2017 – A Year In Review

Today is New Year’s Eve. At midnight we say goodbye to 2017 and welcome in 2018. I’m happy about the former and apprehensive about the latter. Today I want to briefly review what I thought were the top five political stories of 2017. Interestingly the first four link back to the last. In reverse order here they are.

ISIS’ 2017 Man Of The Year: Donald Trump

Please note this article has an element of fiction to it in that I neither speak for ISIS nor am in any sort of communication with them. In fact as far as I know they do not name a Man of the Year award. (It certainly wouldn’t be Person of the Year).

I Remember When American Presidents Were Leaders

I’m writing further ahead than normal. It is Monday morning and I’m already writing Thursday’s article. There were plenty of topics to choose from. When I went to bed last night this wasn’t at the top of the list. This morning I saw brief news coverage of the five living former presidents coming together for American citizens. The current occupant of the White House basically mailed it in. I feel old because I can still remember when American presidents regardless of Party we leaders. Let’s explore.
