Caught My Eye…

Elections remind us not only of the rights but the responsibilities of citizenship in a democracy. – Robert Kennedy

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 Greg Gianforte, Rob Quist, Mark Wicks, Donald Trump, the Stanley Cup, the NBA Finals, and Memorial Day!
