Caught My Eye…

Objective journalism and an opinion column are about as similar as the Bible and Playboy magazine. – Walter Cronkite

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME) – the 331st 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, Gianforte & the House, Obamacare Repeal, REAL ID, Missouri Legislature, Buzzfeed News & Trump, and much more!
