Caught My Eye…

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, May good luck pursue you each morning and night. – Irish Blessing

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

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 on today include the Montana Legislature’s party-line votes, the “America First” budget, Sean Spicer & wiretapping, Sean Hannity & Jihad, McDonald’s tweet, and much more!



Thursday Numbers

Thanks for stopping by to read this week’s edition of “Thursday Numbers.”

This week I write about the Powerball lottery, government overpayments, unemployment claims, expanding Medicaid, Ravalli County, dueling in DC, this column, the nun, McDonalds & Heather, Daytona 500, NASCAR, Afghanistan, nothing to hoot at, USA medal count, Tara Lipinski, John Glenn, Montana roads & Max Baucus, and much more so read on…


Thursday Numbers

Finally – January ends today! Congrats on making it!

If this is your first time visiting The Western Word, “Thursday Numbers” is my weekly column where I take a look at the numbers in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes laced with just a little sarcasm.

Please note that if you read this column you may be able to use the information to impress your family, friends, and co-workers. Then again, when they find out you spend your time reading blogs they may not be that impressed…

This week I write about unemployment, Senator Menendez, McDonalds in Moscow, KC and the Sunshine Band, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Glacier National Park, State of the State speech, the 14 MPH speed limit, Armed Services, Secretary of Defense, lunch money, Blackberry 10, the Super Bowl, and much more!
