Thoughts on a cold Sunday night

Thoughts on a cold Sunday night

Like over 100 million other Americans, this past Sunday I hunkered down to watch the 52nd playing of National Football League’s Super Bowl. And, like many I have thoughts (unlike you, I can publish mine in print — yup, it’s great to be me). * * * This was the first big game in years […]

Dang backroom dealings makes us Michiganders

I woke up groggily the other Monday (I believe it was Nov. 26) to the TV news babe commenting something or other about a new bill our very own Governor Snyder had signed into law. Eyes closed, but ears opened, I thought I heard the sad news, delivered way too cheerily, “It’s official! Governor Snyder […]
