This is blatant sensationalism

Apparently we’ll be hearing a lot about sensationalism as President Donald Trump takes office, because of that top-secret dossier we can’t talk about because it’s unverified. It’s salacious, outrageous and contagious, and we won’t be a party to it

Tweetstorm warning issued

Spooked by sparking space heaters

We’re using “winter” loosely, right now, as technically it is not winter, yet. Winter begins with the solstice at 5:44 a.m. Wednesday and lasts until the vernal equinox at 6:29 am EDT Monday, March 20.

“Mansplaining” has a range of descriptions, from erudite, cogent, astute, insightful, charitable and “epiphany,” to trite, arrogant, patronizing, paternalistic, pedantic, infuriating, irretrievably broken and “irreconcilable differences.”

Vote before the wieners run out

Wiener jokes were hot Friday, when the FBI tied Hillary Clinton to the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal the same day the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile was in town and footlong hotdogs were on sale at the fair.

America doesn’t force flag loyalty

People are free to pick on Colin Kaepernick for not standing for the Star Spangled Banner, but the U.S. Supreme Court during World War II ruled public schools are not permitted to force students to swear loyalty to national symbols, though some schools still try to.
