Immediately Loudon Wainwright III’s 1972 novelty song Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road played in my mind. Let’s explore. Continue reading Live Skunk In The Senate

It’s Thursday. I had a wild idea the other day and there are a bunch of things that don’t constitute a full article (in one case yet) but that I wanted to cover. How to resolve my dilemma? Why not combine them? Let’s explore. Continue reading An October Surprise? (And Some Current Stuff Too)

Having gone to sleep a bit earlier than unusual on Monday night I awoke to two news blurbs on Tuesday morning that caught my interest. Armed with those teases I was anxious to read the morning papers. Let’s explore. Continue reading Developing And Disturbing Story Plus A Dilemma
