GOP stance on Libya...

When the news becomes relevant...

Good evening, Netizens... If the Obama administration had chosen to ignore the potential massacre of the rebels in Libya, Republicans would right now be having a field day, condemning him for weakness and moral cowardice. The deafening howls of outrage from the Republicans would make...

End of the road for Prairie Flyer...

Good morning, Netizens... It seems like a decade has passed so quickly I barely can remember the first time I heard Jim Faddis, a former detective of the Spokane Police Department, singing from atop the Floating Stage in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho on a hot summer...

Michelle Bachmann hits Iowa

Michelle Bachmann hits Iowa...

Good evening, Netizens... Michelle Bachmann is a source of genuine fright to me, not because I am necessarily terrified of her, but I find she is a larcenous vile-mouthed woman who cannot seem to keep her mouth shut at appropriate occasions in my opinion. However,...

GOP attack on poverty to balance the budtget

Budget balancing with an ax? 11 

Good morning, Netizens... Yesterday, quite by accident, during one of my business-related trips, I encountered the ubiquitous Mhibbs and, at his urging, he and I agreed to meet for coffee far off our typical beaten path. Given the number of news topics that have garnered...

Elizabeth Taylor passes on at age 79... 

Good morning, Netizens... I admit, with a certain degree of chagrin, that I never was particularly an Elizabeth Taylor fan. In fact, I had not seen any of her movies until long after they went into syndication and were appearing on late-night television and there...

David Horsey on Libya

This is progress... right? 

Good morning, Netizens... We seem to be in a quagmire in Libya, or so cartoonist David Horsey suggests. We are either damned if we do or damned if we don't. We cannot simply turn our backs on Gaddafi and allow him to continue killing his...

Horsey on Libya

How much good will the no-fly zone be? 

Good evening, Netizens... David Horsey observes in his cartoon that the depths of Libya's political wasteland is accompanied by lots of international finger-pointing, which probably was true prior to when the United Nations Security Council spread the responsibility for cleaning up the mess to parts...

When the real facts emerge... 

Good morning, Netizens... I am sick to death of listening to the half-truths and outright lies being told in the news media, if not the alternative news media sources about unfolding events in Japan with regard to the nuclear crises. Over the previous 72 hours...

The scope of the disaster in Japan... 

Good morning, Netizens... I have not been ignoring the news from Japan of the earthquake and tsunami; rather I have been hoping against hope that it might begin to clarify itself, to begin to fall into some level of stability. Here we are at day...

Womens world

A Woman's World...

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } Good evening, Netizens... In David Horsey's cartoon today, we are not looking into the future world of women, but perhaps a grim view of the present and past, for there is little of the past which has changed over the...

BYU's Honor Code and collegiate sports... 

Good morning, Netizens... Earlier this week, Brandon Davies, the star forward on Brigham Young University's nationally ranked basketball team was suspended for the season after violating the school's Honor Code. The 6-foot-9 sophomore didn't plagiarize any term papers, nor did he commit any felonies. No,...

Is there a civic-minded billionaire?

Good afternoon, Netizens... According to cartoonist David Horsey, is there such a thing as a civic-minded billionaire, or are they all as self-serving as this cartoon suggests they may be? I've been in the homes of a few billionaires and millionaires and in nearly every...

An electric VW Hippy Van for the masses.... 

Good evening, Netizens... Here's one for Jeanie's Mechanic Man. One of the many mechanical loves of my life was a 1969 pale green and white Volkswagen Van which I acquired from a semi-destitute student after he had blown a rod through the sidewall of the...

Horsey examines Michelle Obama's White House Garden

First Lady gets panned for her garden...

Good evening, Netizens... While I'll concede here in Eastern Washington, it is perhaps a long time before we will once again begin turning the soil in preparation for our gardens, it seems inevitable that once again some of our families will begin that annual ritual...
