town Hall, Steve Daines, Greg Gianforte, School Resource Officer, Lindsey Vonn, Fake News, Olympic Figure Skating, and One More Thing!
