I would like to apologize for my absence last month. I just had too much stuff going on, and it just happened to coincide with the article deadline. I was a little bit more than late, as nearly a week went by before I realized at all, and I certainly wasn’t intentionally trying to create […]

On being tired of choosing between the lesser of two evils… On March 18, I had the severe misfortune of attending the El Paso County Democrat’s St. Patrick’s Day Gala Dinner. It wasn’t my idea. I was just trying to humor a member of our Area Labor Council, who believed the dinner would be a […]

Seems like the professional football season just ended but, already, talk of a lockout for the coming season is dominating the world of sporting news.

C. is taking a lot of heat for possibly provoking the recent and tragic shooting spree event, in Tucson, let’s not forget that the crazy will always be with us.
