Tragic? Yes. Scary? Yes. The NRA's fault? Get real!

U-n-g-r-a-t-e-f-u-l

By now, all of us have heard about the three UCLA freshmen basketball players who were caught shoplifting in China a couple of weeks ago. Yeah, that is a pretty bad thing. Stealing is bad enough but...

 

BITS AND PIECES: YET AGAIN

Once again, so many stories, so little room to write. Sort of like a Lays potato chip, I cannot have just one. So here goes. 1. DOUG JONES FOR SENATE. In my column, I do try to remain "politics neutra...

Bat-Guano Crazy

As I sit here writing this Robservation, another "car into the crowd" attack just happened in Barcelona, Spain; 14 dead and a hundred or so injured. CNN, not surprisingly, suggested that it was a...

"IT IS A CRUEL WORLD, HERR HAUPTMAN. YOU SAID IT YOURSELF."
