I'm amazed how many partisans believe that the world as we know it will end if the other side's candidate wins the presidency. Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter is the latest to say, "it's over," if her side doesn't win: “If Trump doesn’t win, it’s over,” she told The Washington Examiner Wednesday.

I don't know what surprises me more -- that U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz didn't back down when given a chance to endorse Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio., last night. Or that Trump gave Cruz an opportunity to denounce him at the national convention. Can anyone explain what's going on?

Mike Kennedy Facebooks: "In the last several years I have seen a decline in quality, selection of books, and even cleanliness in their stores in Cd'A and Boise, so I can't say this is a shock. I'm sorry for those folks who will have to make a career shift. It's good that the Well-Read Moose exists in Riverstone now." (Q: Do you still buy books?)

Say it ain't so, Joe. The Norman (Okla.) Transcript reports that Hastings Entertainment is going to close all its stores by Oct. 31. The SR is working on a store. Hastings is one of the few stores that I frequent. It's popular in Coeur d'Alene. Nice vibe. But I suppose selling books, magazines and renting video isn't the way to go any more.

I've been listening to the Republican Convention as I garden during the viewtiful summer evenings that we've been experiencing. I was surprised that Ben Carson connected the dots between Hillary Clinton and Lucifer, via Sal Alinsky. The speech by Donald Trump Jr seemed OK (until I learned there might be a mini-scandal involving it, too).
