Caught My Eye…

In honor of 9-11:

Remember the hours after September 11th when we came together as one to answer the attack against our homeland. We drew strength when our firefighters ran upstairs and risked their lives so that others might live; when rescuers rushed into smoke and fire at the Pentagon; when the men and women of Flight 93 sacrificed themselves to save our nation’s Capitol; when flags were hanging from front porches all across America, and strangers became friends. It was the worst day we have ever seen, but it brought out the best in all of us.  –U.S. Senator John Kerry (2004)

Welcome to Friday – and this is not just any Friday – this is the Friday before the first Sunday of NFL football!

If you are a first-time visitor, the highly popular “Caught My Eye” has been posted here every Friday morning since October 2010! This column is where I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. Sometimes I throw in a touch of snarkiness to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Today I write about Corey Stapleton and the Montana GOP, the Montana High Tech Jobs Summit, fundraisers, Iran nuclear deal, government shutdown, the eleven, suicide awareness, and much more so buckle up!
