Maybe Dictators Aren’t All Bad

This spring my son wanted to play a sport. He tried tennis, but after a few practices, he decided it wasn’t his thing. His buddy then suggested he give lacrosse a try. When he came home from his first practice, I asked him how it went. He replied, “You get to run around and hit […]

More Robes than Ric Flair

Last week I wrote about a bill introduced by Democratic legislators that would propose to expand the Supreme Court from 9 justices to 13. While this seems like an unprecedented move, it is certainly not the first time the number of justices on the Supreme Court fluctuated. While many people assume the number of justices […]

It’s a Numbers Game

As I’m writing this article, the Brewers are currently tied for first place in their division with the Cincinnati Reds. I’m trying not to get my hopes up because it’s only April, but as they say on TV, if the season were to end today, we’d be in the playoffs. On opening day, the Brewers, […]

Russian to Outer Space

When I was a kid in the ‘80s, the Cold War was at its peak. Tons of movies had the Soviets as antagonists, such as ‘Rocky IV,’ ‘Red Dawn,’ ‘War Games,’ ‘No Way Out,’ ‘Firefox’ and even comedies like ‘Spies Like Us.’ Then the Berlin Wall came down, the Soviet Union broke up and we […]

Not What They Had in Mind

The last six months have been a struggle for most people on the planet due to the COVID-19 virus. Things have been tough physically, emotionally and spiritually, but also financially. Thankfully, in March, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or CARES Act. The $2.2 trillion economic stimulus bill included $300 billion […]

Target Practice

Last week I wrote about the increased use of drones during the pandemic – you might say they’re flying off the shelves. Drones can handle multiple tasks that, if performed by a person, would require close interaction – something that is problematic if we’re trying to social distance. Drones are being used to deliver groceries […]
