I found a ’possum tail in front of my front door Monday. Hilarious. I laughed and laughed. ...

Looks like now it’s become obvious that we know why Gov. Blunt is not running for re-election. No. 1 is he doesn’t want to lose because he’s behind in the polls. No. 2 is he’s going to lose because he’s behind in the polls. ...

I think it’s so cute these guys that did the Mr. Smith-Cotton pageant. I sure wish I’d have known about it ahead of time. I would have gone.

A Band-Aid is about all that this rebate is going to do and it is probably going to cause more problems than it does solutions.

Second, I wanted to congratulate you on the article about the costsly health plan that the Democrats are proposing. I am a Democrat, a little bit left of center, and retired.

This stimulus package that Congress wants to give back to the taxpayer, be smart, don’t spend it. The consumer can play this game too. What will happen is the stock market will continue its yo-yo up and down. Don’t panic and go out and buy a big-screen TV or take that trip to Caribbean. Just set tight.

Good luck and happy spending.
