Caught My Eye…

Welcome to the first Friday of August and a new edition of “Caught My Eye!”

Buckle up!

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” 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 – or both.

Today I write about War College-Department of Defense-War College, RED HORSE, Daines’ Ad “Handshake,” Veterans Reform Bill, Suing President Obama, MTV, plus we have a winner who is Making Montana Proud. There’s much more so read on!

Caught My Eye…

TGIF!  Congratulations on making it through another week.  For your reward, I’ve written a special edition of Caught My Eye for the end of July.

Caught My Eye (or CME as we like to call it around the newsroom) is where I take a look at some of the stories that I did not have time to comment about during the week.  Sometimes I add just a touch of sarcasm.  I also try to make my readers smile and forget about their worries (not really).

Sit back and relax.  Grab a cup of your favorite drink and enjoy the read… Continue reading
