My Words are My Own

(rant on) I have to get this one off my chest before I stuff my head in the wall. Why, in God's creation, do people feel compelled to put "my words are my own", or something to that effect, in their social media profiles!? The "PC" side of it is to make sure people don't misinterpret their words as speaking for the ...

Dollar = Vote

No folks, this is not a rant about the one percent, corrupt politicians, bribery, or any of that crazy stuff. I might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I am also not dumb enough to dip my toes in that water.

Live Dangerously

No, this is about the effect that only one percent could have. To give credit where credit is due, this was ...

Beer Spillage Analysis

I am finally following up on my LONG-awaited and SUPER-detailed analysis of the big question that we all struggle with on a daily basis:  "What is the value of beer spilled at Wrigley Field during an average game?"  Potentially life-changing stuff here, I realize that, so I apologize for my delay in releasing my ...
