Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!”

It was 13 years ago today that the United States was attacked. May God bless those we lost and their families and friends. May we never forget.

“Thursday Numbers” is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary (sometimes spiked with sarcasm) just to make you smile, shake your head, or make you send me nasty e-mails or Tweets.

This week I write about Hot Lotto, unemployment, the President’s speech, closed primaries, a tray of beer, protecting us from terrorism, congressional approval ratings, Adam Sanchez Jr., Ryan Leaf, Enterovirus D68, and much more!

Caught My Eye…

Happy Friday folks – welcome to the (almost) award-winning Caught My Eye! The weekend is upon us and some folks have three days off  with Monday being the Federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.

If this is your first time visiting The Western Word, the “Caught My Eye” column is posted every Friday morning right here. This is where I take a quick look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week – and I often throw in some sarcasm just to make you smile. So get ready to head into your weekend armed with knowledge and a smile.

Today I write about the Montana Senate Republicans “Pep Talk,” Hunters against Hunter, Baucus and Guns, Term Limits, Ryan Leaf, Lance Armstrong, Journalist/Stripper, and much much more…
