I wrote a rather personal article last week. My own children warned me of writing such an article in a middle-America newspaper. And they were right. I received several rather ignorant rants as to my personality even though they had never met me. I had a couple of quite intelligent replies d…

Joe: “Never waste a good crisis” is a saying coined by Winston Churchill and then used extensively by Rahm Emanuel when he was mayor of Chicago. It has been popping up quite a bit these days. Why? Because the coronavirus (which has caused major disruptions of our lives in so many ways) has b…

This week, President Donald Trump came under fire for his use of the phrase “Chinese virus” to describe the coronavirus, the source of the new pandemic that has led to a global economic shutdown, as well as lockdowns of citizens in every major Western country. That media have somehow found t…

Joe Biden has once again defeated Bernie Sanders, this time in the Illinois primary and two others Tuesday night. The Democratic game is over. They have a candidate who will face the president in November. For many years, I have loathed the principles of the Democratic Party. In looking back…

The Democratic presidential field is down to two old, white males, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders. Though they are said to represent two polar-opposite wings of the party, on one issue, they are in complete agreement. They both have solemnly pledged to destroy millio…

Now that Super Tuesday is behind us, I will start out admitting I was wrong about Michael Bloomberg winning the Democrats’ nomination. I thought his money would buy his way in. It might be somewhat refreshing to know it didn’t, although a case could be made for really bad planning of getting…
