Thursday Numbers

Excellence is not a skill, it’s an attitude. – Ralph Marston

Happy National Coffee Day!

Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm.

This week’s topics include Donald Trump’s net worth, Montana’s budget surplus, debate viewers, unemployment, false statements, Montana’s lottery for liquor licenses, Congress & the spending bill, medical marijuana initiative I-182, Kansas City Royals, the override of President Obama’s veto, and much more!



The First Presidential Debate

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – one will be the next President of the United States of America. Lord help us!

Here are my thoughts about the first presidential debate.

Saturday Night Live may have to expand their show to fit all the skits they could do from this one 90 minute debate.

It was one of the most anticipated presidential debates ever. For the first half, it mostly lived up to expectations. For some, it was probably not nasty enough.

You can vote for who you think won the debate right here at The Western Word. I will keep the poll open until early Wednesday morning.
